Windows In the article on Windows 8, I already mentioned that in order to demonstrate the viability of Metro for something other than Facebook and Twitter, Microsoft should come up with a Metro interface for Microsoft Office - one that doesn't leave out 90% of Office's features. Well, Microsoft has hinted that they are, indeed, working on Metro Office. In addition, it turns out Microsoft isn't entirely sure to how to address the issue if legacy applications on ARM.

The reason Vista was terrible, is that it's a rushed inconsistent mess. Not to forget, it had bad rap before it was released as well.

Windows 8 on the other hand is bimodal -- a strict paradigm shift. Not so with Metro interface; it has been well received on cellphones from what I know.
