    How old are you and what do you think of Metro?

    I read a couple weeks ago an article about Windows 8 I think in Tom's Hardware. It was pretty interesting because it spoke of how people under the age of 30 will like the Metro interface better than older people.

    So to try to prove that, how old are you and do you like Metro?

    I'm 22 years old and I find the Metro interface quite interesting and better than the Start Menu in finding a junkton of programs easily.

    I am very old (more than 3 times your age). I think Metro is very good - for a tablet, but not for a PC operated with keyboard and mouse.

    I'm just shy of 60 and find Metro interesting. I can't say it's better or worse than the Start menu interface but it certainly is different.

    18, and I love having Metro on my touchscreen laptop. With Windows 7, I hardly used the touchscreen because... well, Windows 7's UI sucks for touchscreen at 1920x1080 resolution as everything is too small. The Metro UI works very well for this though.

    13 (14 this month), and Metro is alright. I suppose I'm more used to the Start Menu having used it since I started fiddling with computers, so I'm rather biased toward it.
