    Do the Americans realise the connotations for the name Metro on this side of the pond? Not the most positive eh?!!

    I think it is fast. I can see that when I boot the system from a USB stick or a USB attached HDD. But from the SSD the difference is small.

    Are you kidding? Everybody in the US knows that the Metro is fast, clean, efficient, well-run, and cheap. Sort of like the American bureaucracy.

    How does the other side of the pond view metro design? I've read that the Nokia Lumia 800 running Windows Phone 7 with Mango update has been doing well there.

    I don't get it. I have used the Paris Metro for many years to go to and from work. Never thought of it in negative terms. It is extremely handy to get from A to B.

    I'm on the other side of your world guys..
    What metro(s) are you implying actually?

    We have here metromini, a small city commuter with reckless driver which statistically kill many people and passengers each year.

    Do you realize that this is the FIRST Windows 8 joke? All the others are warmed-over jokes from previous editions.

    I'm sure there are quite a few jokes to be had with Metrosexual assuming anyone wishes to go there
