You make some bold assumptions over there. No, I had forgotten about Google+ altogether, not because I play with my iPhone (I have no iPhone), but because they have no serious API or established user base, I decided I don't need a second platform. BUT it has DEFINITELY better taste than Facebook.

You can say that it follows about the same principles as metro (nothing really new there), but it's a pity Windows Live web pages do not follow those principles, making them inferior to Google+. I hope they will be remade, as practically the rest of Microsoft's web sites (azure portal, msdn, skydrive etc etc).

But still, when I see Surface or a Lumia or the first time I held a Zune HD (and I suppose it was similar for example for early iPhone adopters) I had this wow factor, this "THAT's design" feeling - that google never really gave to me. At best I said "that's a nice implementation" (see chrome, google+), in the same way I would say that I prefer Visual Studio's design over Eclipse's.
Of course that's just tastes. I am happy you explained your point of view in reaction to my post - the google supporters hadn't expressed themselves in the comments before that Wink | ;) .
