Invasion of the Metro Gnomes!
They’ve been sneaking in, one at a time … quietly, so nobody would notice it until it is too late but someone has to speak out. That’s right, we’re under attack! One day you are using one of your favorite file shares without a worry in the world. The next day you log in to see the carnage wreaked by a Metro Gnome
While you are still reeling from that, another Gnome attacks your mail as well.
One day it is the UI you are used to, the next it is GIANT SPACE-EATING BOXES EVERYWHERE – with 3 heads – that all look like Elvis!
Now, I realize that these are Microsoft properties and that they are doing a full court press to promote Windows 8, including Win8’s Metro UI, so it is expected that these things would happen.
How then do you explain the Metro Gnome that attacked the Trillian Instant Messenger the other day? Did the Gnomes develope super powers? Is it Mind Control? Have they somehow managed to leverage Reaper Indoctrination?
I don’t know the answer but am pretty sure that we’ll all be up to our eye sockets in Metro Gnomes by Halloween – and they will be attacking from more places than just Redmond!
