    You're imagining there are other viable choices, Ivan.

    MS has yet to see that happen, Ivan, and I doubt the direction MS is taking with Win8 will create such outrage as the examples you cite.

    Remember, we are looking at a Developer Preview, not even a pre-beta or a beta.

    I like it, so far. I look forward to dumping my iPhone and having a similar UI experience across devices. I think MS is headed in the right direction, personally.

    I am a bit dismayed, however, at the reduction in customization from the DP to the pre-beta as reported here:

    With the DP, and a little help, I was able to do this:

    I still think they should release the same windows but ask the user if they want Metro or the default Win7-like UI OR stick Metro for the mobile devices and Win7-like UI for laptops & desktops. Metro just doesn't look good in file management. And, with the number of software I have installed, it will be tile-hell for me. :\
