The only thing they forgot to think about is multimonitor configurations where mouse doesn't stop.
Don't like "metro" on desktop. Have Win8 but using it only in "desktop" mode, not "metro".
Still prefer to see icons, desktop wallpapers and multiple WINDOWS in same time.
Sorry, MS, but your "metro" sucks on desktops. Too simplistic for professional users.
I agree completely, "metro" is kinda great for mobile devices, but awfull for bigscreen devices..
Also there is esthetics which shows it's nice face, MS talks about content over chrome, and have a very dull visual look (you say actually that you should use 1 color background and 1 color foreground (icon/text)), but we all know the big concrete flats which is fact content over chrome (people can live in it (content) and all concrete (no chrome), but we also know that people don't like to live in those buildings and rather live in more fancy (chrome) looking houses.
To me as a user the change that was given to something like skydrive made everything look more ugly, bigger (I see less information as before) and isn't more intuitive than the previous version, and let's not get started on the 'contacts' list of outlook.com, i can even find less information as before.. So how's that with your so called content over chrome religion..
Also with everything really looking the same, I personally don't see the difference anymore between a lot of apps and even confuses me more as before.. All demo's I see are from small apps which only show a little bit of information, but never really fully fledged applications which have both a lot of content to consume and enter/process..
Also the filosofie is, use every pixel for content, but with "metro" it seems that it's using every pixel for spacing not content, too much 'white'space which could have filled with important content, but due to 'having to follow the MS rules' your stuck with large fonts to show the info.. Instead of having to scroll vertical, we now have to scroll horizontally..
To me all this "metro" style is all BS as everything is already possible with current windows/macosx/android etc. and never has been any different. And as said, "metro" has it's base as "touch" which ofcourse is not something we are sitting in our offices behind big screens and not use touch devices (which will become another RSI-nightmare), typing on real keyboards is still much better as typing on a touchscreen..
