Comment: Start Menu (Score 4, Insightful) 240

If only they put the original start menu structure back in one of those modes, maybe an 'enterprise' or 'user with 20years experience on windows' option. Still need to install 'Classic Start Menu' to make things sane. Users I deal with will never switch to metro, they love using Desktop to dump all those files they're working with, at least can boot into Desktop mode now to save metro flashing up. but.. STILL need the start menu. Have the Metro 'view' slide into place when you select that menu, but for all that's workable, PUT BACK THE START MENU.

it looks terrible, doesn't have apps, compatibility (fixable), other company support, dev loving. I get that some beancounter is probably saying "hey, we pay Google 5 bucks per phone, if we didn't have to pay that, we'd make more profit", but breaking everything isn't the solution. And how they ignore their users for years over touchwiz, I'm not too trusting that Tizen will give users what they want. It /can/ be fixed a bit, by making a Cyanogenmod like version of it, release the base code somewhere, like ASOP for Android, and it would get some love from the dev community I'm sure. But will/can samsung set it free? From past experience they want everything kept very close.

Usually jump all over new ROM's, new OS updates, all part of the fun. Though... I'm still not sure about this new Material look to everything. Running on a AMOLED, and rarely go outside, I prefer the black background, holo look. So... the 'xp feel' is spot on, I'm in a good place, everything works, and it looks good.

Wife's family would read this and laugh before heading out to the club. Large Cuban family, the 'baby' of her aunts and uncle is 81 and there's no holding any of them back. I think the coffee they knock back in ludicrous strengths is what Ponce De Leon was searching for all that time.

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
