Windows Metro is beautiful and elegant. It works wonders on my HTC HD7, and I'm pretty darn sure it's going to work just many wonders on tablets later this year. However, Microsoft also expects us to use Windows 8's Metro on our desktops with mice and keyboards - and in that scenario, I can't really see it work any wonders. The Verge user Sputnik8 decided to see what Metro would look like applied to a more regular desktop. The results are... Stunning.

...And I'll think it again: TILING WINDOW MANAGER.

Really, Microsoft should just get over themselves and make a full-blown tiling window manager already. They've pretended to do something similar for two UI concepts now. Everything old is new again...
