What do you think about the Metro UI in which Windows Phone 7 is designed and in which Windows 8 will come out? I think it's cool, but I'm not sure if it will match with a desktop or a laptop PC...

What are your thoughts on this on?

It's not a computer OS. It's a mobile one.

For tablets and phones, fine. It's not the sort of thing I want on my Desktop or laptop though.

It's great on Phones and tablets. It should stay away from non-touchscreen computers though.

Good thing Windows 8 has a task bar under all the tablet stuff.

The Metro UI will not fully replace the desktop. Most tech reports are only talking about the new UI because of how much of a change it will be but some reports have actually said that you will have to slide your finger (or mouse) to open the new UI and the main portion of the OS is still the dektop that you know and love. This video shows a little bit of the original Windows system but they don't talk too much about it because it doesn't have any new features:

I like the new UI though.
