Llamas

It takes an iPad about 6 times as long to discharge as two mating llamas.

Metro breakdown! Windows 8 UI is little gain for lots of pain

Re: Make it a feature, not a requirement

From the screenshots I've seen, the primary monitor gets Metro, houses the Start window etc. The other monitors have a desktop. This can apparently cause problems when hunting the 'hot pixels' to open the various Metro menus at the corners of the primary screen.

Sadly this is for the developer preview only - it has been removed from the consumer preview. I don't know if anyone has figured out a way to get a Win7 style interface back yet.
