Default Re: Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Am I missing something? I guess I just don't want to use Metro. I liked Vista (honestly, after SP1 Vista was fine if you had enough RAM) and the changes they made in 7, but this new UI isn't even windows based. The point of Windows is that programs run inside Windows on your screen.

I just want my desktop view back and I want all the nice things in Metro condensed into a button in the corner of my screen that I can open without moving away from my desktop. It's a computer, not a tablet. These features would be really nice with a touch screen, but I have a mouse and keyboard. I had the same criticism of OSX when they introduced gestures and iOS-like features.
