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.

The desktop mode is not a legacy mode and not a second class citizen. It's not going to phased out.
Earlier report on this was wrong, mainly by journo doomsayers.
MS has explained the importance of the Desktop mode for serious work.
