I think Metro is very childish looking...but UNcolorful? No way!

Look at the mail app. Look at the messaging app. Look at the Skydrive app. 90% of every screen is blank white space with very little shading or color. Great on a 4-5 inch phone screen. Maybe great on a 10 inch tablet. On a 23 inch screen I want to put on sunglasses.

Now that I have a Lumia 920 I can definitely say the design concepts are fantastic on that form factor.

I don't use any of those applications so I have no idea how they used to look or look today. I tried to open one but they want passwords. The password screens are very plain.

I got to play with a Asus RT tablet the other day and was quite impressed. What didn't impress me was the fact that the owner thought she had paid for something that would run all Windows software, when in fact it wouldn't. Microsoft has created a lot of confusion in name of unifying an interface among dissimilar platforms.

Eventually, she'll be right when Store Apps are all apps. But indeed it is surprising that microsoft doesn't make it clear that RT means not the same as your other windows computer.

Just use the desktop applications! Kidding! But I know what you mean, it needs more options...

Should've gotten one of these. It was going for $399 on Black Friday. I almost wanted to pick it up but I decided against it as it's still new and I'd rather have the more expensive versions.
