Suggestion: Two separate window managers (shells) for PCs and Tablets

    General discussion

  • Dear Mr. Sinkofsky, Dear Windows 8 Team

    After working with w8 preview, I seriously worry that Metro GUI for the whole Windows (or parts of it) might mean Microsoft is going to gain 50-100 million tablets at the cost of 1 billion PCs and laptops. It is even possible that neither of markets accept it that good.

    I would continue current windows but provide 2 totally separate shells (like Linux, where you can select your window manager at login). One window manager would do PCs, the other would do tablets.

    I am seriously worried since a few days ago and I smell WinME again. Please give my suggestion 5 minutes of thought.
