Windows 8 Metro UI Will be Mandatory

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

Windows 1

An anonymous reader writes "The Metro UI in Windows 8 is not an option. You're going to boot into it whether you like it or not, according to Network World. If you want Explorer, then you launch it like any other app. This might not be such a bad thing if it does not consume a lot of resources, but it might also make people balk at upgrading."

I was listening to WTOP in DC this afternoon and Windows 8 was discussed by Larry Magid from CNET.

He specifically says you can use the traditional desktop.
