Yeah I think Microsoft is kind of desperate to show that they have bright fresh ideas. So they force people to adapt to the new style as if it was something "fresh and new".
I think Windows 9 will still push it out, but perhaps will be more lenient in others.
Exactly. I can't stand Windows 8 for that reason... the whole forcing people to use Metro. Not everyone has a touch screen computer Microsoft
. They need to iron it out in that regard.
Except as already been pointed out... they don't. I use windows 8, I saw the metro screen for about 30 second when I first set it up, I've never been back and it's just like an enchanced w7.
