Ex-Microsoft employee leads Fixing Windows 8 initiative

Posted on Tuesday, March 13 2012 @ 20:04:54 CET by

Bit Tech reports Mike Bibik, user experience designer for Amazon and erstwhile Microsoft programme manager, is so disgruntled with Windows 8 that he has found FixingWindows8.com. Bibik offers the software giant advice on how to improve Windows 8, because in his vision, the new operating system is a disaster on any device not equipped with a touchscreen.
Bibik then launches into a thorough deconstruction of Windows 8 and its Windows Phone-inspired Metro UI, detailing the key points which he claims makes the system a disaster on any device not equipped with a touchscreen interface.

Problems range from the Start Screen, which Bibik points out contains numerous shortcuts to applications which simply won't operate until you've signed up for a Microsoft Account, through the Metro UI's lack of window controls and the invisible Start Button. Bibik also rails on the lack of search functionality in the Store, which for some reason has been relegated to the Charms Menu.

'All of these issues were uncovered in my first hour of using Windows 8 Consumer Preview,' claims Bibik. 'Power users should be able to figure out how the mouse works in Windows 8. Novices and new users will be completely lost.'
