I couldn't get past his pathetic Start Menu diatribe. Certifiable MetroTard, and reminds me of one particular NeoKook actually.
The fact is that practically nobody used the heirarchy menu ("classic menu") part of the start menu. Sure, people used the front part of the start menu, but that's just a collection of fixed buttons (control panel, my documents, shutdown etc) and a random selection of your most used apps.
So I stand by my assertion: The start menu was a badly collected assortment of randomly changing crap that people didn't use because they were busy pinning the apps they wanted or using search or desktop shortcuts for the other apps. Practically nobody used the dumping ground of the heirarchy and few people used the small number of ever-shifting randomly selected apps on the front screen.
Complete garbage. What's funny is that this 'Tard is so completely repulsed by organization and structure that he continually misspells "hierarchy". It's sad though, he is so wrapped up in rationalizing his new Metro
toy that he mindlessly attacks everything that is different than what he prefers. That is a mental illness, like a form of racism or something. Hey. maybe they have an app for that.
The Start Menu was never an end in itself, it is a convenient, collapsible, unobtrusive toolbox or drawer that is there when you need it. You don't throw away toolboxes or drawers that you seldom use, especially when they manufacture false information stating they are obsolete because of phony telemetry. That is some Grade-A Incredible dopiness right there. I'm not even sure where he gets "7" items from, or "random selection" or any of his childish assertions. It is a virtual folder pooling links and namespace items and pretty much 99% of everything that exists can be obtained from there if you choose to.
But most importantly it is a constant. If you change Desktop Icons, QuickLaunch or Pin-UnPin stuff elsewhere, you always have a constant to fall back on. It comes in exceedingly handy walking someone over the phone to specific items. Remove the constants and all that is left is user customized chaos. I guess that explains why the mind of the MetroTard is so disorganized since they fail to grasp order. No wonder they gravitate to Playskool Metro
. It represents taking the Start "drawer" out of the desk and dumping the contents all over the desktop and then spreading them all out one deep and declaring it an organized program launcher. ~barf~.
I guess there are really only two kinds of people in the world now, Normal and MetroTards. In the past we could co-exist because the nature of Windows allowed us to remain normal and organized and allowed them to mess things up at will. But now Microsoft has purposefully built Windows 8
down to the lowest common denominator, MetroTards, and it is becoming clear we cannot exist in the same space. The old saying is don't argue with an idi0t because they'll drag us down to their level and win from experience
. But I have always thought to try anyway because something might rub off on them. I may have been wrong. They really appear to be irredeemable narcissistic children.
Here are some more appropriate pix for MetroTards like him addressing one of their main tactics ...
typos, updated image URLs, and again
