Not withstanding the much maligned metro interface on Win8, which can be replaced with third

Many thanks in advance


AS near as I can tell it is Win7 optimised for touch at the expense of desktop users.

Nope, works just fine on a desktop with a mouse and keyboard.  It is a learning curve for those that chained themselves to the Start button, but it is easily functional without it.  I, personally, don't miss the Start button on my desktop.

While the new tile screen doesn't bother me, I do still work mostly in the desktop which is just one click away.  It would be nice if they gave the option to boot to desktop first for those the prefer that.
