This is completely ass-backwards. With Windows 7 if I want to start a calculator, or Wordpad, or Paint, I just click on Start->All Programs->Accessories menu. Now you're saying with Windows 8 I would need to grab the keyboard, then type in the name of the program? How is this an improvement over simply being able to click on what I want? Not to mention that that same "search" feature won't work with my emails and other documents, like it does now?
Windows 7 is cleaner, neater, and faster. I don't have to have a million things pinned to my task bar, or icons all over the desktop. They're right there in my start menu where they should be, when I need them. Not to mention that some of our enterprise apps don't support pinning to the task bar anyway, and with it's myriad other issues, Windows 8 will never work on our corporate environment. Although I suppose our cleaning ladies would enjoy billing us for 50 extra boxes of monitor wipes each month... :-/
