Windows 7 shines on!
That any user would have to go through this to have a tolerable desktop experience only points to the foolishness of forcing a touch screen OS on desktop users, who will not tolerate a wall of buttons slamming down on their work to access Start menu functions, not when they already had the best OS ever.
Hence I wanted to see what all was involved to make a productive 8 desktop experience based on having come to learn what is most appreciated in the Win7 desktop experience.
The context of this is best witnessed over at EightForums much busier sister SevenForums which has become the top tech forum on the web riding the tide of tens of millions of Win7 users who are only now fully discovering and falling in love with it.
Yet it appears consumers buying a new PC are to be offered no choice of the best OS ever but forced to buy a touchscreen OS when there is almost no demand for touchscreen desktops.
