Finally got my Windows 8 box up. The only thought I’ll add to the noise is this:
Metro on a phone. Metro on a gaming console. Metro on a PC. I like where this is going.
Then I have to install VMWare Tools, or visit the control panel, and I’m greeted by Old & Ugly. Why is the “polished glass” look still in vogue?
There’s a lot of polish already applied, and a few details that bug me, but overall its going to be an interesting year. I really hope developers run with the Metro concept.
Microsoft: you have all the pieces in place for your own radical shake up, and you have a potentially killer platform here. Don’t fuck this up.
