The beautiful Windows 8 double starter

Have you ever found something really badly designed? Something which obscurity of its functions makes it hard to understand its use? Something almost unusable to a point it would drive you mad using it too often? Perhaps, a fool's design? Then you have come to the right place. Post your findings here and help making the world a saner place.

Fool's design.

If you have a Remote Desktop window opened up, try hitting the start screen in it.

Double start screen, double the fun!

A fool's solution: Accept and ignore the foolish design and do not use Remote Desktop unless it is in fullscreen.

Haven't done this ( and the picture is too small ).

What is it that "contextfree" is trying to say here? ( He links over to Channel9 btw )

I find it hard to believe that he implies that little start screen sub-window is professional and makes any kind of sense.

What he basically suggests is to not use a windowed Remote Desktop session and always go to full screen when connecting to a Remote Desktop session. Completely ludicrous.

You would think that they would have fixed this in Windows 8.x... but nooo.
