They are working polychronisticly with a taskbar, multiple open apps and floating windows. That is rubbish. Do this for your favorite apps, then everything you want is right there. Most people I've dealt with who haven't been using computers since 95 or 98, have been the same way.

Yes, I turned off all the updating tiles, deleted all the stupid ones I don't care about, and I'm left with a handful of apps that are incompatible with metro, and I dont make excuses for them, however i do think its a case of damned if they do, damned if they dont.

I won't run Modern Mix, I'll wait for the update that adds this to Windows. For example, you can now pin Modern mobile apps to the taskbar in Update 1. when you were in the modern gui the desktop taskbar was visible and operable. click site There are two icons for a single running app on the taskbar, and it's impossible to tell what's going on when trying to close the app.

Sticking a tablet-style interface on a PC makes no sense. BUT - you have to admit - you can pin many more apps on the Start Screen than you ever could on Start Menu (change till size to small). Files, including those on completely different hard drives, can now be edited.

You know you can turn off tile updating right? max999 Thank you Joel for a well written article. Modern UI ***is*** a dumbing down of the UI, and exists for tablet users, people with touch displays.
