Until there's a hack or addon that disables Metro by default and allows it to boot straight to my desktop I have zero interest in Win8. I will use Win7 until it becomes obsolete, then probably move to a Mac.. as much as that saddens me to do so. I cannot stand this relentless shift towards tablet and mobile style interfaces. I need a proper computer to perform proper high end tasks and I don't want a OS that adds any barriers between me and a properly functional desktop environment. An os that treats the desktop like an optional app that I have to "run" can just go and **** itself.
