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.

What is so wrong about CONTRAST

I, for one, am not impressed. There is very little contrast, no window borders, no window divisions (little lines to separate contexts). This theme gives me a headache.

Text on a plain background with no other visual clues is just lame and uninspired.
