Not solely. You're thinking like Microsoft at that; as if I'm just a whiner and don't like it because its so different. Try to tell me who the "average users" are, and even if any of them remotely like Windows 8 by any aspect. What do you know about Windows 8 anyway?
The 'average user' is not a programmer, they are not someone who has multiple monitors, they are not someone who has many many files open at once. They are the type of person who runs their web browser full screen or Word fullscreen they are basically more like my mum than me.
I know that the entire user-land rests on a pile of scum, created by embarrassingly incompetent programmers and a horrible overall execution. I also know that, indeed, the Metro interface is ludicrous. I don't want to elaborate. If you actually make any observations for yourself, you probably could agree.
Really? You KNOW this? How do you KNOW this and more importantly if you know this why are you bothering to rant about it? I mean clearly if it is as broken as you KNOW then just leave and never look back.
Personally you come across as some kind of whiney kid who is so up themselves with their own view points that they can't consider someone else might well like something they don't.
Or a moron.
I can't decide which... maybe both.
Edit: OH.. I remember now.. you are the guy who started the 'Don't start yet another voxel project' thread... I KNEW I had a reason for thinking you were a self opinionated moron... glad to see my feelings were spot on then as they are now.
