I agree with BradWright. Classic shell works great. Also the fact that it takes one click to get to the desktop. The Metro ui is basically he start menu and as soon as you click any program, this interface goes to the background for good.
I don't understand the complaining about the metro ui and the guys, not only replying to this topic, but many others. Have none of you EVER used a tweak program to make your XP or win7 run differently?? Would you really not install this OS just because you have to click once to get your desktop? Are you people really that lazy?
Funny that the same people bitching about the situation are the same ones checking out these topics daily. If Microsoft products suck so bad, buy a mac and join a mac-only forum.
The metroui/start menu was the least of my problems. I actually cant get many drivers to work, and some of my programs don't work in windows 8. Oh well.
