Windows One tiny thing I wanted to mention about Windows 8: ever noticed how context menus in Metro appear above the mouse cursor instead of underneath? I'm assuming this is done because of finger input (by opening above, your finger and hand doesn't cover the menu), but with a mouse, it's just plain weird. Fun little detail though - shows you how much thought has gone into the touch aspect of Windows 8.

Except that with the 3+ decade old desktop paradigm (based on the several hundreds year old desktop), you can do whatever metro can do, and a lot more. With metro, you can only do what metro allows you to.
IMHO palm got it right with webos, which admittedly looks like a scaled down windows desktop... yet better.
