Sorry, I should clarify that I'm talking about desktop systems here. I
have no idea how good those UIs are on actual tablets; my beef with
them is that putting a tablet UI on a desktop is just as much a bad
idea as putting a desktop UI on a tablet. When I have a 1920x1080
display on a screen that's about a meter wide, running a single
application is seldom what I want to do.
