What is with people defending Windows 8 all of a sudden? Regardless of what Microsoft does to fix it, the base idea behind it is flawed and toxic. Microsoft made a mobile OS, and tried to pawn it off on desktop users. That's not okay.

I'd say its coming from people actually switching to and using it as opposed to just bashing it because of what they heard from some idiot that doesn't know any better.

Windows 8.1 Update makes it a li'l easier on the KB+M users. And with the proposed Start Menu in an incoming patch, things should be like Windows 7 again.

The mistake MS did was to make the Modern UI a major point when it could've been an extra activated only for touch-enabled devices. Also, they arrogantly assumed people would use touchscreen monitors, which would've been unwieldy to use in a home desktop scenario.

If you want to argue, you could quote the rest of my post. Like I said, my issue behind Windows 8 is the design philosophy. It was created for the mobile platform first, and that makes it unappealing to me. Microsoft may or may not have made it better with updates, but that's irrelevant. What is important is that they made the desktop market a second priority with Windows 8.

That would mean addressing the ridiculous "tablet OS" nonsense.

You do get that isn't exactly a good thing, right? It'd be like saying "Who hates Oblivion? Once you put mods in it it's better than Morrowind in every regard."

Needing to rely on user modification to see an improvement over the older one is a sign you have ****ed up somewhere and made something worse, otherwise people wouldn't need to mod it for it be better than the old one.
