Windows Windows 8 will be one of the most significant releases for Microsoft ever, since it pretty much rethinks the entire graphical user interface. One of the problems I personally see with Metro is that it doesn't appear to be particularly conducive to getting actual work done. In an interview with The Verge, Microsoft design director Steve Kaneko confirmed that it's hard to adapt applications like Office to use Metro.

"If we can strip out what we call chrome in an interface then your content becomes hero". What ? Is that how the designers really talk ? Good heavens, no wonder they appear to have been taken by surprise, now they're trying to actually make some 'real world' programs fit the new toy.
