Let's say ^ is true (Metro = Windows 8) which I disagree.
Let's say the average pc users have a 20" screen.
- How many icons can you put on it? Many.
In fact, it's too many it becomes harder to locate the icon you want.
- Beside creating shortcuts and widgets and starting at your wallpapers, what do people actually use their desktop space for?
I will let you answer ^.
Personally, I have a clock and weather widget with no icons on my screen (24") because I want to look at my wallpapers every time I turn on my PC. I have my most used programs on my task bar. When I need to use other programs, I press the "Start" key and start typing the first 3 letters of the program I want to use.
While I don't like losing my task bar, I think Metro is a step to a right direction. I'm sure the final version will make more sense.
