Metro isn't a skin, that's the whole point of why we're where we are with opposition to win8.
It's not a skin, it's an overlay, I never said skin. And since you made it very clear you don't install "3rd party software" on your computer, I'd suggest you stick with whatever you have. You are the minesweeper, own it.

Pretty much. Something people are not realising is that "metro ui" is just the new start menu. It's the same damn thing, all the same stuff, not hard to navigate.

Nothing is a basic feature, it's all trial and error that get's implemented over time after enough bitching or praise takes place. Just wait and see where the coin lands and that's how windows will be in the future.
