@vesuvius: BUT VISUAL STUDIO ISN'T A METRO STYLED APP. MICROSOFT STATING IT IS DOESN'T MAKE IT SO. IF IT WERE METRO STYLED IT WOULD LOOK LIKE THE ZUNE CLIENT. I WONDER WHAT OFFICE 15 IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE? SAME ALL CAPS MENU? I HOPE NOT. IN ANY CASE I HOPE MICROSOFT IS MAKE A DESIGN DESCISION ACROSS THE BOARD. THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE DESKTOP APPS IN W8 AS WELL. ALL CAPS IN THE EXPLORER, THE LOSS OF THE RIBBON, ETC.

IF I WERE DISHONEST I'D SAY I LOOK FORWARD TO METRO-STYLING MY CODE TOO; TYPING IN MIXED-CASE IS SO OVERRATED AS PROVEN BY THIS SPECTACULAR POST. IT ALSO AVOIDS UNNECESSARY SPELL CHECKING. GREAT IDEA MICROSOFT!
