Report: Majority of Windows 8 Users Ignore Metro / Modern UI Applications As my doctor said after discovering a serious infection following my surgery - "Well there's your problem..." As big a fan as MS is of spying on what users are doing, they can't have missed this one and is probably a BIG reason for the Windows 8.1 revamp. To be honest, I find it surprising because even though I am not a huge fan of Modern UI (why are people still calling it "Metro"?) I visit Modern UI apps A LOT more often than just a few times a day. That is probably because I enjoy News Bento and Netflix. I also use the Mail app quite a bit. So, interesting and worth a read. I find it especially surprising that tablet users are not using Modern UI apps more since they have touch. I guess you really can't teach an old dog new tricks.
