I agree with dullonien. My only complaint so far, (and hopefully fixed), is that if you click on an already open program, it won't open a new instance as it would on the old start menu, but just bring it on focus. This comes to be annoying when opening Command prompt, or notepad, or calculator. It's not a killer, but it would be nice to have that back. Another problem, but not due to Microsoft, is that the Metro start screen, you want to side scroll to navigate, with your mouse. Perfect.. and it works.. but if you have a Logitech mouse, with the driver installed (setPoint), then it stop working, because of this issue: http://pretentiousname.com/setpoint_hwheel/index.html Logitech makes sucky drivers, that we all know.. never really bothered me, until Windows 8. Hopefully they'll fix it, but I highly doubt it. Another problem that I think people have with Metro, is that the default layout sucks.. liek really. Not even a folder is pinned to it. So it makes accessing Document, Downloads and so on, a real pain. But once you fix the layout like I did: It becomes much better. Also the first tile, (in my case desktop) is the one will execute by default if you hit Enter. So hitting that key will get me to the desktop.
