"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.'"

    My little sister has two laptops: A 7 years old netbook (10", Atom, 1GB RAM, XP) and a new notebook (15", Core 2 duo, 4GB RAM, W8). Guess which one uses daily and which one is used only when the Adobe Suite is required?

    People at Microsoft sure have some justification of W8, but it didn't work as intended. By not accepting it they are digging themselves in a deeper hole.
