I just saw all I needed to see about Windows 8 12 years ago

This morning I had a meeting with a client who loves his Asus touchscreen Windows 8 laptop. He loves it. He loves scrolling and clicking by touching the screen, loves the sleek design, loves the size, he loves it.

Except when it jumps to the Windows 8 "tile" screen for seemingly no reason. I work with computers for a living, and I could not for the life of me:

  1. Figure out how to make that happen with the touchpad or why it was happening randomly or
  2. Why you would ever want it to happen.

I was so excited when Windows 8 came out that I was seriously considering buying a Surface instead of the new Macbook Pro I desperately needed. But I've seen all I need to see.
