"I don't want no Metro!"
I know, I know, Apple is the best and Chrome is getting better. But I've been a Microsoft user since MS-DOS was the operating system du jour, but it looks like I'll have to change the next time I upgrade:
How Windows 8 Throws Computer Users Under the Bus: "But Microsoft has made the curious decision not to let PC-based users choose to avoid the Metro screen altogether. Unless you come up with some hack or third-party add-on (which most computer users will never do), you’ll still have to navigate through Metro every time you turn on your computer.
That simply doesn’t make any sense from an end-user perspective. Microsoft seems so infatuated with the tablets and smartphones that it’s throwing those boring old computer users under the bus. Sure, Windows 8 includes plenty of cool new features for PC users, but that’s not the point. The company is clearly betting the farm on trying to catch up in the mobile space."
