Even though the release date of Windows 8 has not yet been announced, it is expected to be coming in early next year. We all are pretty excited about the release of Windows 8, but we are also afraid that Windows 8 might become another Vista. Based on the consumer preview release of Windows 8 we found a few flaws in this new operating system and to prevent Windows 8 from becoming another Vista, Microsoft needs to take this seriously. Here is the list of items Microsoft needs to change in Windows 8:
Let desktop be desktop:
The Metro interface is very good and makes a wonderful way to interact. But that goes only for Windows Smartphone and Tablets. Expecting a mouse-based laptop or desktop to perform the same way a touchscreen interaction take place is not fair. Microsoft can at least have the courtesy to allow the users to select the mode from Metro and default.
Grouping of tiles:
We have seen that with each new addition of software, the tiles keep increasing. A folder based group tiles would be really comfortable. As in all the Microsoft office programs comes on under one tile called Office 2012. This simple change may be very generous.
Limiting the tiles:
By limiting the tiles to only one page will make it lot easier to navigate and reach to the most frequently used applications. Windows can give us options to increase the page number if we like to. This modification will bring simplicity in Windows 8, which is very essential.
We miss the Start button:
In the preview we saw the vanished start button. Yes, you need to go to left lower corner of the screen to find a thumbnail and get started. Microsoft don’t have to change the most comfortable and easy buttons to bring a change. People have been habitual of start button since really long time and we all love it. Windows 8 need not change it just for the sake of changing.
Though chances are very few that Microsoft will bring any major changes in the Windows 8 but we wish the above changes would be taken care of by Microsoft.
