I can't wait for this. I much prefer having a WIndows Start menu than installing a 3rd party one.

I prefer the Start Screen. It's nice to be able to see more shortcuts without having to go into submenus.

I can't even update my sister's laptop to 8.1. It keeps me an error everytime I try.

Someone already created this for Win 7 and 8.
I can't remember the name right now though, it was on techrepublic that the guy advertised.

I hope he gets paid for this now that microsoft is copying him

Yeah, this has been known for a while. I don't know what's the point, though. It's the same thing. Press the windows key, type the name of a program, press enter, it works.


because this will do it without flicking your entire screen between two distinct UIs. This was ungodly irritating in my eyefinity setup

It was pretty much the worst design decision ever.

Next I hope they give us a way to control programmatically which tiles show on the start menu. Until they do we will never roll out windows 8

Set your wallpaper as your Start Screen background and it doesn't feel so much like a distinct UI anymore.

Same here. My computer comes to a crawl and it stays at 0% downloaded until it gives an error.
