Because it's impossible to make Win32 apps be compatible on an ARM processor. Because Win32 apps that use menus and tiny toolbar buttons don't work on touch interfaces. Because clicking and dragging windows around a screen doesn't work well in a touch interface.And why do we need this? Why not make the apps Windows compatible? Why Metro-only apps? Why a separate workspace? Why a separate workspace subsystem? Why an UI in the UI? Didn't we have DOS for the same effect? Weren't we happy when finaly all DOS apps were replaced by Windows apps? Why returning the DOS look-alike model 20 years later?
You will have trouble removing it.
Ms have deliberately infiltrated the thing so it is difficult to get rid of.
It started after the WDP release - I think they saw most were using the desktop and ignoring metro - they panicked and with successive builds they starting spreading metro like a terminal disease.
No need for it - the reason people were ignoring it in WDP was there was nothing much to use it for - but they misunderstood the telemetry.
mdmd, are you paying attention? You're good indeed, but I think as long as it Mystere is around you'll be second best. Can anyone name the movie?....
Metro is a controversial topic.
Some how I always get myself into this kind of mess. A bad habit of mine. I speak before I think, therefore I post before I think. I read Mystyres's post and immediately thought of you. My sincere apology comparing you to anyone. You are unique in every way. Please forgive me.I am. Don't believe I am anything. My days of writing code in Report Program Generator, COBOL, Assembly, Pascal, Basic and C++ are long since over. My experience is understanding how a CPU and motherboard work. ... If that were not complex enough, I am unable to convince anyone that Windows 8 is a good thing.
Yes. We are not here to convince anyone of anything. Each human being is unique in there perspective. But, I love a great debate!
Thanks for pointing out 8Nation's post. A great statement indeed! Realistic and poetic.
