While Microsoft is very clearly heading to a future in which increasingly sophisticated and full‑featured versions of the Metro user experience will eventually squeeze out the classic Windows desktop, we’re a long way from that future. And honestly, Metro and the desktop will coexist for the foreseeable future, thanks to the over one billion PCs out there still running classic Windows applications and the vast depth of experience that users have with this environment.
Fortunately, Microsoft hasn’t left desktop users in the lurch with Windows 8. This version of Microsoft’s client OS includes deep integration with new core Metro user experiences, and many desktop‑related improvements like a new File Explorer, a new Task Manager, a new file copy and move experience, and more. So even if you spend most of your day in the desktop, Windows 8 will be a useful and desirable upgrade.
