    to me all the windows are the same .. i remember windows vista recovery mode run on windows xp. i guess they just change the name and rename the files by adding little more tweaks!

    lol, 1 day after release we had 4 machines in to have windows 8 taken off and 7 put back on.... also sold 3 or 4 copies as well despite best efforts advising against

    I have been using it on my 10.1 inch gigabyte touchscreen tablet where browsing the web with the IE8 app is quite nice since the touch gestures all fall in the right place for how I hold the tablet .. after that its still a massive fail for me.

    Interested to know if anyone using it full time yet and what they think.
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    yup, but not as we know it, its the [formally known as]metro app search thingy, where you are just as likely to end up in an [FKA]Metro app as you are back on the desktop

    seriously I am getting more puzzled each day as to what exactly they were smoking...

    All you do to find a file is click the windows button (takes you to metro screen) and type in what you're looking for and it gives you a search. Another way to access this search is putting your cursor in the top right or bottom right, a charms bar will pop up, and then clicking the search icon. It's extremely fast (unlike the old search feature which failed). I've been using windows 8 full time for almost 3 months and it's pretty great. Computer starts up from hibernate in 10 ish seconds, I have the metro screen where i can add various apps (i like the messenger & weather) and then I still have the desktop with classic My Computer renamed just Computer. Looking forward to getting the tablet, they're pretty great. A tablet with a desktop and sub ports? Um heck yeah.

    yup, I do know how it works, my question is more of a why ? ... a better search was always welcome but could have been provided with the old interface..

    Anyway its good for business, though rather than the usual upgrade business we get we are getting lots of downgrade business

    Complain much? I mean, if anything we should be complaining about having to stare at the same interface for the past 15 years.

    Pressing a single key and then just freely typing = extremely fast search interface. If I'm looking for something, it's because I want to find it (shocking), all I care about is how long it takes to find what I'm looking for and open it.

    and STILL they don't get it..... http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05..._start_button/

    yes we want the start button back, but that ain't the start button now is it ?
    boot direct to desktop is good, v good, that and a proper start menu is all windows 8 actually needs , or ever needed (apart from touch-enabling some win95 dialogs they still have kicking around)

    so they listened to 'us' , and gave us another way of getting back to (TIFKA)Metro, the very thing we were trying to avoid... and its taken how long ? classic shell and others managed it before 8 was even released...

    Since 8 came out the ratio of our sales of 8 vs 7 (not including laptop sales) are 9 to 1, we sell 1 copy of Windows 8 for every 9 copies of Windows 7, we have removed 8 and (re)installed 7 on more systems than we have sold copies of 8.
    We are a small computer store of course and yes we do push windows 7 over 8 , but most of our clients want 7 anyway, we don't need to push too hard, for laptops preinstalled with 8 we put classic shell (or similar) on when we can, not something I really want to do but man it helps with the endless phone calls
