Windows Pokki is a start menu replacement for Windows - and it has already been downloaded 1.5 million times for Windows 8. "Since the launch of Windows 8, we've seen over 1.5 million Pokki downloads on the new OS itself and users opening the Pokki Menu an average of 10 times a day. These early numbers demonstrate that users enjoy being able to instantly access and discover apps, straight from the desktop." And this is just one of the countless replacements. Microsoft should've never kept the traditional desktop in there - they've given users the ability to escape Metro, and this will only hurt the new environment.

Metro is a UI for people who neither need nor can use a computer.

Metro CANNOT service the needs of people who actually use a computer for real tasks like CAD, CAM, programming, electronics, and similar activities way beyond the intellectual capacity of social media freaks who never had an original thought in their entire collective lives.

Hey! Microsoft is actually insulting you, retards. It's saying "We are hiding what computers can actually do so you won't be reminded you are a useless piece of crap! We just want all your money, so hand it over."

bye dummies
