Windows 8 : It’s for tablets, not for your PC. Don’t make a complete fool of yourself.

Windows 8

Windows 8Microsoft announced it’s completely new Operating System once again and people jumped on a wagon wheel to upgrade to it at a cheap discounted price. That’s not bad. Easier and cheaper upgrade is always one of the most cutting-edge strategy for marketing. But don’t make a fool of yourself by doing that in a hurry. Windows 8 is made for tablets, not for your PC.

Microsoft has made a complete generation of PC users to be grown up with the habits of doing things the easier way. I completely understand the argument that it may as well be a User Experience habit. But Come’ on which pattern would you chose to interact with a computer to accomplish a job ? Option 1 – Double click or left click->click->click->click. That would work in most of the cases. If not, the worst thing you would have to do is to right-click –> select some option in the pop-up and anything would work eventually. Option 2 – Move your mouse pointer all around the desktop, hoping you would find the mysterious [G-spot] spot somewhere and even after that you have to wait there for a second for something to pop-up, and if you’re lucky enough that would be the option you were looking for. That’s Windows 8 for you in a nutshell. It is like a bad blind date, you do not want to live with her.
