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 don't know if I'd say that. As mentioned by Thom, these all look almost identical to the Zune software from 2009, including the scrollbars and fonts.

Not a bad look, but honestly I get tired of looking at it after a while.

Mmm? Some Googling for "zune theme" doesn't show anything that really looks like that. Though to be fair it is actually a lot flatter and more minimal than Radiance.
