Either way you are wrong. How do I know this? I've been using Windows 8 Server since February, starting with the Beta. In every iteration of Windows 8 I've used since then the Control Panel has always been included on the Start Menu at install. Either Microsoft absolutely loves me enough to include Control Panel on only my copy of Windows or you know...
I am sorry, but they did not. The ones I bought did not come with control panel on the start screen, but a whole bunch of crapware. Now I have never used the beta version, just the version they sell in the stores. I also only used them in the store, the I bought them for gifts for my workers. Every time there is a major release they can enter to win the device. I then hook them up with the device, it is really not a drawing, just a list.
But that is not the point. The point is I can add or take away anything to the start screen. But if I add all the icons to the start screen that I use in 1 day, then I might as will have a app list. I do not install programs I do not use on my computer. To have the start screen cluttered with all the icons is just defeating the point of the start screen.
Windows says that this version is intuitive. But when you get down to it, it is not. You have the desktop that was neutered to make sure that people use the tablet metro version. The metro version was to make sure windows locks people into using the windows store.
The whole thing is a security nightmare. Once they hack your email password, they hacked your computer. You can set up a local account, then that makes metro ui pointless. Because the whole reason for that was to show case window store apps.
The list goes on, it is a nightmare from the user point of view.
But I have noted that when you feel threaten you insult instead of talking.
