Even if they removed the UI formerly known as Metro, I wouldn't get it. I often have my 22" screen divided into six windows, all displayed at the same time. Win 8 will not permit that.

Hey someone of you mention dual booting of windows 8, why haven't i tought of that could i do that on a separate partition or do i require to have a separate hard drive

Edit: Why are you guys complaining about metro? its just the start menu that is changed your desktop is still there untouched except for the aero theme but thats it, if you dont wanna use the start screen then dont use it cause it really isnt that big of a deal
