    And maybe that's where the problem is going to be - it hasn't got the fruit company logo on it. And MS does not have the same fanatical following

    In fact, now I know where Microsoft got the idea for the MPI for the desktop:

    Attachment 17838

    Attachment 17839

    They simply copied a point of sale device screen, which simplifies the process of finding the products that have been purchased, and dumbed down the entire Windows interface. It was effectively designed by pub and Macca's employees.

    Yeah, it's too hard for the dummies because they forgot the ketchup.

    If I were going to use it as a daily machine, probably. I purchased Start8 from Stardock for my new laptop running 8.

    Unfortunately that's all you hear from bloggers, how hard and confusing it is, 3 year olds and 92 olds can get to grips with it in just a few minutes yet so called tech bloggers find it confusing.

    Lets face it even people on here claim it reduces their productivity by 50%, what productivity, sitting on here all day rubbishing Windows 8.

    Yeah, but the 3 year and 92 year olds do nothing with their system. Clicking on a couple of tiles or icons is no real work.

    It's not confusing, it is just awkward.

    You're kidding right, I can't think of anything more ridiculous, as Wenda would say that's like putting fly screens on a submarine. Did I get it right Wenda.

    So you're saying its harder to click on a tile than an icon. Once you're in Excel or Photoshop or indeed any App who cares about the OS. Pin a few icons to the task bar where's the difference.

    I realize the lappy is a bennie machine for you to bring back and forth to work. You stated the Surface is a company machine for (I think you said) review and testing. I don't think your bosses would like to see a Start Menu on this one, will they? What do your higher ups think of 8?

    Kidding about what, putting the start button back? If so, no, not kidding at all. We have 5 people in our office now running 8, and 4 of them have added back Start buttons.
