Windows 8 was purposefully designed for handhelds and should only be used on handhelds.
Why computer manaufacturers and vendors insist on selling new desktop computers with Windows 8 is beyond me because as a desktop it is close to useless. Even if they provided the user with an option for:
A. use touchscreen and limited menus/controls
B. use normal desktop (like 7)
Anyone that uses a computer for more than email and simple apps will find that teh functions of their normal software is not supported, ie: you can use Windows 8 for amusement and even then that is limited.
A lot of friends have upgraded their notebook and can only get Windows 8. Now they want to revert to their old notebook and cannot sell the new notebook even at 30% of what was paid.
Microsoft should sack the execs responsible or force them to actually use use a computer for business instead of a phone... show them to the real world. I mean, what do they know of, just messaging?
Even the Mac users, the ones trying running Windows in a VM, are saying "that it is worse than Vista!".
Windows 8 should be renamed "Windows Mobile"!
