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?

can't do more harm

The animation certainly can't do any more harm. I still have customers who don't know were their document has gone when they change window and Word loses focus. Hell, until I got her using Linux and turned on the "dodge" effect for window switching, my grandmother still had trouble with the idea. For those who don't know, "dodge" is an animation of the window currently in focus sliding aside, and the one you're focusing on sliding out a bit and back in on top of the old window.
