rumor is that start button and boot to desktop is coming back that is great but....

biggest problem with windows 8 is metro and start screen, they really should bring back the start menu and let the user choose if they want to use the new giant unoptimized, user un-friendly metro interface or the old proven fast, responsible minimalistic start menu.

I have windows 8 on one PC and I still haven't found a useful metro app, its sad that third party companies are fixing OS and MS can't.

Startdock managed to run metro apps in window, again something that MS should do, there is no reason why a simple app that has almost no options require to take up entire screen on 22-24- or even 27 inch screen. On tablet it makes sence, but not on PC.
