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.

..., but the age of the study doesn't really change the point much.

In fact, the age of the study completely changes the point. Your point was that a lot of people are scared of computers. What you actually showed was that between 1992 - 1994 a lot of people were scared of computers. Your statement was about here and now but the data you provided was from 17 years ago. How about we use data from the 1920's to make statements about here and now ? Still think age of the study doesn't make a difference ?

...while the younger generation is much less likely to fear technology they are also much less likely to spend a great deal of time learning the details.

Either add "In my opinion" to the start of this sentence or provide a source.
