Too much whitespace but still better than the Windows 8 interface.
Exactly. I've said it a million times- it seems the only UX team at Microsoft that can't get metro on the desktop right is the Windows team. We have the Zune desktop client, which still remains one of my favorite program interfaces to this day, then Office 15, which is a great combination of both interfaces.
Come on, Microsoft. We may be getting closer to Windows 8's release, but you can do better!
