Have you even used it? I have a feeling this is gonna be like all the people that said "Vista sucks" when they never even used it. The desktop portion is a vast improvement.

I have the consumer preview installed on a virtual machine right now and so far I can't stand using metro on the desktop. It's even worse than Ubuntu's move to unity for me. I have to say that although it isn't for me, it would be great for people who aren't very PC savvy and use their PCs mostly for content consumption but as a productivity desktop yuck.

I'm still going to buy the $40 upgrade because I can't afford to ignore it as a developer, but I also expect a pretty quick turnaround for SP1 that will probably include some metro banishing features.

Nope. I can see how you might think that, but that is just where I found the info. Try a search yourself. I just want people to get their *#$%*# $15 back after MS screws them out of it for something they should be giving away for free.
