    Metro style apps need minimum resolution of 1024 X 768 Why ?

    Hi all
    I'm surprised to see that metro style gui and apps will only work if your screen resolution is 764 X 1028 or greater.

    Some smaller netbooks won't meet this requirement --which is odd since W8 is obviously destined to be used on smaller devices - such as SMALL tablets and maybe on mobile phones as a competitor to Android.

Hi all Not sure if this has been posted before but running Metro UI needs a minimum resolution of 1024 X768 which IMO seems a bit absurd in view of the large number of netbooks and tablets having a slightly lower resolution like 1024 X 600 which seems to be a common size. You can "poodle...
