Microsoft did a great job of making a mobile OS. It looks nice and works well on any multi-touch device. Metro on the other hand is a piece of crap when it comes to desktop computing. It's terrible for multiple monitor support. All Microsoft needs to do to fix their screw up is enable the Start Menu and booting into the desktop as an option. Microsoft needs to allow users to transition from Windows XP/7 to 8 and not force 8 on the user. I have yet to meet a power user that has anything good to say about the Metro UI and it's these power users that make the decisions on what OS the company operates on.
The story of Microsoft trying to make their product sound like a gift to end users reminds me of Jay Wilson at Blizzard explaining that Diablo 3 is fun because he, not the gaming community, knows what fun is.
Microsoft you targeted a niche and will do well with that niche market, but your decision to abandon the desktop was a big mistake.
Anyone else feel like their IQ drops drastically when you use Metro?
