Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

As someone who loves the workflow of Metro strictly on Windows Phone 7, I'm curious what it is about it you don't like?

I agree, though, that Metro on Windows 8 is indeed horrid. I am curious to see what WP 7.8 brings to my phone, and I'd love to at least try out a WP8 phone soon even though I can't upgrade for several months yet (or ever if Sprint doesn't get on the ball).
