Windows users have always loved the fact that we have a choice over what software we run on our hardware. We choose whether we run the Home or Professional editions of Windows, we chose which version of Windows that we want, and some of us take what we’ve chosen to use and then tinker with it.

When you own a Mac, things are a little different. Mac users believe that the applications that came with their computers are always better than the status quo, and they’re not afraid to shout that from the roof tops. Sometimes it’s something to admire, but other times it’s nothing more than pure fanboyism. The Apple hardware sure is pretty though.

I was talking to some friends about the impending launch of Windows 8, what it means for the tablet ecosystem and other assorted technophile topics when the topic of Metro came up.

The collective gasp that the topic evoked was.. funny. Some people tend to absolutely adore it while others tend to despise the very name.

Personally, I’m quite ambivalent about the concept as I feel it tends to work incredibly well on phones and tablets while feeling a bit clunky on desktops. That being said, I’ve haven’t used a Metro-enabled desktop for more than a few days so maybe it’s something that you grow into.

Either way, Metro has been Microsoft’s biggest risk so far. It’ll either usher in a new era for the company or sink it to unforeseen depths. I’m sure a lot of you are waiting to see the outcome of this paradigm shift.

This week, I want to know how you feel about Metro. I’d love to know! So vote away and as always, we’d love to hear your thoughts – simply post a comment below!

It’s safe to say that the gaming scene has witnessed what is easily more than a fair share of MMORPG’s in recent years. From the classics of Everquest and Ultima Online to the game-changing hit World of Warcraft and the myriad (yet slightly boring) EVE Online, there seems to have been no expense spared in sending eager players forth for gold, loot, and the life-consuming quest for an epic mount.

Now this would be all well and fine with me, but by some strange peculiarity we seem to have been left with a superfluous plethora of titles that, whilst borrowing heavily from Blizzard Entertainment’s magnum opus, seem to have been unable to capture its staggering popularity and lasting impression.

For quite sometime I have been thinking about trying out a photo app. Believe me, the Marketplace has an abundant number of apps related to camera and photos and fhotoroom core seemed very interesting.

Fhotoroom is one of the apps which will help you tweak your images, add styles to it, save and upload to share it with your friends and family. I admit that I am not much of a camera person and so this app is a life saver. And it is always good to have a photo editor in your mobile. Let’s see whether it’s worth your time!

Personally, I love the Windows Phone setup and everything that comes with it. They always seem to please and give me a worthy mobile experience. But, the system hasn’t really taken off as I assumed it would – which really disappointed me. I feel as if Microsoft hasn’t been given enough credit for something which is so powerful.

In this article I’m going to explain what I think of the system. As well as trying to urge you to change! Read on to find out more!
