Personally, I don't like Metro. Nothing against touch screens, I use smart phones and tablets, but my reasons for not liking Metro:

  1. The Metro interface is (IMHO) not good on a mouse/keyboard interface
  2. The Metro presentation of apps makes poor use of large screen space with fine-resolution pointing devices
  3. Having two different UIs for Windows is unnecessary and undesirable

I've used it extensively - I have Windows 8 on one of my two main machines

Prime example of anal retention! Harping on about one feature which you can easily ignore by setting a direct boot to the desktop. On and on about one feature...!

In case you haven't noticed, this entire thread is about "that one feature".   Nobody argues that one you bypass that 'feature'   (which by the way, offers no obvious way of doing so, especially for non-tech savvy user), the rest of the OS is darn good.  Which is a shame, really.
