Windows 8 metro is a joke. I don't like it on the mobile and I most certainly don't like it on a desktop it's almost saying your too stupid to use a more complex system, but one thing is certain of makes more sense on mobile devices then on a desktop

you dont like it on windows phone 7??????????????? Why may I ask. Its simple and just works. Its just like a windows desktop, or android (which looks like a windows desktop), or IOS, just the icons are bigger.

I wouldnt put it past them to try forcing it down our throat with yet another exclusive DirectX .

It will be snubbed, I tried Windows 8 on the desktop and it's just abysmal. That metro UI is just crap. However, it's (metro) great on mobile devices.

I've never liked the metro look.

Well Windows 8 gives you an option to disable the metro and go with normal desktop mode like previous versions of Windows..
But if companies begin to make laptops with really good multi-touch capabilities, like in a new Macbook for example, I think it will be pretty awesome working with the Metro interface
