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.

Member since:

The way KDE does things has hardly any impact on anything, the least on dynamics and uptake of Windows...

And anyway, it is a project which generally follows Windows UI (I don't mean this in a "bad way", that's natural coming largely from places where Gnome-influencing MacOS was less popular, and not wanting to scare people away... too much), one which will probably continue ~failing much more than Windows, Metro or not.
