Microsoft is going to make you love Windows 8's new user interface. It's going to force you to boot into it, according to ZDNet.
Citing Rafael Rivera, Windows enthusiast and co-author of "Windows 8 Secrets" Rafael Rivera, ZDnet says that Windows 8 users will not be presented with the option to boot into the traditional desktop mode, according to ZDNet.
Which means, users will have to boot into the tiles, and head to desktop mode from there if they must. Microsoft is serious about making their tiles a norm.
The desktop booting ban has yet to be confirmed or denied by Microsoft. [The Next Web via ZDNet]
