Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

Just like they tried to rename the "ribbon". It failed miserably. Metro is stuck in people's minds, it won’t be going away.

Mind blow time: the System Tray is not called the system tray, and never has been by Microsoft. It’s called the Notification Area and has been since Windows 95.
