Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

I'm using GNOME 3 for lack of a decent DE, really. Currently, I'm coping with it. Nothing major, but there's this bitter sweet taste all over this desktop dilemma across the internet and it makes people move away farther from Linux.

Let's see how 3.4 goes. As far as I am concerned, neither KDE or XFCE are really productive.
