Why M$ didn't set up the system to run with or without Metro in the first place is baffling to me. Why take away the one thing that was WINDOWS in the Start button. From everything I have seen, unless you have a touch screen monitor, there is absolutely no use for Metro at all. Hell, even with a touch screen monitor, who the hell wants to reach across to their monitor every time they want to do something.
Same as it ever was.
