macgvr: I couldn't agree more. I too started in the DOS days so using a keyboard is not a problem for me but my users aren't going to like it. With every new generation of Windows things have improved or at least it was an honest attempt at making things easier. What they've done with Win8 for the desktop is, to put it bluntly, stupid, a big step backwards. From my POV they should not have removed the functionality of the desktop/start menu. I love the enhanced performance and other features but the UI is ridiculous. Business users/IT Administrators will be avoiding this like the plague unless they do something about this mess of a UI.
