Unless the first service pack restores the traditional desktop / start for non-tablet PC's I doubt very much that it's going to make much difference to those of us who are currently vehemently opposed to using metro (no matter what they want to call it). Vista SP1 resolved the great majority of issues that folks had with Vista, but it didn't improve adoption rates one iota.

In fact it was probably around the time of Vista SP1 that folks started demanding the ability to order PCs without an OS from Dell.

Simple, clean and professional?! Huh? Must be a different OS than what I played with.

This metro crap is NOT simple and not professional. Its a touchscreen interface being forced on DESKTOP users and it will blow up in their face. Just like XP Turtle Edition (aka Vista) did. Trying to force your customers to bend to your will is the opposite of 'professional'.

Unfortunately we're all using vista now anyway.. all-be it renamed and tweaked slightly..

Seriously, use vista with all updates and use win7.. they are pretty much the same thing..
Wait.. win 8 will flop.. win 9 will bring something we really need/want for gaming and we'll all be on the bandwagon same as 7.

Shit.. if win 2k supported DX11 I'd still be using that..

I am fully aware of that :p
It's just been exceedingly overused on many forums to describe the Windows 8 UI, and makes one wonder as to why people feel the need to add "sexual" to a piece of software.
