Windows Metro is beautiful and elegant. It works wonders on my HTC HD7, and I'm pretty darn sure it's going to work just many wonders on tablets later this year. However, Microsoft also expects us to use Windows 8's Metro on our desktops with mice and keyboards - and in that scenario, I can't really see it work any wonders. The Verge user Sputnik8 decided to see what Metro would look like applied to a more regular desktop. The results are... Stunning.

Well, no discussion about the looks - I liked it very much. But there is only so much you can offer on a small touch-screen, and that shows in this example. The lack of many controls is a good thing for small screens, but not for my big screen. I still don't believe that GUIs designed for small screens and finger-figgling translate well to big screens with keyboards and mouses.
