did Microsoft change it in Release Preview/RTM version ?
They didn't change it, you can just press the win-key and start typing. It splits apps, files and config into diferent tabs though, with the app-tab showing by default, but it does have the number of results behind each category.
Also, printscreen is working as usual, no need for win+prtscr. These things, at least, are things that shouldn't hold you back from switching.
That being said, for me the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of win8, and I'm sure people will/have come up with ways to make the disadvantages less noticeable/annoying.
