Jeff Croft commenting on Windows 8:

Effectively, Metro works just like Windows Media Center does: it’s just an app that run atop the Windows we all know and…well, know. Just as Media Center provides a 10-foot UI on top of the existing keyboard-and-mouse Windows UI, so does Metro provide a touchscreen UI.

He has some other great criticism, but the above highlights exactly what the problem is with Windows 8. Windows alone is fine for computers, Metro is great for touch — combining the two though is just, as Croft says, “ghetto”. Or think about it like this: how many people are clamoring for that great Windows Media Center experience?
