By the way, I have never been less excited about a Windows release. I'm still a PC guy. I owned an iPad and sold it. Now I own an Android tablet, it's somehow better and I use it daily on a regular basis. But... overlapping windows? Real multitasking? A big display with the browser next to a text editor next to a dictionary next to a messenger chat? Or a TV window in a corner of the screen (I still happily own a Media Center with a TV tuner in my desktop PC) watching the news while I'm doing something else? Anything of that is possible on a tablet. I don't like the single monotasking of the post-PC era. I'm a PC guy.

I still think that the best computer shell ever designed was Windows 95 Explorer. It got improvements in the next versions, but the original polished design has also been watered down (i.e the new start menu or Windows 7 dock-like taskbar). I really love this design, and it's painful to see that it's gone in Windows 8. Sure, Metro is good for tablets and touch interaction, but not for the "traditional" personal computer tasks.
