My take: This is Microsoft's desperate attempt at staying relevant in the smart phone/tablet market. They are basically sacrificing the conservative desktop market in favor of some hybrid desktop/smart phone GUI.

And I insist: This is just the developer preview, not even the beta. For God's sake, why are you all being such crying babies? It CAN be disabled. Why even worry?

Instead of a Start Menu, you basically get the Home button on an iPhone.

It starts in Metro,you click one button and it dissappears and you have the normal desktop.I've been using it for months now,I should know.It took me literally about 15 min to get used to it.

Disabled the metro crap, but I still have to flick the lock screen off my desktop to login like my phone.... with the mouse. It starts near instantly on a fresh VM, which is nice, but I don't really see the point of changing.

It's still sometime away from the Release Candidate which may appear in Calendar Q2 2012. Perhaps it will follow the same release schedule and RTM roadmap as Windows 7 indicating a Fall release perhaps in October 2012 as well.

metro looks like something from windows 98 era.

also not very good for desktops.

way too big icons and it's meant for touch.

yuck.,

I tried it in vmware player for 6 house and I want those 6 hours back. vm was deleted after that.

Why is everyone acting insanely stupid about the Metro UI?

Grow up, people, stop acting like idiots. You can disable it if you want to; Hell, it'll probably come disabled. Stop throwing around blatant hate because you're bored and want to fit in.

Windows 8 is definitely an improvement over Windows 7. If not for at least dual-booting, I'll be picking up a copy for a machine or two at release.

metro UI is a problem becuase it will set a new standard of babying down UIs and taking user control away. simple. this is why we hate it.

the metro UI is design for consumption rather then creation.

People like complaining for no good reason, reading is becoming something of a rare capability, and common sense is no longer common.

Of course it can be disabled, it's been said repeatedly... I'm sure there's a worker at a cubicle within Microsoft pulling his / her hair out on how people are overreacting to this.

Any who, can't wait for Windows 8 to arrive on MSDNAA wheee.gif
