This seems like a good time to ask a question regarding the difference between x86 or Win 7, or desktop apps, and the touch based Metro style apps. The above discussion regarding the settings in Skype is a good example. Heretofore Windows o/s has been the most popular o/s in the world, selling about 360 million copies per year, year after year. Win 8 changes all of that and makes the o/s less adjustable or useful for users, and MS sees this as an improvement? I keep hearing that MS is going to get rid of the desktop and all apps will be Metro style. Will the new, improved apps have all the capabilities of the older Win 7 type apps? If not, then how is this an improvement? Additionally, how will finger touch based apps have all of the capabilities of mouse based apps? First of all, no right mouse button. Second, no precise pointer positioning. Third of all, no multiple windowed interface with apps able to run multiple tasks at the same time. It seems Win 8 style apps are single tasked, or two or three tasks at the most. Win 7 apps can, and do run dozens of apps at the same time. I used an Amiga computer for the 9 years or so in which it was a viable o/s. The Amiga had a windowed interface and it had screens that were not windows and could only be gotten to by keyboard shortcuts. At least they multi-tasked. It seems that Win 8 is going back to that limited or constricted o/s style, and it regards this as an advance in computer interface. It seems to be a step backward to me. Or, am I wrong on this? What are the advantages to going to a finger touch based interface if the user loses many of the advantages of the prior mouse based interface?
