    Libraries will no longer be displayed in the navigation panel - What the heck? rather than making it easier to access files they are further hiding them?

    Nowadays, the word applies to those in a position of monopoly power. Firms having 25% or more of the market come under the auspices of the Monopolies commission ( now the Monopolies and Mergers commission - as they also look at mergers which may result in a monopoly ).

    Monopolies are characterized by a lack of competition and a lack of viable substitute products.

    Why the crap aren't they changing the Desktop iconography?! Seriously, it's odd to have a modern Start Screen so flat, crisp, and clean to have tiles with 3D perspectives and lighting effects adjacent to modern Office app icons. Wow.



    One would think that after almost THREE plus years of Windows 8 development, iconography might be something to consider to update when it is obviously known that the Desktop UI is the most used portion of Windows 8 currently.

    May be true (probably is), but it's not relevant; all the $$ come from the customer.

    This is true, but it also becomes a big issue when the customer pulls fast ones on the company.

    Yeah, cause people don't have choices, they just refuse to make those choices,,
    oh that's right, those other choices suck worse.

    MS is not a monopoly.
    Sure, in the Consumer market (Tablet/Phone market).

    It effectively is in the Enterprise market.

    Maybe you get to dictate to your employer, but most workers have no say over:
    • The brand of PC
    • The OS
    • The software

    M$ thinks they have a monopoly but they better get back in touch with the user.

    Android alters all: Now the PC?

    The new PC may be a laptop running Android. Far-fetched? Not if HP is doing it.

    Android alters all: Now the PC? | Mobile - CNET News

    If my laptop stops running Windows, it won't be to switch to Android.

    No, it'll be one of the less cloud-oriented versions of Linux. So far I've been quite impressed with Mint Cinnamon, although it's only in a VM and I haven't done too much 'serious' stuff with it at this stage.

    Quite seriously, the only 'improvement' in 8.1 that got my interest was the small tiles. The rest is mainly irrelevant flufff I'd bypass/work around or ignore. Some, like the stuffing-up of File Explorer with the inclusion of Skydrive, but demotion or removal of Libraries are totally unwanted. That's one I'd definitely want a 3rd-party fix for.

    I've no desire to spend all that time working-around and fixing the same issues and more in 8.1 as I did with 8, when it appears that there have been no improvements on the desktop side at all, but rather more depreciation and demotion.

    No, I'm happy now with 8 the way I have it. 8.1 appears to offer me very little, if any, reason to bother with it at this time and their continuing disregard for traditional users really is becoming a bit too much. Now, unlike some, I don't come onto the forum and bag 8 for no reason, and I'm not going to start now with 8.1. A bit of consideration for the desktop users (and no, we're not going to go away) and I'd be doing the 'Hokie Cokie' (sorry, CR), but at this stage, no. Sorry.

    At this stage, I'll stick with my W8 Pro w/Media Centre.

    I have found that some businesses have the attitude of there is a right way, a wrong way, & THEIR way.

    I think Microsoft will do things their way regardless of better ways.

    When it hits them in loss of income they may do better.& only then.

    Just my opinion.Time will tell.

    In the meantime I'll keep Win 8 Pro & Classic Shell.

    As a customer service veteran (50 yrs) I think you have a bad outlook on your customers.
    1. 100% of them each pay a small part of your salary.
    2. 80% of them are demoralized instead of being thanked by you.


    If that is how you describe your customers, how do you think they describe your attitude as they are leaving the store?
