You could have hit next after entering a username, just like in w7

You will be able to the same thing with the start screen. You can actually fit more applications onsreen at once, since it is fullscreen. Search with instant results and every feature of the w7 start menu that I have tried has been retained.

Use Netplwiz just like win 7, automatically logs you in even if you have a password

So boot times are slow because you have to drag up and enter a password. You honestly don't need the start menu button, I mean it is still there, just off screen. The metro screen IS the start menu. Just got bigger icons...Seriously there is nothing to adapt to. Just click off screen at the bottom left corner and you will be brought to your new start menu. Do that again to return to your desktop.

I would hate having to type in a password everytime I turn on the computer. Hopefully I can set it so I don't have to.

It's nicer to just disable requiring password on boot, since then you still get all the other features of using a cloud account with windows.

Yes, you can. It's in the users settings somewhere (not in the new metro config, in the old control panel one). I don't remember off the top of my head but I have it set up like that on my Win 8 drive at home.

I expect they WILL ship. It's a habit of PC stores, to bundle their PCs with the "latest newest bestest" *cough cough* OS.
A bad habit, if you ask me.
