Re: "I rather like the Windows 8 interface on a fondle slab"
I believe thats what I said. I like it on a fondle slab but hate it on a mouse driven laptop or desktop.
You need a choice. Why not have full fondle interface on a tablet and a start menu with Metro apps in floating windows for laptops/desktops. How about a check box to switch between the two modes ? Not a big deal for MS to provide that. Maybe they'll come to their senses and do that in Windows 9.
