    You know the one.

    Go into a public lavatory and at first you can barely tolerate the stench.

    After a few minutes - your nose accustoms and it isn't so bad.

    Stay there longer and you can't smell it at all.

    That does not mean it is a nice smelling environment.
    So why are you posting it again. We all know you hate Windows 8 so give it a rest.

    Fish, I have a genuine question to ask. If you don't like Windows 8, don't care for it or apps, don't even want to associate with it then why do you insist on being on a forum dedicated for Windows 8 only to spew your dislike about something that chances are, you're not even using?

    Geez, get a hobby, go outside, pet a little kitty.....

    I simply asked you to clarify which of the other two posters is a troll and which is a hater, two terms you love to throw around when people express opinions you don't like. If you don't want to answer a simple question like this, I hope you realize you're free to take your own advice and not reply to me. There's no need to respond with still more thinly veiled insults. FTR, I've never wondered even once why you're such a fanboy; it's just not important to me.

    By the way, when I used the Dev Preview, I never really used Metro, so it really doesn't affect me.

    Metro to me is not bad, it's not good, it's just completely in the background, under my radar. It isn't smelly because it's not noticeable AT ALL. I simply do not even realize it's there unless I think about it. I long ago stopped using the Start Menu in Win7. Same thing. It was always there but I just never used it or noticed it.
    Mind you, I COULD use Metro just like I could have used the Start Menu. Its just a option of the operating system that I ignore, like the resource monitor.
    Win8 Desktop gives me all the functionality that I used in Win7, is more responsive, and has all the stuff I am used to. Good enough. I will be installing the 1st shipping product without hesitation now. Metro is no longer any sort of concern to me.

    You're right ... what metro?
