Accessibility in Windows 8

    General discussion

  • Windows 8 deliver best booting Time, it has best ecosystem for app development. But it has some accessibility problems: like "Shutting Down". Microsoft can make it more closer to user by putting it in the hover menu of start button: as a sibling of "Setting".

    I am very frustrated with the closing of Apps in Metro. The way Windows is using may be good. But Microsoft should provide an explicit way of closing Apps.

    You can also provide a switching system for both Environment: For desktop and Metro(Tablet). In desktop you can use Windows7's Start Menu & in Metro you can use Windows 8 start menu. It may provide better accessibility.
