What's your take on this tribe? From your experience, do your friends, family etc. find metro Modern UI it "good looking"? From my experience, not so much. I hear people saying "Windows 7 looks so much better than Windows 8" and "your phone looks weird" (Windows Phone). Modern UI is something new and fresh, and it is quite Beautiful according to many (me included), but that really doesn't matter if the average person don't think so.
