I also need more than 1 application at once at home. So still don't see good use for Metro aside from tablets or phones...
I have a Surface Pro at home for ocasionally watching movies, listening to some music and surfing the web, where I like the Metro Interface. I even like Internet Explorer more than Chrome as far as the Metro Implementation is concerned...
I haven't used it yet with multiple monitors. How does this work on Windows 8?
Are you able to run different applications in metro on those monitors? Or is it just for Desktop use again? (How about the Taskbar? Does it finally extend to the other monitors?)
the new UI with touch screens will be the future of Windows.
If so, then the future of Windows itself would be in doubt.
I can see Windows 7 being around for as long as people can persuade MS to support it - or until WIndows 9, 10 or 11 comes along in a few years with a "new" paradigm - which is actually the old desktop idea brought back but with different style borders and colours. I am looking forward to upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 11!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
