Scary and unbelievable
Hmm, while you're at it, can you:
- Put the Aero and Windows Classic interfaces back into Windows as options
- Put the Start Menu back in as an option
- Put colors back into the UIs of your dev tools and server management applications
- Reverse your decision on the TechNet Subscription cancellation
Basically, if you could just undo everything you decided in the past 4 years or so, I'd appreciate it.
I guess Microsoft figured out it was a matter of time before someone started seeding a botnet-controlled or virus-infected version of the OS, and that they should just release it rather than have a bigger problem on their hands. Overall, I'm glad they made a few incremental changes with 8.1, but I'm hoping 8.2 is just Windows 7 with all the improved under-the-GUI stuff. Given the 180s Microsoft has been doing lately, I'm not going to be shocked if it is.
