      Is there a way to disable metro for Win 8 Pro? This would make it much more suitable for the business world.

      On a productivity desktop, there is no need for fullscreen-only "apps" or a start menu replacement that blocks your entire desktop and has horizontal scrolling.

      I'm impressed with the security advances under the hood, but the UI, and moreover the Microsoft-contrived removal of the classic UI as an option, makes Win8 a very difficult sell to management. Microsoft had better wake up and smell the coffee; it's time for a Classic UI option from Microsoft themselves, not just 15 third-party vendors.
