Don't see the attraction personally. Not a fan of the dayglow colors for one thing. But to each his own.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First thing I did when I bought my new laptop (after making a partition for Linux, of course) was install Classic Shell to get rid of the Metro interface on Windows 8. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I tried Metro on a Surface tablet. It was silly, basically turning your entire operating system in one big "ribbon". Didn't like it, I'd rather run Plasma Active :D

Ya! I was scratching my head a bit on that when I saw it.

As making linux into something like that is Blasphemy as far as I'm concerned! :shock:

But hay each to their own. And just gave me the crack-ups when I saw it.

Oh sorry, missed your sarcasm. Yeah, that is pretty ridiculous stuff there, considering Metro is pretty much widely unpopular, and might even be partially a factor as to why Valve is bringing their stuff to Linux. Win for us, thanks Microsoft.

And there's this (partially NSFW icons?).

May I bump this topic?

I haven't actually used Windows 8, so I can't tell you about the metro interface. But to an extent, it does interest me, and gives me a little bit of an idea. I think it would be a cool idea to have the Linux Mint menu have a more metro look. I don't mean a giant screen of tiles. The menu would still have its same look, but the icons could be arranged the way the user chooses. They could be in columns, in groups, in folders, or whatever.

Here's an example of what I mean.

I hear you, td...a friend of mine has a friend who just bought a new toshiba laptop that was on sale at Best Buy (with windows 8, of course) and he is bringing it over to him to get things set up (he isn't a linux user and will be staying with windows) the first thing my friend is going to do for him after it is set up is to add this:

His friend played with it in the store and didn't like the metro interface one bit :wink:
So my friend is going to give him back his "windows 7" as it were... :D
