If you're going to object to Windows8, object to Metro don't object to the demise of the start menu that nobody used and which had long since outlived its utility. The start menu was crap and good riddance.
LOL, nobody used? With all due respect I think you need to speak for yourself on this one.
I have no problem with Metro. In fact I was a big proponent for exactly that before MS even hinted they were going to do something like that. I think it is great for tablets. However I was never for wreaking the desktop in the process.
And I'm not saying they should remove Metro from Windows 8. It should however be an option and if it takes off, then great, we can move in that direction. However if it doesn't take off, MS has also destroyed the tried-and-proven desktop that they have been refining over the last 20 years. For what exactly?
