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.

Sorry if that was taken as some sort of derogitory or sexist statement, that was certainly not my intent. It would have made less sense if I called it the 'Rachel test'. My only point was that she is a very flexible person but far from a geek. Even with all of here exposure to so many different desktops, she still felt way out of her comfort zone with Metro...that should be a warning for Microsoft. Again, sorry if my title was a bad choice.
