Windows This is mandatory listening and watching material for understanding the design methodology and ideas behind the Metro interface in Windows 8 (and thus, Windows Phone 7). All this sounds great in theory, and Jensen Harris, one of the minds behind Metro, is clearly passionate about it - and I love people who are passionate about their work. It's just that to me, the Metro UI doesn't seem to work very well for actual work. I want window management! I'm taking all this into account for an article on Metro in the Developer Preview. Stay tuned.

yeah, reminds me of the Dos=> Win 3.11 transition. Windows versions were often less functional and stable than the previous dos versions. I avoided doing most things in windows. At least Win 8, like win3.1 did, has a way running the old apps the old way.
