Will there be a Home version with the metro start menu, and a Business version with the normal start button?
I've been testing win8 with all our applications that normally run on our laptops, the metro start screen is cluttered, very difficult to find anything, this will be the same with everything. For example: when you install Office 2010 on win8, you will not only get the applications, such as Word and Excel, but you will get all the tools too, tools that no-one uses. This happens for all the applications I've tried installing. Once you install something, have fun trying to find it.
Time is money for business. We don't want our efficient staff to be less productive by just finding the programs they want to use. If Microsoft is going to keep in this metro direction for business, I will be forced to look for another solution: Apple or Ubuntu.
BTW, I visited a Microsoft complex when Vista had been out for a little over a year, they were all using XP, shows how much faith Microsoft has in their product. I grantee you, no business is going to move to win8 with that metro start screen. Time is money, and it takes too much time.
