Windows Windows 8 will be one of the most significant releases for Microsoft ever, since it pretty much rethinks the entire graphical user interface. One of the problems I personally see with Metro is that it doesn't appear to be particularly conducive to getting actual work done. In an interview with The Verge, Microsoft design director Steve Kaneko confirmed that it's hard to adapt applications like Office to use Metro.

Sounds like marketing graphic designers got to decide on the Metro look and the rest of the company has to live with it. I bet Microsoft has a lot of disgruntled usability professionals ready to leave the sinking ship or go postal on the department that came up with Metro.
