Windows 8 boots straight to desktop and if you want to get to "Computer" you just need to right click where the start button used to be and click on "file explorer"
It's two clicks, the same amount as you have to do with a start menu.
With the pre-release copy I only used metro once a day. With the final copy I don't even remember it's existence unless someone mentions it.
Same here. I upgraded to Win8 and I really don't understand what all this 'the metro UI sucks' is about. Do like me, don't use it and go straight to the desktop
But one thing is certain, the reboot time is unbelievable, leaves win7 in the dust (on my machine at least) everything else is basically windows 7 without a start button. It takes a little while to get used to it that's true, but it's not a big problem IMHO.
Yeah, but Metro loses in those due to how much further you have to move the mouse.
seriously? I've heard crappy arguments b4, but this one is beyond ridiculous.
I found myself having to use those silly charms all the time. Control panel, network settings, wireless connections, shutting down...
Seriously, why couldn't they just incorporate the charms into the start menu... seems so unnecessary to have their own menu.
They are in the start menu, that was his point
The start menu is still there, just the button has been removed ....Edited by yannickhk - 11/28/12 at 11:15am
