Windows vs. Tiles

  • the best Windows ever? - hollow promises!
  • spyware and adware with mobile specific UI/UX instead of the premium-quality desktop OS
  • deficient "UWP" mobile apps instead of the full-featured WPF .NET Win32 API programs
  • pushing desktop users back into the 20th century
    • deteriorated visual navigation
    • proper window modality lost, currently activated dialog is hidden behind another window frequently
    • trusted private environment removed
    • ruined Start menu functionality
    • ugly flat Retro design
    • severely limited user options
Windows Tiles 8 / 8.1 / 10 (8.2)
