I'm so jaded with Windows now. I like the functionality from the legacy versions but it's obvious that they're now just going for some way to get more microtransactions with their app stores and what not. It's as if their UI is purposely trying to usher us into simple UIs and apps.

As the article says, a middle ground is what's probably best. Something where I can ignore the small appy parts of the OS and focus more on a rhobust (sp?) UI. Like bringing a proper start menu without me having to install a mod.

*completely content with Windows RT 8.1, and has no desire to return to anything more 'robust', since the only thing he'll ever use computers for are media/mail/web*

Good news, I guess. Considering non-touch PCs are getting the shit kicked out of 'em by everything else available, don't expect the touch-friendly UI to go away entirely. If anything, hope for the option to go Legacy Old Man Windows or the newer UI. Then there should be no more complaining, right?

Who am I kidding? The internet will crap itself anyway, 'cause "ZOMG WE WANT EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW, WE DEMAND CHANGE, BUT WE FEAR CHANGE, GIMMIE BACK DOS AND WINDOWS '95!"

Seriously though, I understand the complaints, specifically from businesses. Windows 7 is great for business. Windows 8 is great for what I use computers for. Combine them in Windows 9, and move along.
