This still being pre beta though I'll just wait to see where MS takes it. Hopefully metro will simply be relegated to an optional sidebar type app or it's own window like the control panel, anything that gives the option of not having to look at it - I don't want it, not at all.

So I stuck linux in my vm....just so I can feel sufficiently geeky.

So you release your most stable, best version of Windows EVER in years of development in the form of Windows 7 to then scrap the lot and create an abomination.

I hope Windows 8 falls flat on it's face, it is horrendous. Good for tablets, nothing more.

Same here Grey. I don't like win 8. I can see the possibilities of it but I don't want to use it until it is seamless going from metro to desktop. I want my desktop to be my default, not metro taking over like a invading army out to rape my womenz and livestock.

It's such a shame too because the backend improvements they made to windows 8 are just phenomenal.

Well, it's such an early build yet - I'm hoping that by rc metro is given it's rightful place, which is an icon on the start menu at best imo.

I'll dl a later build in a few months and install it straight to hdd rather than in a vm and give it it's fair shake then. But there's nothing in this build but speed and memory management that makes me interested in leaving 7.

Meh - time will tell.

I still haven't had a chance to test it out on my spare PC, but I'm really waiting until the beta or RC is available.

I will be honestly shocked to not see a DT environment that looks like windows 7 when 8 RTM gets here.

Yeah me too. Thing is I can't rally say Metro is a "bad" idea, given the popularity of social networking and everything else it involves, but put it somewhere easily accessible and out of sight, maybe even a removable feature via the Programs and Features panel.

I'd be good with that.

EDIT: It's actually not so bad once all the garbage is removed from Metro. There's still very little control over icon placement, none over background and appearance of metro - but if that comes it may not be to painful to get used to.

"start" menu that takes up entire screen, is just a horrible idea.

"given the popularity of social networking" and about that, that might be ok with some, but there are people that simply don't want to be part of it, and considering how many windows pc are used at companies, **** like metro and social networking has no place in work enviroment.

Well not entirely, social networking sites like LinkedIn are quite useful for businesses, and sales or otherwise customer facing people find a lot of use in the remainder of social networking media.

This is going to be Vista all over again. People will stay with windows 7 like they did with XP.
