Had enough Windows 8 hate [2] to digest? Too bad, ’cause here comes more.

Jakob Nielsen, a user interface expert at Nielsen Norman Group who has been working with user interfaces for years, conducted a test with people on Windows 8 [3]. What did he find? He found people have “a lot of struggles” with Windows 8, especially when switching between Windows 8′s traditional desktop mode and the Start screen. This lead Nielsen to proclaim:

I just think when it comes to the traditional customer base, the office computer user, they’re essentially being thrown under the bus.

Nielsen feels Windows 8 is fine for tablets but not traditional desktops and laptop. You know, something dotTech has said a few times now. Go figure.
