Wow, does no one read statements from Microsoft anymore? They said in a interview that the DP of Windows 8 had everything turned on and users would not be able to select options during installation n what they want turned on/off until the Beta. IE the new UI is/will optional in the final version and the beta. These reports are useless and scare people like people where scared of Vista. Also I read the report where they got there statements from and they leave out the part that I have mentioned. These reporters should not be alowed to report half statements.

If they listen to public opinion...as they did so successfully with Win7 then the Metro interface will definitely be a switchable feature...
Many are not very enamored with it.

Metro: Last Light Review
Hey gang, I know this is really late and many of you already have the game but I finally got some time to finish playing Metro: Last Light and decided to do a quick review on it. Just to let you know, Metro: Last Light takes place right after the first one, Metro 2033, so it is recommended...

Metro 2033 will not go fullscreen
I tinkered with the user.cfg before, and I went back in to change it, but I can still see the taskbar when I open Metro. I when into Steam and verified the files, and it re-downloaded 1 thing at it didn't help. I've tried F11 and Alt+Enter.
