"you don't have to use the Metro Interface"
Windows 7 still rules.
No to Metro, No to ie9, no to IE in F11 mode
Metro if it really can be turned off will probably be the first thing to go! It might be "ok" for kids to get started, but the rest of us? Do we really want or need a push-button-like OS?
And then the Internet Explorer window!? No URL / Location / Address bar? WTF WERE THEY THINKING? How many times have we HARPED on *NOT* going to unknown sites... and yet without the URL bar ... how the f**k are you supposed to know where the F**K you are!?
REGARDLESS of ribbon like "bring it out, auto hide" it is a HORRIBLE idea! Users are already screwing up their PC's they don't need microsoft to make it easier for the cracker to do things.. and hide behind an UGLY button / "tile"-ize interface. I swear Microsoft is pushing me to debian and it will be my main operating system. Microsoft.. you've got to stop "stupid" pretty soon it will be all you're known for.
Incidentally, check the age on this discussion; it's past its 'relevancy' date.
XP does still have support
Both you guys forgot
That is when the last of us are rounded up and forced to install the New OS. Worked that way in the past - if XP still had MS support, would you have installed Vista?
