Goodie for you.. Greytech .. you've spent time getting things the way you want them or need them ..
Many of us don't have time to do this for our users, nor having to switch from the desktops they are already use to, over to the Metro UI ... additionally as someone else posted.. the live tile bull.. our employees are not marketing are not *supposed* to be socially connected for the 9 hours they have on site .. they are to be working, with the exception of an EMPLOYER PROVIDED XMPP (Pidgin) connection which are *ONLY* setup for employee to employee communication .. and the the use then is more than just "update happy tiles" they are conversational based messages.
Just like others have said.. our shop (under 250 employees) are multitasking all day with 10 or more windowed apps (ie, ff, chrome, having additional windows each) not one employee have I ever seen with a full screen on anything unless its during a webex (or noc when watching movies) beyond that.. windows 8 appears to hold no love for the multi-windowed with more than simultaneous view enabled by the corners of our eye..
ie over lay several command prompts pinging different IP's so that you can see when one starts or stops responding while the other continues, or multiple SSH windows running a command in one then processing something in another watching for the shell to come back.. or even run MTR in a smaller ssh window watching latency and packet loss while doing other things..
all of this multitasking is hampered by a conceptualized tablet interface where your whole screen is taken up with *one* app.
Again.. the problem is that Microsoft didn't make it easy or even track what type of pc you're on.. I'm at my desk, two monitors.. I want the standard Start Menu & desktop experience .. I detach my screen / tablet .. then I'd like MS to switch over to a tablet centric interface.. but not while its attached at the desk, with two 22 inch monitors attached with the multitude of actions going on.
