just install the free "Classic Shell" and then use the Classic Shell's option to "disable active corners". Disabling active corners will prevent the annoying Win8 pop ups from affecting the desktop. Classic Shell boots directly to the desktop and you never have to see the Metro interface at all.

It is not necessary to "disable activate corners" for bypassing the Metro start-up.

I'm convinced that any software that works in Win7 will work the same way in Win8.

Even got 32 bit software working that was designed for about 10 years back.
The latest software update for that program was at 2007
But as that was not designed for "Microsoft Certified" programs, for installing you have to boot Win8 in another mode, to bypass the control of it. (Reboot by pushing Shift key at same time ----> you come to other boot options).
