    I like WP8/7's UI

    I have no problems with the Metro UI on phones too (where it belongs, frankly), just my theory why it isn't selling as much. Actually, I wish it well. If WP7 would have been a runaway success, maybe MS wouldn't do PR stunts like Win8.

    I am puzzled on how it doesn't seem to get the buzz Apple does for being shiny.

    Well it got design awards, problem is, no one cares much about those though. And as I said many times here, Apple is Gucci. It's not rational to compete on shiny with Gucci.

    Yep. Here's an example of what they are thinking businesses will do.

    So, they're deploying something like a enhanced, custom Media Center. Sure, Metro can work for that, since the MC itself was Metro-like already.

    I fail to see how that edge-case is an definitive example of something though.
