Don't get me wrong. I love my win8 machine.
But here's the thing. After using win8 for months now, I still have trouble recognizing certain apps right away. The reason icons work so well is it takes advantage of our in-built ability to recognize patterns. One look at an icon and we subconsciously know what it's for.
But a bunch of squares and rectangles...
I pointed this out to some people when the MS released the beta of win8. And I honestly thought I'd eventually get use to it. But months after, I still have to focus a little more just to know which tile to press for what.
Am I the only one?
