Windows This is mandatory listening and watching material for understanding the design methodology and ideas behind the Metro interface in Windows 8 (and thus, Windows Phone 7). All this sounds great in theory, and Jensen Harris, one of the minds behind Metro, is clearly passionate about it - and I love people who are passionate about their work. It's just that to me, the Metro UI doesn't seem to work very well for actual work. I want window management! I'm taking all this into account for an article on Metro in the Developer Preview. Stay tuned.

And I think you and Thom have extremely limited vision and limited imagination. Yours and Thom's rhetoric reminds me of "tech savvy" folks that talked of how superior the command line was to GUIs back in the day, and the command lines were better for doing actual work and that folks would disable GUIs to stick with command lines.
