Ok, I’m jumping around a little, but I think this is important.
If MS wants me, and possibly others to continue using Windows in the future, here is what they need to do:
1. Bring back the START button and the Win7 shortcuts/keys
2. Keep the Desktop
3. Allow me to choose in which mode to start the system, tablet (modern ui) or desktop
4. If I start in Desktop mode, allow me to run the tablet mode apps in a window on the Desktop, like any other application window
