Well said.

After almost 2 years I still have to hunt for things in that damn ribbon. Ribbons and tiles and touch! Oh my! I guess if all you do is sit in Facebook or chat or email they are fine. Also, from the sound of the article, we should be glad we can still use a keyboard and mouse! I would not be surprised if they tried to gut them within the next release or two.

Change for an improvement is one thing but I have yet to see any real improvement? I have seen a lot of detriment though. So, why change simply for change sake?

Assuming by the Facebook comment you use your computer for more then just Facebook, chat, and email...

It's taken you more then 2 years of regular use to learn to effectively use a peice of computer software? If you use computers every day you are in the wrong industry.

I'm pretty sure there are some elementary school kids that probably use windows 8 better then everyone who complains about it. What does that really say about them? Is Windows 8 bad? Or are they less compitent at learning new skills then 8 year olds?

No the problem is unlearning the previous 15 years of use and programming of under the Windows STANDARD GUI guidelines.

If your use of Excel or Access required you to do anything more advanced than an 8th grader, you could know this. Not much need for it though with your head in a browser huh?
