I'm not afraid of change nor am I afraid to learn new things; however, when change actually reduces the usefulness of a tool, it is not something that I support. I see nothing in the Metro interface that adds quality to my Windows experience. The start screen and search functions are nothing new except that the start screen was called the desktop or task bar.
My complaint about Apple and the the Mac has been that its user Interface reduces everyone to the level of a novice. Windows has always allowed knowledgeable users to accomplish their tasks efficiently while providing a more visual method for those who need to be guided though a task step by step. The Metro interface is now forcing the limitations of smart phone users onto those of us using it on a desktop computer, a laptop, or even a tablet. It was a poor design decision.
