I have little love for the new generation of desktop
interfaces, such as Windows 8 Metro. They use a smartphone/tablet
like metaphor in which each application takes up the entire screen.
So, why did I buy all these 20-inch and larger displays? Google, in
the latest developer release of its Linux and cloud-based Chrome
OS, has reversed this trend. This developer Chrome OS update adds a
taskbar and support for multiple windows to its light-weight,
desktop operating system.
