You literally do need to right click to do more.

    I agree with you. Once you learn it, it's like riding a bicycle. I call it unintuitive though because the user is already accustomed to "doing more" in metro by tapping a tile and dragging down, or tapping the top of the screen and dragging down in IO10Metro to access tabs. So it just feels weird to tap and drag to the side -- it feels like it should make you go forward or back the way touch users do in IEMetro. In fact, I only stumbled on it because I was drying to drag open a metro app from the left side of the screen. But now that I've found it it's easy as pie.

    Actually, I recorded a little touch tutorial for metro mail yesterday to help out any other touch users out there. I need to do some editing and then I'll post it.

    OED

    adjective

    using or based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning; instinctive:
    Example :

    The controls of an airplane are intuitive. Push to nose down, pull to nose up..

    It means you automatically know what to do, even with something new.

    Win8 is the exact opposite.

    You can say Windows 8 does that, but we're going to be living in a metro world; one in which content comes first and UI chrome isn't present all the time. One must right click to do more.

    I'd not agree Win 8 was unintuitive in such a blanket way. Elements of it such as Metro are new to us and require effort to learn, but if you are a desktop user, Metro makes very, very little difference.
