One nice feature I liked in the explorer search is the 'search ribbon' options. You can filter out based on file type (Ex: Search only for folders). I don't mean 'arrange by type'. Don't remember if its there in W7.
Yea, I like the ribbon options as well! It is a nice improvement. The win explorer search is much better than the start menu search.
I still get the same search issue with the iorbit start menu and along with the many other win 8 start menus. They give the same results as the normal metro results.

The OS really isnt bad once you tailor it to yourself. SP1 should smooth some things out as well.
Boot straight to the desktop, windows start menu is back. Really never see metro unless I open it on my other screen. The new Task Manager and taskbar works great
Only thing that sucks is no disabling desktop composition, but still uses less v-ram then aero did.
Also Start8 gives you the same start menu as windows 7 and the search is the same as windows 7, and works great at that.
I dont get the same search as I did with windows 7 with start 8. I'm fine with the metro start menu now. I don't mind it. In my use I actually do like it better now that I have given it a chance. I just don't like that the search results layout is changed for the start menu.
Pokki is my favorite new start menu so far. I use it with metro.
