Think back to the time you first saw Windows 8 on a desktop or a laptop. You probably marveled: Wow, this looks different. Better be worth such a big change!
Then you started mousing around and began wondering exactly what Microsoft was smoking when it dropped a touch interface on top of a desktop operating system.
With the first glimpse of Windows 10 last week, Microsoft has clearly come to its senses and followed InfoWorld's brilliant plan, bringing back a real Start menu and eliminating the tiled "Metro" UI for desktop users. That change was core to InfoWorld's Windows Red proposal, where we suggested that Microsoft split Windows 8 into a desktop version and a mobile version.
