Not to excited with the new metro look yet...
I haven't used it yet, but it seems like the most overrated 'technique' (it's really a UI, right?) of the moment.
Although it seems to work really well on phones (I'll get a Windows Phone just for that)!

The Windows Runtime looks pretty cool though.
But WHY do I have to learn a whole new framework just as I was getting to know .NET better? D'Oh! | :doh:

I'll probably get Windows 8 at the same time as I will get a new computer... Not anytime soon.
It's an OO world.
