While he's mostly a fan of Windows 8, expert Gary Olsen has found some issues that might delay the migration to Microsoft's latest operating system. His list includes (among others):
  1. Migration: Splitting the enterprise between the tablet and PC
  2. Getting to the desktop
  3. The missing Start button -- and desktop, for that matter
  4. Searching for Search
  5. Metro-compatible applications.
What do you think? What's the one feature that you find most disappointing on Windows 8?

    Where is "My Computer" and I want my "Control Panel" back.

    Numbers 2, 3, and 5 bother me the most! Metro apps hide menu options and that bothers me. I look forward to 8.1 so I can bypass the Metro live tiles all together. Metro apps on my Win8 machine seem to run very slowly - that annoys me. Compatibility of existing programs is an issue too.

    Some people still want the "PC Feel", a start button, desktop, control panel and the like. They like to have the control of what runs on their PC without having to jump through hoops to do it. For people who are use to using smartphones and tablets the learning curve is a lot smaller. They probably love it. Microsoft needs to address both customer bases and try not to overwhelm the older pc user base. Old habits die hard.
