No I mean how many monitors?
I have a theory that the lovers of the new start screen only have one monitor/screen, once you have more than that then it's bloody useless.
I only use 1 monitor, does it not support multi monitors properly? what could you do on W7 that you can't on W8?
No, everything is stuck in the primary screen metro display and the other screens just show your desktop.
The charmbar is also virtually impossible to open via the mouse, multiple remote desktops by default can only be used in on the primary display and you change between each one rather than have them on different screens, I really could go on and on at the failings for the power user but there's no point because as it stands I'm sticking with Windows 7.
As MS seem hell bent on grabbing a slice of the phone/tablet market so they can secure their income via app downloads plus a bit on the side called monthly cloud subscriptions then they will alienate a fair few normal desktop users. I don't think MS are going to offer the classic UI for Win8 even though they could grab some extra $$$'s by doing so. Certainly by all accounts Win8 is a far superior OS to Win7 and they could sell it based on that alone.
MS though have bet the farm on this. Many tech companies have done this in the past. Some have succeeded and many have failed.
I voted yes because I am used to that orb right there and I don't want my taskbar to look flat. The new Windows logo is ugly to me. No contrast of the 4 colors. If they still have the charm bar at the right and the old Start button and Start Menu on the lower left of the Taskbar, I think, it will favor more people, whether you're a Metro lover or not, that would favor both worlds. What's the harm with that.
Well, for me I like the metro, like that you can have everything (almost everything) when on the start you click the mouse on the right.
Myself, I do not need more.
Still every week I hear people say "what a loud of crap Vista was" and I reply "what didn't you like about it?" and they often can't reply.
I know Vista needed more RAM, but otherwise it was a big improvement over Windows XP. The main reason it got a bad name was because it was a big step, and removing the start menu looks like a too bigger step for many people, but it's really not!
