    Does Robot really not understand, or simply doesn't want to understand? He may like a particular brand of beer (or maybe lubricant), but not everyone else does. So does he reply that he's tried them all, they are all the same, therefore his brand is just as good? Everyone is an individual, as long as they agree with Robot.

    Robot, What i was trying to say is, when you've been using windows 8 on a laptop with a mouse, then going to a tablet with windows 8 takes an extra bit of learning. ie closing apps on laptop move mouse to top left, find app, left click close. you can't do that on the tablet. I understand that they're two different devices, I feel the need to be to seperate OS's.
    Cheers

    Open Charms bar:

    -Mouse: Point to top right then point downward
    -Touch: Swipe from the right bezel

    Close app:

    -Mouse: Point to top of app, click and hold then point downward
    -Touch: Swipe from top bezel

    Switch app:

    -Mouse: Point to top left, then click on the app
    -Touch: Swipe from left bezel.

    Really that easy.

    Easy, but utterly stupid and 'point'less on a desktop.

    I was trying to explain to the OP for gestures on a touch screen.
    The OP said that he was forced to relearn to use Windows 8 after using mouse + keyboard to a touchscreen.

    What is it ?


    I need to RANT!

    Windows 8 would be good if the OS was split, keep pad OS's away from desktops and laptops. I have a pad and laptop with Windows 8, it drives me insane changing between the two, I don't know how I haven't smashed one of these devices. Bill if your reading this " you need to wake up and smell the coffee!" What were you thinking

    I have no idea what so ever as to what you are complaining about. But if you are willing to give explicit details, I am willing to listen.

    Windows 8 is an absolutely phenomenal , scientific, biological advancement in human ingenuity and development. For the first time it has melded the attributes of Homo sapiens expertise in using tools with a combination of exploiting the dialectric aspect of the human finger/touch which can be detected by an ingenious invention of a touch screen that is built with multiple layers of cross wires, horizontal, vertical, capable of translating the touch to a cursor movement to sends commands to an absolutely other ingenious invention to perform mind boggling results.

    A lot of people confuse the dislike of the way that the MPI (Mobile Phone Interface) works, with an inability to be able to use it. There is a world of difference between the two. Most people catch on very quickly and just as quickly begin to dislike it and ask why is it so. Some love the MPI, others hate it, especially for its inflexibility. You are locked into a 'window', you no longer have 'windows', as a reviewer once stated 'It should be called Window 8.'.

    I have no use for the MPI or its associated apps. I can use it I understand it completely and I maintain it has no place on a real PC and should not have been foisted upon us. Fortunately thanks to the ingenuity of other individuals it can be almost completely removed and hidden. Microsoft should have given that option.

    Isn't Bill Gates chairman of the board?

    I have a feeling the board might have some say in what goes on.

    He is a chairman but he doesn't have an active involvement in Microsoft only when Ballmer calls on him to make certain decisions, like killing the Courier tablet project.

    Bill Gates is eradicating polio and malaria and has no use for money at this point, other than for charity work.
