Review of old "gripes":

1. you wrecked full screen! (700 posts)
win8 is almost ALL fullscreen / "metro ie" is total full screen kiosk.

2. You took away up!!!
Up is back.

3. Put windows explorer in to media center - make it an optional UI
well its not optional ...and there really isnt a file explorer in it - but its close

4. Frontpage name has a bad stigma - please change it
..and they did to Expression. good name. but they made frontpage like dreamweaver - too hard for most bus customers / black interface / scary - still good tho

5 Put back cool bars in IE -X2 -  let us break it into pieces and put the pieces where - or back together how - we want.
This wasnt done. Im assuming because they did not want tech support dealing with floating /embedded toolars / sections IE versions (id have loved it - tools on the bottom!

funny to think about all this again - and NOT ever again. ha
