That said, if I could turn off metro completely, and I could verify that drivers were available for my hardware, I'd be running windows8. Without the ability to turn metro off, I'll buy a mac before I allow a non-touchscreen win8 device in my home, and that's saying a lot since I swore off all apple products when they dropped the apple II line and have held to that since the early 90's.

edit: I will not be buying a third party app to make win8 work the way microsoft already knows we want.
