Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

RE[3]: Google on Windows 8

Besides, installing apps like this on the desktop, having them consume RAM, along with space in the system tray is kind of a pain. Personally, I prefer using Metro for this.

$100 buys you 16GB of RAM. The worst IM program might use 0.1GB. You can have hundreds of systemtray icons and only show the ones you want to see.

I think you just want to put other choices down because you like metro.
