I'm by no means the first one to say this
opinion On a traditional PC, Windows 8 Metro is a solution looking for a problem.
but Windows 8
and older PCs make an odd couple.
But let me back up for a second. Before the release of Windows 8 on October 26, I tested Windows 8 on tablets
only, such as the Intel-based Samsung slate that Microsoft sold in its stores. And I was impressed with Metro.
That was then. Windows 8 Pro 64-bit is now installed on my Dell Adamo
laptop. And I rarely venture into the Metro UI
unless if I'm forced to.
Of course if you're one of the relative few who have a tablet like the Samsung slate or Microsoft's Surface or a touch-screen laptop like Acer's Aspire S7, yeah, then Metro is front and center, as it should be.
