Same. Throws away so much tradition for the sake of Metro which isn't shaping up to be all it's cracked up to be (IMO)...

The more I use Win8 and the more I see, the more I dislike it, which is sad because I was a pretty big fan of metro to begin with but eh...

Meh, I saw that the other day and I still haven't gotten used to it yet. It just looks way too static, too flat, like someone drew it up in CorelDRAW or Illustrator in 30 seconds... I understand that they don't want the "flag" anymore, they want it to look like it originally did, make it actually look like a window. I just wish they wouldn't have taken the simplicity factor so seriously.

Unbelievable.

The line drawing of a *window* which by the way looks like an add for Andersen, Pella, Jeld Wen, or some other window manufacturer, is now Trade marked ???

Pretty soon, we may not be able to write anything with the *word* windows in it ?

It is recognizable and all I care about is that the software is competent.

Is it a contest? What would windows be without a blue window of death, a few spyware indicators, and a magic 8 ball to get behind?

THIS. Not being overly concerned with design issues is one of the reasons I don't shell out extra dough for other products.

I just hope MS does get a mobile foothold. I'm tried of seeing ads for apps on Andriod and iOS only. I only use my phone to listen to the radio in the car and there isn't a good Sirius/XM for Windows as of right now.
