Blue Makes Windows 8 More Like Windows 7‏

Wednesday, 17 April 2013

That's judging by the emergence of settings to toggle off Windows 8-style multitasking and the re-emergence of reports that you'll be able to boot straight into the Desktop. These additions would've made more sense in the initial release of Windows 8, but to introduce them in its first major update, probably a year later, makes me think of them as (belated) concessions. Windows 8's problem wasn't that it wasn't Windows 7. Moves like this however suggest Microsoft may think it was.

Update: Microsoft's Plan B for Windows 8 is Windows 7.
