quote: And by the way, you are joking yourself if you think Linux will be mainstream any time soon. Sorry, but to do anything with Linux you have to learn and use the terminal at some point. Talk about taking a time warp back 20 years.
quote: I actually use my PC to work every day. At this moment I have 17 windows open across three monitors. My quick launch menu has 15 applications in it. My star menu is used quite a bit. Pinning and grouping applications is pointless and slow. Metro is equally pointless and slow. My task menu has 10 applications currently listed. I use/click them all.
quote: I have a lot going on in my job. I need a desktop environment which works for me. Metro just doesn't. I don't want to spend time hacking my corporate PC to make it function like Windows 7 does flawlessly. That's unacceptable.
