Re: Then why use the Metro...

The problem comes when you have multiple and wholly different UIs in the same context, which is what we have with W8, as we have to switch back and forth between desktop and Metro. That really is the worst of all worlds.

I find that gives me added flexibility. I normally stay in the desktop view and run Win 8 just like I do Win 7 with trackball and keyboard.

Added: Actually I felt somewhat the same as you until I learned how to set up Win 8 just like I have Win 7 setup. Only occasionally need to switch to Metro so it is not a problem for me.
