The only way I will use Windows again is if Windows Blue looks like this...

2. Windows Blue isn't Windows 9.

Oh the irony.

Considering the fact that we based Metro very loosely on LCARS - arguably the first chromeless UI - you'dve thought someone would've picked up on this sooner lol.

We? Even if you were paid/contracted by Microsoft, you never were a Microsoft employee from the looks of your About page. Please don't insinuate that you are a Microsoft employee on a site that covers primarly Microsoft/Windows news. Microsoft probably doesn't want you claiming to be one of their employees and you shouldn't represent a company you do not work for as if you do.

As you say in your own blog

I did a fair few concept designs for Microsoft a decade ago, some of which managed to find their way into Windows Vista and 7, much to my delight haha. At the moment I’m primarily a landscape/architectural photographer specializing in photorealism through HDR capture and postprocessing workflows.

Okay, I can’t use the term “we” to refer to Microsoft anymore, but I still have a rough idea of how things work, so here’s the answer to that endlessly repeated question – and rather often demand – of why can’t we disable metro / why don’t you bring back the Start Menu?

I hope someone actually figures out how to do that for a new LCARS theme for Win8 like they did for XP.
