Metro apps are just a new way of doing things for the post-app world we live in.
Post-app world? This talk of post-this and post-that is ridiculous. All these devices are still personal computers of different sizes. They are designed with the same principles. But now we have a post-app world?? What does that even mean?
people do actually want iPhone/Android apps on a PC
We've had that for years. They are called widgets and gadgets. Simple, single focus apps designed to consume content. They were never popular on PC's before, but now that they run full screen they will become popular? I thought we all decided long ago that full screen apps didn't make sense for productivity on a PC.
