Survey period: 28 Oct 2013 to 4 Nov 2013

Microsoft sees the non-desktop "Metro" UI as the future of Windows. Is this the direction the industry must take, or a mis-fire?

GeneralMetro should be a layer on top of the desktop UI... Pin

... and one that can go completely away. There was no reason not to leave the desktop UI completely intact, but no, Microsoft has to f*** with the Start button and create a presentation layer that for some reason also means you have to disable automatic updates in two places instead of one. WTF does the presentation layer have anything to do with the underlying OS behavior?

I hope that when Ballmer leaves, some semblance of intelligence will again grow back out of the primordial ooze that now seems to constitute Microsoft's collective "thinking."
