said by Michail:I dunno what to say, the functionality/productive use went UP when I upgraded to 8 from 7.
I've noticed a trend over the years in many of Microsoft's products to trend towards simplicity and simpler designs. However, I feel much of it is coming at the expense of functionality.
While I am a firm believer in design simplicity I don't think MS is keeping functionality and "power uses" in mind. This is an area where I think apple is doing a little better. The have design simplicity but don't always sacrifice the power user in the process. Of course, they have had a longer time focusing on design.
I get that technology is changing. I like the overall trend to fit technology to humans as I myself don't believe in the RTFM approach.
