For many years I've dabbled and have used Linux on a daily basis but as of Windows 8 I feel like the desktop is being shoved to a corner and beaten to a pulp. while OS X still feels like a desktop OS and a good one at that and I do use it quite often for objective-c and working on OSX apps but it's not my main OS well not anymore anyway.
What I like is your not prone to one environment or one way of doing things, now I like the terminal but I also like to click around and there's a distro for that.
What do you guys think, and why is Ms pushing off the desktop? Why didn't they cleaning integrate features from Windows Phone to Windows instead of creating essentially 2 different environments?..
