"Once installed you need to give the usual location details and LOGIN with a Windows Live account."

Is this a paradigm shift for Operating System accounts? Or did the author mean something else?

I also wonder how software developers will upgrade/update their interfaces that will satisfy the Windows 8 requirements and still function for Windows 7 users.

^ You can create a local account like normal. You do not have to sign in with a Windows Live account.

I generally tend to agree with most of the article. It's going to take time to get used to things, and it's going to appear to be 2 different interfaces for quite some time for most people.

I've forced myself to start using it day to day on a secondary desktop at work and it's getting easier as I learn my way around. I'm not planning yet to upgrade anything at home (or at work for that matter), but I'm not finding Windows 8 to be the most awful thing in the world any longer.

This is perhaps because we've seen the rough side of Metro, the beginning of its creation where everything just looked square, two-colored and boring. The more I watch it around the internet the more appealing it gets, but I think I'm still ways from actually trying it out.

Though I like giving second chances (first being the Developer Preview).

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
what Metro MUST have is the ability to display multiple CONCURRENT WINDOWS.
Without that -- as a workplace OS FORGET IT --Dead in the water.

For home users just surfing the Internet / reading emails / loggong on to places like facebook or watching movies / dvd's --fine but try to do any serious work like translating documents, comparing spreadsheets etc ONLY USING METRO --then it's all over.

This won't fly in a workplace --100% given.
