Microsoft attempted something different and daring with Windows 8. It introduced a whole new interface and means of interaction with your PC that was identical to a smartphone or tablet. It threw out the “Start” menu and mouse-driven interface people had used for decades in favor of a touch-driven interface with tiles, some of which received active information updates. And people hated it.

Windows 8 could have been a great hit without the Metro interface. I don't understand why Microsoft did not let the desktop version to have the classic interface and the tablets the Metro one.
