    Why are you a member of this forum? Every post you make a "crap on that" comment. I've seen maybe ONE post that as positive or it contributed to the original post.

    Yes. There are hundreds of discussions about this very thing between Android and iPhone. Android has it iPhone doesn't and it is a big difference between the two.

    Live tiles have actually been pretty highly praised by all sources regardless of how negative other parts of the reviews are.

    I think he is at 14% likes to posts and you are only 11% to be technical.
    Edit...I wonder what the negative to positive ratios would be.

    You can disable the live tiles easy enough.

    Reports from a leaked version are indicating a desktop 'start' like button that switchs to the modern UI.
    But what I hear that will be valuable is that the sart screen will be much more customizable. As it is now, as you point it, the screen switch is 'jarring'. I suspect this plays into what makes so many think poorly of it. It is like you flipped a switch, not just opened a start menu.

    I wonder what my score would be if I got points for always being right, lol.

    Lol J5, I can see it now.

    Joe Shopper stops into BestBuy and looks at Windows 8. He seems a bit confused and Sally Salesperson asks him what's wrong. He says, "I really want to like Windows 8 but there just aren't enough animations!"

    More cowbell!

    That's what you're coming back with? Enjoy your "likes."

    I hope my avatar makes you lose sleep.

    I think you have missed the point. You claimed that my posts are always negative and I never contribute to the thread. I was trying to explain to you that the fact I have 76 "likes" is odd considering I am only negative as you propose. But hey, I'm surprised too, broad sweeping judgments like yours have ALWAYS been correct in the past, lol.

    P.S., Have you noticed that Microsoft is addressing pretty much every issue I've been so "negative" about in Windows 8.1? Start Button, check. Boot to desktop, check. More user options, check. Better tutorials, check. You call it negative. Where I come from we call that being right.

    This quote regarding Windows 8.1 confirms everything I have been saying all along:

    Despite the endless grief I have gotten for my opinions, it is nice to be thoroughly vindicated by Microsoft themselves.

    ** P.S., The good news is that if people like The Verge which savaged the original Windows 8 come out in favor of Windows 8.1 that will do a lot to achieve broad acceptance in the marketplace. The main thing W8 has been missing from the start is positive buzz. If W8.1 can get some good "movie reviews" going maybe more people will buy a ticket.

    I think his point was you are too negative which you are 99% of the time. I would go as far to say that if there was a dislike button. You would have a huge majority of them.:wink:
    The only thing ms is doing is putting a big pacifier in the mouths of babies.

    You and Microsoft have a lot in common. You both view the users as "babies" who must be pacified because they "just don't get it". Does it ever occur to you that YOU don't get it assuming that "it" is what the public wants?

    You still refer to my commentary as being "negative" while I could easily refer to yours as being "blind fanboyism". Since Microsoft is now implementing the vast majority of the changes I "complained" about, rather than being "negative" I have been the voice of reason.
