No individual bit is 'hard', its just jarring to be dumped (or having to switch) to classic to complete a task.

Wallpapers, windows chrome is all different, which I could live with it was apps, but its not...its a lot of the settings too. They've done the real basic stuff in Metro but that's it.

Same as Vista, half the control panel was still ancient 3.11 dialog box style.

Basically it shouldn't ship with a user *needing* to use classic to use Microsoft components. So Word/Paint/Calc all that stuff should be Metro-ized.
GeneralOf course it's easy... Pin
