Windows 8.1 Update 1: Returning to the Cardinal Sin of Windows

Paul Thurott on his SuperSite for Windows:

So what does Update 1 add to the mix? This time around, Microsoft has committed what I consider to be the cardinal sin of Windows: It’s a return to that age-old issue where Windows simply grew, spaghetti-like, to accommodate every silly possible need of the system’s too diverse user group. Now, there are multiple ways to do different things in Metro, too. These previously consistent environment—like it or loathe it—has finally been put under the committee’s knife.

This is a great piece. Paul really nailed what’s wrong with Windows today.
