Windows 8 is so very shitty.
One of the worst aspects of Windows 8 for power users is that the product’s very name has become a misnomer. "Windows" no longer supports multiple windows on the screen. Win8 does have an option to temporarily show a second area in a small part of the screen, but none of our test users were able to make this work. Also, the main UI restricts users to a single window, so the product ought to be renamed "Microsoft Window."
That reads like an Onion article, but alas what is written there is true.
Windows 8 isn’t even good enough for me to use recreationally, much less for getting any work done.
