Microsoft seems a bit unfocused and dropping Metro is emblematic. The stated intent was in line with their long standing attitude that the mobile experience should be a replica of the desktop experience. That couldn't be more wrong and it appears Microsoft is finally getting the message, albeit very late in the current production cycle.
I haven't seen Metro but I understand it mirrors the new tile interface on Windows handsets. Not impressed with Windows 7.5 so I too was underwhelmed with Metro - er, Microsoft 8 Style UI.

Until Microsoft realizes how stupid they've been about Windows 8's interface - all the while ignoring the internet at large as they rail against it...
I'll be sticking with Windows 7 and Windows 8 can go to hell.
Metro is one of the worst ideas that Microsoft has ever had.
Give me [Start] or give Microsoft death!

There might be a trademark issue with the old Mosaic browser though.
Need a Windows ISO image?

"The New" is used universally to introduce new model changes in products and services in virtually every industry from automotive to fast food (The New Domino's Pizza, which is WAY better). Ask Apple. ;o)
