Sure they could if the the plush metro like graphics werent the biggest pile of crap on the planet ruining the latest version of Windows....why would I want the same graphics to screw up my DVR? fleckrj, you cam change your sort order to be alphabetical...
I don't like metro on a desktop, particularly a dual screen workstation designed for multitasking. However it works better designed in the "10 inch ui" tablet touch form or the "10 foot ui" leanback (I can read and navigate from my sofa) design perspective.
More so the sense of context it conveys when smooth scrolling, navigating into and out of screens. Through graphic motion and animation, the system creates a sense of context and depth, which completes the experience.
Applying this to folders, selecting a folder and seeing the contents "slide out" from underneath it (similar to an iphone / ipad like screen animation) would convey a sense of belonging... ie) these items came from ... descended out of this folder.
