Metro UI is another vista. But it is worse than ever before! I don't want to convert my PC to a tablet!

Vista was a good system. But this Metro is ridiculous for the desktop.

Yeah, Metro UI is ridiculous for the desktop. I am asking you a question : Will we be able to remove the Metro UI in Final Windows 8?

Hopefully, we'll have to wait for the Beta to know for sure.

I agree with you, Vista is a good OS. As I listened to all of the complaints against Vista I was bewildered. The only problem I experienced was with a few softwares that did not have upgraded drivers for it.

I have Vista Ultimate x64 on my backup pc and I also have a backup image of it on this pc.

I have no idea what Metro is but since I am not interested in anything but desktops at the moment I really don't care.

What is getting my attention is the Asus UX21 Ultrabook. Because its deput is relatively new I will wait until its more fully developed before deciding whether to purchase one or not. However, I am in NO HURRY. The desktop is all I want, all I need.

Metro is to dumb down society. I hear it everywhere, and it is everywhere.

MS is investing millions into the development of a new OS in order to "dumb down society"?
