    Are you happy with Metro being on Windows 8 Desktop?

    Doing a poll to see who's happy with Metro on Windows 8 Desktops.

    Some people aren't, some are. Just want to see the numbers.

    I don't care for it. On a tablet or touchscreen it would probably be fine, on my desktop or laptop, it's simply a nuisance.

    Yes. Totally useful. Easy to use. Makes navigation and management of installations a breeze.

    I don't care either way. Everything works the way I want it to, so then it would be yes.

    I think it's just fine. Works quickly, responds quickly, and works with keyboards, mice, or with touch input. Not only that, it's really configurable that the old UI model wouldn't allow to have so much. There is more gain than loss to me.

    I only use a few of the Metro Apps like Weather and Newegg. I do like the new Start Screen better then the old Start Menu. Got it organized like I want and does the job for me.

    I don't understand the purpose of Metro at all.
    Why didn't they just make it a desktop integration/modification that displays fancy icons and widgets? What's the point of running it on TOP of an existing desktop and applications?
    It's clear that its solely aimed at mobile devices and serves little purpose in a desktop environment.

    If it was possible to completely disable and remove it, I would.

    Windows 8, maybe?

    I dig it. Works for me, unobtrusive to my experience.
