John Moltz, in a piece for Macworld:
Metro is an extremely appealing interface. The tile animation is slick and refined, and I like how tiles update to show current information. What I’m less sold on is slapping it over the Windows desktop and forcing this unholy union. I like where Microsoft seems to be going with this franchise in the long run, I just wonder how painful this year’s release is going to be.
The confusing combination of Metro and traditional Windows interfaces is something of a running theme amongst Windows 8 (p)reviews.
