COMMENTARY: A brief graphic about Windows 8

I hope Robert doesn’t mind my repost but this graphic he made perfectly expresses my thoughts on the Windows 8 Start button ‘matter’.

  1. Much like the Office ‘Ribbon’/Fluent, all it takes is an earnest attempt on the new user’s part to try to use the Start page to discover why we’re making the change.  And when someone won’t even try it to see if it’s truly better, it really betrays an individual’s inability to adapt to change.
  2. Meanwhile, every time I read a story about some OEM ‘potentially adding’ a crapware Start menu to their Windows 8 PCs, I’m reminded of why it is we’re building Surface.
