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.

Nah, I can't see what the big fuzz is about either.

With years of having the TV manufacturers feeding us useless HD screens (1080 vertical pixels, wtf?!) we now will also be force-fed UIs that wastes valuable screenspace.
