I haven't been using Metro

I haven't been using Metro for long, but so far I love it. What a great prototype for so many others to follow. With 2.1 just being released, I'm still trying to figure everything out, but it seems to also be a great tool for all of my web service needs. I hope the Metro team continues to develop this !
