People really are stubborn.
The only difference between the tile and the gadget is that the gadget has a 3 day forecast.
One click and you have 10 days, another click and you get a detailed forecast of those days.
Not only that but you can have multiple towns and cities, all at a glance. So again, why are people so damn stubborn? Metro meets your needs and more, but you hate it so much you don't use it when it would help you.
I don't think I'm being stubborn at all. It's a matter of preference for me. Why am I still using the gadget? Because I spend 99.99% of my time on the Desktop. And i want a small, efficient, and non-full screen
way of displaying weather information at all times. Gadgets fit that bill perfectly. The Weather gadget just sits there doing what it's supposed to do at all times and I can continue to work with as many different open windows as I want (such an outdated idea, i know!). I have absolutely no reason to want to switch back to the horridly busy, ugly, disorganized, cluttered (by default until you de-clutter it) Metro Start Screen to see the automagically updating "live" tile. (oooooh, wow! software that provides information to me? it's like magic! what a great brand-new concept! oh wait...) And I have even less reason to ever use the absolutely crappy Metro weather app. On my awesome 30" monitor, why the hell would i ever want to switch over to a space-wasting, inefficient, slow-loading, full screen display of information that can easily fit into a tiny portion in the upper right corner of my Desktop?
I disagree with your statement that Metro meets my needs. It may meet yours, but it simply does not meet mine.
