Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that the "Metro" compatible version of Firefox has been delayed until late January of 2014. Discuss here if you think Windows 8 would be doing better if more Metro apps were available, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

There isn't much that can save Windows 8. It's basically a child of Vista not to mention it's grandfather, Windows ME.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

I think it is only really the Win 8 interface issue that upsets some traditional PC users. It is a fast and reliable system (unlike ME and Vista). There are freebies to bring back the old fashioned start menu if you wish.

I tend to use Metro for things I want to immediately access (all on the left for speed) but do spend a lot of time on the desktop. Having been given a blank canvas on the desktop, well almost, I have put folders containing groups of shortcuts on there instead. I find this better than bringing back the traditional start menu and, as I did it myself, it is exactly to my liking. Had no trouble finding desktop versions of every program I needed. I've ended up with less desktop icons than any previous system too - just a matter of folders, files and shortcuts so nothing new to learn there.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but I still believe that a computer should be fashioned by the user so that it is all things to all people, not something you unpack which remains identical to everyone else's. Sometimes this means battling with MS ideas, which seem hell bent on making us all into nodding ducks. In my own tailored form I find Win 8 to be the best thing since sliced bread.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
