Here's what you and your colleagues think about a reimagined Windows 8
If you like Windows 8, you'll like -- maybe even love -- Windows 8.1 "Blue." But if you're a denizen of the old-fashioned Desktop world without a yearning for touch and/or you don't want your PC to act like a smartphone, Windows 8.1 will disappoint -- big time.
InfoWorld's detailed proposal for a new, better Windows 8 -- called Windows Red
-- has sparked accolades, criticism, outrage, hundreds of comments, and more than a few very good suggestions. The New York Times's David Pogue said
, "It's solid. It's doable. The only serious downside to splitting up Windows is the huge servings of crow and humble pie that Microsoft would have to consume." Time Magazine's Harry McCracken said
, "It seems highly unlikely, however, that Microsoft will buy into Windows Red's overarching design principle: disentangling the Desktop and the Metro Start screen so that nobodyís shoved into a radically new interface against his or her will."
