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.

I do have a 27'' monitor at work and I tile it up into sections where I have all the relevant windows group together. I also use virtual desktops when I run out of screen space, but I would love to be able to have a big 50'' high-res screen across the wall to able to have all of my windows open and visible at the same time. With Win8's Metro theme I'm stuffed - mighty Microsoft says "no more than 2 windows for you!".
