ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I imagine someone will make a Metro UI-like interface for Windows 7/Vista/XP at some point, so anyone who wants it could use that.

Yes, but that one claims to require Windows 7, so it might not work in ReactOS given our Windows 2003 compatibility target.

To have Metro, we first must get Dot Net 4.5 working

Metro might be great for tablets but personally I hate it

PC users or I better say power users will hate it from day 1

I use it a while now and it sucks. I disabled it as much as possible and put back a start menu. Now windows 8 is fine and has some nice new features I don't wanna miss anymore.

I'm already up to speed in first two sentences, but don't knwo much about the third. Could you elaborate on what are these nice new features? :-) I like the new taskmanager and overal responsiveness (running in dual-core VM and response is great).

I'm curious too which features you found useful in 8? I havent booted it up yet, but have heard mixed reviews from friends. I guess the speed is the best part they mentioned though.

Metro UI suck IMHO, but porting advanced features to "our" GUI could be a good idea.

As I claimed here:
It would be great to have Haiku GUI functions instead (vector icons, windows stack&tile, etc).
And here's another interesting related discussion @ Haiku forums.

Hope that inspires !
