re: Windows 8.1: Thanks For Listening, Microsoft
Michael, I have a Surface RT I bought for portability. That said, I use the Win8 apps all of the time. I take notes in meetings, write memos, whatever I need to do. Win8 apps are a great compliment to many "real programs". When I use Office it kicks me into the desktop which I have no problem with and I do whatever I need to do. I would imagine once all of Office has received the Win8 treatment my time in the desktop will decrease even more. As a student, there is not much I can't do in the tiled mode but I will confess that for the convenience of a full-size keyboard and mouse I do use my laptop, also Win8. Again, mostly, for convenience. There are some things I still use a desktop for, coding, web design, and photo-editing come to mind, but there are some Win8 apps out there to do that, I just haven't had the time to try them out.
I wonder if people would still feel the same if Adobe released a full-powered Win8 version of Photoshop?
