If you still can't see what people don't like about metro after reading all those posts then this thread is just a waste of interweb space.
Don't see you getting it by asking again and getting all the same replies.
Actually, he has a good point. From what I read, which is unfortunately a lot
), very few people have fully expressed their reasoning behind the dislike of Windows 8. I say very few because some have given solid reasons as to why they don't like it.
Throwing out the relativeness of aesthetics, all you really see is, "Next Vista/ME", "Not intuitive", "Less efficient", "Slower", "Interrupts workflow", "Unproductive" "Takes an extra second to shutdown", etc.
If I had to guess, I would say that 2 out of every 10 "I don't like it" posts give viable reasons as to how it does any of the above. So, it's not a matter of "reading all those posts". It's a matter of these posts actually having something of substance within them. I don't mind somebody debating the pros and cons, merits or demerits of any given person/place/thing. But, if you're going to debate, offer supporting evidence for your argument.
Anecdotally, I went to lunch with my sister yesterday. We were discussing something (can't remember what it was) and she told me that's how her students respond to certain things. When asked why something is the way it is or why they like something, they answer, "'cause it is." or "'cause I do."
