quote: You need a background wallpaper in Metro (yes i still call it metro). The thing i hate the most about the new start screen is the unicolor background, after all these years of effort to make nice looking desktop themes. More customisable tiles. Not just change the size, i want to fill my screen from top to bottom, leave gaps without tiles auto-ajusting, like i do with icons on the desktop.
quote: Ribbon. It's the corner stone of office. If you want to get rid of the desktop you need to port the ribbon to metro. It doable (swipe down from top) but so far the top of the screen has not been used by Microsoft for apps menus.
