The only solution for Microsoft's operating system is and always has been an Apple.

re: 8 Things Microsoft Should Fix In Windows Blue
trash-talking the latest windows os has turned into a regular pattern with informationweek... you guys really need to find a new drum-beat... there can be no question that user interface is lacking in every operating system... and it has been that way for 31 years since apple released its first gui on the lisa platform... but in every instance, we have learned to use it... or not... and when not, it has faded away (except in the minds of those who became irrationally attached to it)... but the following successive versions do seem to get better and more useful over time...

actually, no operating system will be worth a tinker's damn until the day it becomes completely ubiquitous but unseen, interacting with the user in the ways that our species has evolved to handle information, without the extraordinary attention to a keyboard or a mouse or a touchscreen, serving us with the information we need or seek, and otherwise completely unnoticed and unremarkable...

think in terms of a well-behaved HAL 9000...? rather than hammering microsoft or anyone else in this race, why don't you guys devote yourselves to helping to shape that vision...? as scoop nisker used to say, "if you do not like the news, go out an make some of your own..."

by the way, i also think this web site design for this piece falls way short... just sayin'...

One thing I would like to see in Blue is Modern UI across multiple screens. Right now, I have it appearing on my primary screen with the secondary defaulting to desktop.

i might like Windows 8 if it weren't for all that crap cluttering up the desktop.

Seriously. With full page postbacks too. They couldn't have the slideshow run in a nicer AJAX-y way?

Splitting an article into 10 different web pages is an example of extremely poor web design. Shame on the online computer publication that allows this.

I might have bothered reading all this if it wasn't split across 10 pages
