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.

As a happy Office 2003 user to date, it makes no sense to run Office with all toolbars on.

Oh, absolutely. But its possible. I was just talking about that as an example to the complexity within office that would have to be replicated some how in a metro'd version.
