Re: Hate Windows 8?
They didn't really take away the start button.
The metro screen IS the start menu.
You can access the metro screen either by leaving it as the standard desktop. or by pressing the windows key. I haven't tried ctrl+escape but this usually serves just like a windows key.
Or by moving the mouse to where the start button should be, (bottom left) where a little icon of the metro screen, (your start menu) will appear.
clicking the start menu or pressing the windows key takes you to the metro screen where all your apps are laid out as icons.
now the really funny thing is.
I can see MS in the future deciding that grouping icons is a good idea.
and so allowing application folders just like the iphone/ipad has.
then we'll have a screen where application icons live in little boxes that can be expanded/contracted. and launched by clicking on them.
we'll be able to put the icon tiles any where in our program manager (sorry metro screen), and simply use a scroll bar to move across the screen to see the apps that we placed outside the screen.
and when this OS is release, I hope they call it windows three to the power of two instead of windows 9.
because it's going to pretty much look and feel exactly like a modernised version of windows 3.11!

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
