I ended up downloading the consumer preview I had been keeping a open mind about it. The short time I played with it in the past it seem to run far faster then my Windows 7 setup. After spending a day with it I feel like beating my head into a wall. Metro has to be the worse idea in the history of computers. Metro would not be so bad if it was a little easier to Close Programs Desktop and Metro programs where interchangeable (what I am seeing now there all separate settings one does not carrier over to the other). Seems like everything is default to use some kinda of metro app that is hard to close and takes up the entire screen (no alt tabbing). I have no idea what they where thinking but its painfully obvious this was not designed for desktops. I really hope they have everything worked out before the October release or we have the second coming of Windows ME on our hands.
