Too much work
When I first tried "8" i wasn't a big fan - the missing start button was one of the big reasons. But what Microsoft - in their infinite stupidity - won't provide, others will. I just installed pokki - works like a charm (so far anyways!). I get my "start button" back, access to all my apps including a favorite apps list, control panel, library and more. Until I can afford a touch screen monitor, I learned the keyboard shortcuts (windows + d for the desktop - for instance) and now I find I'm actually enjoying Win 8. With a dual screen setup, I have the tiles UI on the left screen and the desktop on the right screen at all times - the best of both worlds. Personally, I still feel that the new interface has some blatant "issues" and many of the apps are too "simple" and bordering on juvenile, but in that case, I just run the not-tiled version of the program (Skype for instance). Done deal! Eventually, Microsoft will see the error of their ways and give the power users back some of the power they need, such as running multiple Windows on a single desktop at once (all being visible to some extent), Otherwise we probably will end up with just another "ME"
