I've been working with Windows for as long as its been around and this is the most convoluted mess I've seen so far! Rate Comment 1 Vote Down dragonblogger - 344 days ago Permalink Reply I adapted as best as I could with shortkeys and using the Windows start menu often. I figure I adapt to the vision of a companies new OS rather than try to force it back to what I am used to. This helps me better see the direction of where the OS is going. Still a great way for people to get the Start button back that is a main factor on why people don't want Windows 8.

Rate Comment 1 Vote Down attached - 231 days ago Permalink Reply MS strategy really sucks. Was it so hard to put dual mode for users to choose - normal interface or new one. Rate Comment 1 Vote Down avgjoegeek - 231 days ago Permalink Reply I never understood why they couldn't just use their detect code (which exists already!) to determine the type of interface to be used - then ASK THE USER instead of shoving it down out throats!

Rate Comment 1 Vote Down avgjoegeek - 231 days ago Permalink Reply I actually love a lot of what they have done with Windows 8 - just not a fan of how they forced the METRO screen and removed the Start button from the OS.
