I have this cool way to disable metro. When it starts up. Click on the Desktop button.
I don't know why everyone's so upset about metro. Some of it I like, some of it I don't like. When I start up my computer its nice and simple to start up an app I use often, it's right there in front of me. If I need to use something suited to a more windows 7 atmosphere (like surfing the web, using the old interface with favorites bar) I simply click on the desktop button and I have it.
Everyone was happy with windows 7, and it really hasn't gone anywhere. They just added metro to it. Why the confusion? It's all there as it was.
IMO - Metros a step in the right direction, it just needs to be tweaked a bit.
Anyone who says it's confusing hasn't actually spent the time to see what it really is.
