How boring

Windows 8 turned out to be a very fundamental change in the way users use their PCs, in my opinion too unecessary and stupid.

I'll continue using Arch Linux and won't care about Windows 8 for the forseeable future.

Oh, its interface is plain ugly and uninspirative.

EDIT: for me, it seems Internet Explorer is all inside Metro. EU, don't miss the opportunity to have some fun punishing Microsoft ;)

Why did you even care in the first place, enough to comment about how awful it is if you are running Arch, are happy with it, and plan on continuing to use it.
