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.

This article is a great answer to your question. Odds are if you are posting here you are an enthusiast, or at least technologically adept. The vast majority of people aren't. If something gets moved or changed you can find it, others can't. Removing the start button and the different control styles of the new start screen were enough to completely befuddle people. The lack of any meaningful tutorial only compounded the problem. Hell I have fellow employees that struggle just with using outlook. Throwing metro at them would be like throwing them in the ocean without a life preserver.
