Has Microsoft finally realised PCs are different than tablets?

Fredric Paul | July 3, 2014
Windows 8's tile interface is fine on mobile devices, but Microsoft may have just figured out it's terrible for traditional computers.

In this case, I believe, that means forking Windows to create an operating system (or several) that's optimized for the different things that people do with smartphones, tablets, and traditional computers.  

I, for one, won't consider using Windows 8 on a traditional desktop until that happens (I do sometimes use a Surface 2, and I've long been a happy Windows 7 user). And judging by the latest operating system usage figures, I'm not alone.
