How to Run Windows 8 Metro / Modern Apps in a Regular Desktop Window.
Stardock is fast becoming one of my favorite software developers. First, it allowed me to have the security and speed of Windows 8 without dealing with Metro, and allowing me to restore my trusty Windows 7 Start button. All for the huge price of $4.99. Now, for the same price, I can run Metro apps (some of which can be useful) in a Window on my computer, which doesn't have a touch screen. Some of the Metro apps are very nice; but, I am not going to leave my Windows desktop to use them. Microsoft is so desperate to make us use the Metro interface, that going to the desktop makes all the Metro apps disappear. Thanks, StarDock, you've done it again.
Note: I refuse to stop using the Metro name for the new interface. I am tired of saying "the interface formerly known as Metro" or some other combination. Brevity and clarity are my watchwords.
