    Was a lot of posts and walls of text, but I don't think anyone mentioned that there is a Metro taskbar. On a tablet, you swipe it in from the left, on the desktop you put your mouse in the top left corner, then move it down a bit and it will show [as many] metro apps running [as it can fit in the vertical space]...

    No disrespect but I fixed a small discrepancy for ya. When you add in the idea that Windows Store apps are designed not needing to be closed all of a sudden this makes the Windows Store app taskbar pretty useless. Do you close the apps to make the taskbar useful or do you leave the apps open because you are not supposed to have to close them?
