Forum Spotlight: Windows 8 and Fragmentation

Forum member “App Downloader” took some time to post an interesting, well-written summary of his opinions on Windows 8 after having used it since release. While he remains a huge fan of the new Metro interface, he questions whether or not it was wise for Microsoft to also tack on the traditional, Windows interface:

When I saw the brand new user interface of Windows 8 I was impressed. In fact, make it flabbergasted. It felt so futuristic, so polished, so new. I went through many websites looking at the first impressions and hands-on sessions, and I felt that Microsoft finally made something that I could use very easily.

Now, you may think that Windows 8 looks very organized, very clean, and a completely spotless operating system, but the actual problem lies in one of the things that I feel that destroys the fundamental cleanliness of all technological interfaces: fragmentation.
