Windows Over the past few days, Microsoft has been talking about improvements made to Windows 8 on its 'Building Windows 8' blog at MSDN. Strangely enough, the improvements mentioned were either dealing with the classic desktop, or were demonstrated using the classic desktop - and not the fancy Metro user interface which is supposed to be Windows 8's big new thing. Today's post finally gives a little more detail about how the classic and Metro UI work together, but questions still remain.

While Metro is a great achievement having a full fledged Touch Ready UI, I honestly don't want it for point and click. I prefer classic. When I do get a Tablet or convertible, I am sure I will use Metro as the default. So I hope there is an option in Control Panel where I can uncheck Metro and make Classic my only default on my laptop.
