    I think someone at MS took offense to Win7 being likened to a "Fisher Price" OS and decided to actually make a FP OS :D

    The things I don't like about Windows 8 Consumer Preview is the lack of a Start Menu which means no clicking on the Start Menu to search for Programs. In the Metro interface It won't be easy for novices to find the hidden menu on the right side of the screen, I find it a bit annoying keeping the mouse in the right spot. In the Metro interface there's also a hidden bar on the left side of screen which shows all the apps. The only way I could figure out how to quit a metro app is to ALT F4 it. It does boot up quite fast on my PC though. I don't think I'll be using the metro interface very often.
