"BGR reflects on recent comments by a Metro designer. 'Metro is a content consumption space,' Microsoft UX designer Jacob Miller explains, 'It is designed for casual users who only want to check Facebook, view some photos, and maybe post a selfie to Instagram. It's designed for your computer illiterate little sister, for grandpas who don't know how to use that computer dofangle thingy, and for mom who just wants to look up apple pie recipes. It's simple, clear, and does one thing (and only one thing) relatively easily. That is what Metro is. It is the antithesis of a power user.'"

    Yes, I think it is immensely practical to have those little graphics known as letters, and an user interface which graphically arranges those letters on the screen in a grid of lines and columns. Also very useful is this motion-sensor-less hundred-something button mouse commonly known as keyboard.

    Red Hat is developing a server administration GUI. Windows - not just for Microsoft anymore.
