Martin Brinkmann over at gHacks.net has just written a nice article “Going straight to the Windows 8 desktop”.

I read it, and if you’re planning to update/upgrade to W8, I think you should as well.

Start8 was mentioned prominently:

Myself, I don't mind the new start menu in Windows 8.  I use the new start page like a big old start menu and I have all my program icons there.  Using the Windows Key I can close or open the start menu anytime I want, a much better way to access your programs than the old start menu.  I work in the desktop mode most all the time but if I need to access the control panal or other system items I have shortcuts setup for them so I do not have to do a search and click to get to them.  At first I hated the new start menu but after a few days I found a better way and it works very well for me.
