I don't care about how long MS will support W7 if in 3 years you will be practicaly forced to install Metro OS to connect to the world, social medias, news, video, e-mail whatever. I hope that won't happen thought. Poeple are not crazy.

No. Total, stubborn, narrow-minded, obssessed opposition to modify three lines of codes to make Metro Start Screen optionable is NOT by any stretch of the imagination understandable. Sorry.

I'll bet you money it won't survive the winter 2012 (I mean on normal computers).
