Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

really ... its a square with one color and in 2D.

just because you click on it and it "animates" doesnt make it "far more 3d than everything else".

afterstep in the 90's already swirled and animated the windows on maximize and minimize more than metro.

the 3d is on your mind ... on code probably is a <table> with blue background color <td>'s and some jquery animation on click ( i am improvising )

What do you think 3D graphics are? An illusion. Have you done any graphics programming? Thjs is fucking ridiculous. The perspective transforms in Metro are definitely 3D transformations.

Furthermore, they've removed airspace issues between pure DX surfaces and UI surfaces to let them naturally interop (using DirectComposition which takes bitmaps from various APIs). So in other words you're talking nonsense.

So basicly you start saying all 3D is an illusion, but then the perspective transformations in Metro are definitely 3D transformations ? You really think they are 3D or not based on an animation "perspective" ? Where in the metro desktop or the classic desktop is the Z axis ? There isnt ... everything else is an animation ... an illusion.

Have YOU done any 3D graphics programming ?

No, i am not talking nonsense ... you just want to believe that everything has to be blank one colour squares to be true 3D and everything else is an illusion.

So ... Metro's swirl is reall 3D and others are an illusion ?!?!? fanboy's , geez....
