Good point about every app opening full screen. When I first read about beta version of IE10, that's what the Microsoft blurbs on it were bragging about. The first full screen browser. Why would I want that? So I hesitated. It wasn't until I read a comment that you might not even notice the difference, with IE10 on a PC, that I downloaded and installed it. Still can't figure out why this nonsense about being a full screen browser. All browsers can be full screen, if you click the full screen icon. Big whoop. Perhaps most objections on Win8 fall in the same category. They are mostly based on poor advertizing and marketing decisions by Microsoft. Not on the actual product.

Windows 8 sucks. They need to add a windows 7 mode. Easy solution. Why so stubborn Microsoft? I don't want every app to open full screen, that's annoying. I miss my start button. You blew it big time MS.

I've been using windows 7 for a few months and hate it. I would be fine with going back to window xp. I know that I would hate windows 8, so I have no motivation to even try it.

I have used windows 8. I just don't see any productivity improvement from touch on a 15in screen laptop. Sure I have and can learn the new OS. But what is the point of paying MS for new software and learning new software for no meaningful benefit. That I this is the crux of the problem

Performance so poor ? That's a joke. Show your benchmarks. I have been using windows 7 for 2 years and windows 8 is way faster.

Well ok, they decide to put the metro ui firs. Press Windows_key + d and you are in desktop mode. You can run whatever you want there. Even Norton commander if you are old school. What's wrong with that ? Maybe it's just that people can'spend one minute to figure it out and Microsoft should have added a banner at the top of the start screen: PRESS WINDOWS_KEY + D to go to desktop mode, PRESS WINDOWS_KEY to go back to start screen :)

You switch from start menu to desktop mode ( with taskbar but no start menu ) by pressing windows_key + d. You go back to your start screen with windows key alone. How shorter can it be ?

Ok I need to understand. What do you ate about it ? I am NOT a Microsoft addict. I also use Linux, FreeBSD and others but I can't understand what's wrong with windows 8. I personally installed it yesterday and love it.

Are you using windows 8 or just relying on all the negative bs posted by people not using it ?

why do you want to avoid the start screen ? I customized mine, added sections.. You can pin any app to the start screen.. New installed app just show up on the right... Pleas explain

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
