    Ah Windows 8. The operating system for people who can't manage their own desktop and need the operating system to do it for them.

    It pretty much looks that way!

    I find that Win7 picture a bit exaggerated though. I mean double shortcuts for Firefox, IE and some other items?
    All those gadgets together eat a lot of startup time, you get double the boot time half the fun situations.

    The perfect revenge is not the gift of 8. Windows 8 is entirely usable so the comic strip is an inaccurate funny whimsical farce.

    It's not that simple. 8 has not been designed as a tool for lazy people. It is a transitional OS that introduces a technology shift in OS coding that will eventually phase out the familiar desktop. Win32 and NT technologies will be replaced by WinRT and other more secure code, software and hardware platforms that are necessary to provide a safer and less error prone environment. App sales and cloud services are only an extension in the evolution of code technologies.

    I'm liking Win8 more and more every day, but of course I'm using the Classic shell "crutch"!

Why doesn't Microsoft just remake the start menu with 2 sides, one to open the classic windows 7 start menu. And the other one to open the Metro UI. Honestly it seems to be the best way to do it I like using both although can't live with out the old start menu.
