Re: Windows 8 Discussion

I'm still skeptical about removing the start menu completely, I really think Microsoft should include the option to turn it back on in the final release. But saying that I've been using Windows 8 on my netbook since the developer release last year and I haven't really missed it. I normally use the start menu to simply search for the program I'm looking for and you can still just type on the new start screen to search in the same way. Apart from that the Metro interface is mostly hidden.

I know I'm probably in the minority but I love the ribbon and I love how they've added it to explorer. Also the new task manager is a huge improvement, finally you can see which programs are using the hard disk!

What I am excited for is the hybrid machines, having a tablet and netbook in one would be fantastic. As long as the prices aren't too steep...
