Bit premature but I'm loving Windows 8 and all the metro goodness.

Was wondering if anyone had come up with a hack to add Desktop windows to the app switcher that's located when hovering the mouse in the bottom/top left hand corner. This allows you to switch between metro apps but Desktop is just 1 app, would be good if Desktop could be separated into all the apps you have open on the desktop.

Just realized that. It treats the desktop as a metro app.

Yeah it does, you can even click on the top edge of the desktop and drag downwards to close it just like with other Metro apps, but the windows you opened in the desktop stay opened even after closing the desktop (which is a good thing).

Edit: You can snap the Desktop to the left/right edge of the screen (like with Metro Apps) and that way you'll see a list of all opened windows, when you click on one of them, it switches to it ;)
