re: Microsoft To Windows 8 Haters: Try This Mouse
That's great news. After all the money spent on a new machine with Win8, I get to spend more to get it to work the way I'd like. I'm wondering who MS is hiring as UI engineers. (Back in the day we called them Human Factors, but the name is unimportant.) If anyone considered that for most people effective change comes in increments, then they would set up their new 'look' as an option to turn on or off, with enough advantages to motivate users to turn it on. Just like my android phone presents a new dialer interface with every upgrade (What was wrong with the previous? Oh, nothing, the new designer preferred circles over squares, so we changed it.), MS must change things to keep the money coming in (new tests for certification, etc.), without really adding much value. No, I won't be buying a new mouse. I'm still working to remove the tiles, if not permanently, then at least as much out of the way as possible, so I can work as efficiently as in the past.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
