I guess I'm going to be the odd ball.. 02/16/2014
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit
The switch between the regular desktop and metro is a lot more seamless than i thought. This was a major concern for me because I saw them as separate entities. They are not; they are one thing: Windows 8.1. Although it does take some getting used to, the new UI is much simpler to move from place to place and close things and go here and there. Just little motions and clicks and nothing seems to get in the way of another (except maybe the bottom left start button corner if you have to click something down there). Also the windows 8 apps available through metro create an even more seamless experience moving between some of your favourite programs.
Although I love the side screen menus, there are sometimes that clicking things in corners is kind of difficult, but not entirely.
A lot of people are complaining about the windows account. I understand they were kind of forcing it, but when I realized i could just sync my current gmail account that i use with my windows account, it wasn't so much as a bother.
