ISO15693: Flying Code Monkey: . People who don't get that the Start Screen is just the Start Button exploded from a corner to a screen ... don't get stuff.I think that's the best way to put it.Some people have built their own sense of identity on not liking new things. Change hurts them personally.
Marine1: One little thing changes in Windows, and suddenly, you claim that Microsoft has massive contempt for their user base.
Celerian: The biggest complaint I find is that people who HATE windows 8 are usually not willing to give up the "Start Menu" and feel that the OS is broken without it. If that's their definition of broken, then yes, it's broken. This article will tell them how to edit their registry so they never see the Metro UI interface on startup and they can get one of those third part programs to bring back their start bar. Or they could just stick with Windows 7, which is also fine.
jack21221: WhippingBoy: Windows 8 isn't that bad.You realize that this isn't exactly a ringing endorsement, right? By all accounts, Windows 7 was "really good," and here you're saying Windows 8 "isn't that bad."

Bacontastesgood: It's funny to see the people defending this turd. This is the pivot toward irrelevance for MS. They had a pretty good run - over 25 years of dominance on desktops and notebooks.

cman: bbfreak: cman: JosephFinn: What is the best feature of iOS on the iPad? A permanent hardware Home button. It isn't as convenient as going "Back" on AndroidIf Back worked consistently, that might be true. But it doesn't: I Never Have Any Idea What The Back Button Will DoBack button sucks hard.Aint nothing else to say bout thatI have never had a problem with the back button and my phone is running Gingerbread.The problem with the back button is that it has no uniformity. When you press the Home button on the iPad, you know what is going to happen. Pressing the back button is like rolling the dice taking a chance and 1/4th the time it doesnt go where you expect it to go
