    The metro style is (in my opinion) great for the start menu, the windows store and so on, but I agree that it does not look good at all in several applications, with Visual Studio on top of the list.

    I have been using VS2012 for quite a while, and recently I switched to 2013: it's not simply generic resistance to changes in this case, the point is really that after a long time spent using the product I still think that this interface is not as good as the old one.

    I got used to the icons for file types in the solution explorer, but for so many others I still have frequently to hover the mouse over the icon to read the tooltip. For example, how am I supposed to associate a clock to the pending changes in the source control system?

    I think you sacrificed too much usability to the uniformity of style with windows.
