re: Windows 8.1: 10 Surprise Benefits
> I just don't understand all the Win8 hate
I'm always happy to educate the ignorant!
Let's give Win8 a break for once and pretend you're using it on a touch screen, since it's unusable with the mouse.
Win8 still sux.
I got a touch screen as a novelty. It's always 8" in front of me, so close that I wear reading glasses. That way, I get the effect of a 12' screen a few feet away (which really works, BTW; try it!)
Even though my screen is probably easier for me to reach than for anyone else, I STILL never use touch because it's about 4,096 times easier to slightly move the mouse (that my hand is already on), and click the button (that my finger is already on).
I soon grew physically tired of reaching out to the screen every time I had to click an "OK" button. The only other time I ever stare at my computer screen and move my hand that much is when I watch certain movie clips.
