Quoting starkers, reply 9So, for all there is... er, was to dislike about Win 8, most of it unfounded, there is a lot to like about it.
WOW!!! Somebody agreed with me!!
Okay, so I'm gonna take a screenshot of this... for nostalgia sake... and to prove it once happened.
Yeah, I've been so engrossed in using/setting up Win 8 to how I like it, I've not bothered to install win 7 on my upstairs rig as yet. I mean, there's no hurry to do that, and I will get aroud to it, but probably in the latter half of next week when I've a bit more spare time. I have a bit of yard work and stuff too around the place first, and I have my mother coming to stay for a few days before she scoots off the UK again for another visit.
Anyhow, I've been to the app store for a few handy items and have set up Metro to be quite useful with various apps and links to the various places I frequent, like Wikipedia, etc. I have my tiles set up in categories to make searching for stuff easier and the interface more functional, so all in all, it is working out quite well. I mean, I still boot directly to the desktop and spend the majority of my time there, but it's just as easy to click on the Metro button as it is the regular start button when I want to find things.
Now I'm just waiting on Stardock to release a Win 8 compatible version of Windowblinds... then I'll be as happy as a pig in a poke, though I am hoping Neil and the crew are working on an app to customize the Metro interface, because it's in serious need of some Stardock loving.
