Metro Commercial 2:
Programmers on a submarine - metro ui on all the screens showing what sub is doing - horns go off - "baaap baaap baaaap"
captain! we have a problem with the main computer!
What is the problem! (yelling - water spurting)
sir - it appears - that we've - (noise) made it too easy sir
captain (noise) what!? did you say
Crew Yes sir too easy - we need to make it less easy sir!
Captain - HOW! water / noise)
Crew member 1: well first - we need to let our long time users know that there is still a desktop. still a c drive. that almost everything ever released for windows still works and works better and faster.. ( most noise stops - water still spurting)
captain - fair enough - but we're sinking man what else can we do!?
crew man 2 - well sir all the things people hated and turned off - they work now - from phones to tablets to desktops - one ui that knows what you did on the others! and travels with you!
captain - well why didnt you say so! (grabs mike) all hands full stop on making things easy. We've made them too easy - i repeat - too easy
Loud noise - camera shakes...
captain - whats happend
crew 1 - it appears we've ... crashed sir
captain (to camera) the party my friend - JUST the party
(zoom out to sub on lawn of mansion on lake big party/win-ding)
voice over - windows Metro - not the same ol same ol
err... sorry - i hate thinking about steveb...
so - to end on a positive note... what do you think 9ers?
- is it even possible to make metro (the graphics and style + the online parts) work on other platforms?
- is the idea workable? (all the stuff we never used - turned off - works now - and its great!)
They say people dancing on tables didnt work. so what would work? i was blown away when i actually USED all the things ive always turned OFF
- everyone already has iphones and android - offer free metro experience -that takes over the UI's of said devices
- and -
- Windows modern UI or whatever god awful name that was - forget it - pay the piper for metro. buy the stupid little company for the name if you have too
Metro - free - with office - 6 months - see your iphone properly!
*edit : oh sh&^ idiot boy just bought a phone company
he will want to keep winphone exclusive to his controlled platform - not set it free!
Hello long time windows user. Thank you for your patronage.
You know all that stuff - that we've been putting into Windows - that you turn off, dont use, ignore, collapse, hide, uninstall?
...to put it back like the old WIndows you were used too?
Well - guess what - if you actually USE all that "dumb" stuff now - it finally works.
The win8 MS account log in - you hated that right? ignored it? GO BACK AND DO IT AGAIN. it actually works.
Outlook and PST files and lost contacts and lost auto-completes on re-install - say goodbye to them all - use Outlook.com (unLIMITED storage - no more 5 gig pst files USB files systems cant handle) - oh and it is free.
My Documents (now Documents) The folder you loved to hate "im not using that dumb folder on c drive - ill change it to my own folder (now works with skydrive) Your desktop wallpaper etc distributed.
so basically - an ad about - all those things - we ALL hated you added - that we turn off when installing - the ad is TURN IT ON
they work now!
seamless. and bring back name metro
MIcrosoft METRO - all devices - turn it on
