    What Microsoft can change to make W8 more productive and enjoyable

    Windows 8 Metro idea is not so bad itís just need improvements

    If Microsoft makes the Start Page floating it will be a totally different experience. By floating I means something detachable, something you can resize, move on another monitor or even in a tablet keyboard. What I mean by a tablet keyboard; itís a tablet with a touchscreen, but without processor it will be only link to the computer as an input device, so you can use it in your family room as remote for your HTPC, or at the side of your keyboard, or simply replace your keyboard.

    For a power user with multi monitors it will change everything; the users will be able to move the start pages where he wants. But the metro apps also as to me capable of runing in a Windows too, the 66%/33% side by side is not sufficient for a PC.

    So finally the question is not is Windows 8 is better and worse than Windows

    IMO, they should reinstate the old desktop functions (start menu/button) but keep Metro as optional interactive screensaver.

    That way they can keep both without having the schitzophrenic OS behaviour that we have now.

I just authored a DVD from Windows 7 today and popped it into a laptop I just installed Windows 8 on. I uninstalled the Video and Music app since they're kind of a bug on a mouse and keyboard setup. The little metro popup came up on the top left side of the screen, and it asked if I want to play...
