With a new CEO, it’s time for some changes. There are probably a whole lot of things that Mr. Nadella should be doing right away, but I’ll start with 5 of them. You have any other ideas, leave them in the comments.
1. Fix Desktop Windows
Really. The Metro interface – or whatever it is called now – is a disaster on a large screen and should never have made it to the desktop OS. On a big screen it looks like the Teletubbies might waddle their way across the screen at any moment. It looks childish, it’s klunky, and I don’t want it on a computer that I use for work.
Is Metro nice on phones and tablets? Yes, it is rather nice. But I’m sure it wasn’t designed for a desktop and it should not be there.
Give us back the Start button the way it was, and for god’s sake get rid of the crap that floats out from the right side of my screen every time my mouse passes there…that is so annoying.
Without these gripes, Windows 8.x is actually pretty good. So fix it and gain millions of customers.
