I spend a lot of time on the Microsoft Community Forums, and I've noticed an interesting trend:
There are a lot of questions popping up along the lines of "How do I disable the changes from Update 1?" or "How do I stop my computer from taking me to the desktop when I close an app?" or "How do I get rid of that annoying black bar on top of my apps?"
It looks like there really were more people who liked (or at least are ok with) Metro and didn't speak up than previously thought. Certainly more than the naysayers would have us believe. And now they're annoyed by the changes made to try to appease the desktop UI users.
It looks like this Update might be a big mistake. Not only did it not address the core issues of the complainers (more options to hide Metro) but it's ticking off the people who do like 8.
MS needed to let the desktop UI fans hide the Metro side, rather than try to turn Metro into a second desktop.
