MS is looking to get rid of start menu hacks for windows 8
Winstep Xtreme's Start Menu is provided by the NextSTART application and does not depend on Windows Start Menu code, so this for Winstep is actually good news. Microsoft can do nothing to prevent 3rd party developers from *emulating* the behavior of the 'old' Windows Start Menu.
Anyway, is it just me who feels such a move by Microsoft is highly disrespectful to every Windows user? 'My way or the highway'. They're really trying to force that Metro $!"@* down our throats.
Well, mommy, I got news for you: I'm not a kid anymore, so you can't force me to eat those veggies unless *I* want to.
Microsoft, what are we going to do with you? I fully intend to develop games primarily on PC, not Mac or another OS, when I receive my Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems from DeVry University by end of this year, but Microsoft's insanity is scaring me so much that I am having second thoughts.
You should be scared. Microsoft has already shown developers that they couldn't care less about them and what they think (classic VB and now Silverlight), and now they are doing it again to developers *and* users alike.
Insanity. That's a good word to describe what is happening, IMO.
