"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.'"

    Win+R for the run box, then 'shutdown /s /t 0' should still work, or '/r /t 0' if you want a reboot. For some reason the shutdown command defaults to 30s, so /t 0 will make it skip that. There's probably some sort of reason behind that, because it's not the usual way to shut down a windows box.

    Especially hilarious that it's pretty much faster to do it on Windows with a command line, considering that with (X)Ubuntu, it's all of 2 clicks with a taskbar widget.

    "Is that really true?" "I just spent the last hour telling you to think for yourself! Didn't you hear anything I said?"
