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.

Seriously, am I the only one who can't see it? I mean no disrespect to the author, but this reminds me of the Gnome High-Contrast theme without the contrast. The font looks like it's meant for semi-blind people and every control is so big that you would be able to hit it while using the mouse through a triple layer of kitchen mittens. What's up with this recent culture of wasting screen real estate?
