Windows The Verge: "ModernMix aims to change this. The app provides options to simple run Windows 8-style apps in separate individual windows in desktop mode. Windows 8 still has the usual Aero Snap functionality to align traditional apps side-by-side, and ModernMix takes full advantage of this. ModernMix remembers app window sizes so that they launch in the same place every time. A little widget in the top right-hand corner of Windows 8-style apps lets you bring them into desktop mode, and if you re-launch them from the Start Screen it will remember where you left off." Stardock - making awesome stuff since OS/2.

i agree, im now a Windows 8 convert, i think it's a great release of Windows and have installed it on all primary machines.

The irony/funny thing is that for me Windows 8 became great when i ignored all the metro stuff, i found that having the task switcher hot area on the top left really put me off using Win8, however since ignoring metro and basically using a couple of metro apps as widgets/gadgets i find it works really well.

Metro apps especially from Microsoft are a complete mess, not really encouraging when the actual developer of the OS can't get the apps right.
