lol, once you figure out how to use it and where stuff is (yes, a little learning curve for people who arent good with computers) its pretty damned easy.


I have no issues with the lay out and how to use it. Its pretty easy once you mess with it for about 15 minutes.

Multitasking is virtually impossible.

Damn people, change is not bad. You had to learn how to use windows the first time. I personally love windows 8 and have no issue multitasking. I can't wait to have virtually the same os on all my electronic devices.

It's not always good either.

Change is not bad.

It's also not always necessary.

My PC is not a tablet or a smartphone. So therefore, I can do without a tablet OS on my PC.

I gave it a full week before giving up. I know I'm a power user, but I just got really tired of having to hunt through five pages of scrolling with my mouse just to find a program I want to use. I know you can pin things, but I use such a variety of apps that it'd take me forever to find things.

Not to mention that Metro is a completely different ecosystem than the core Windows OS. It'd be one thing if they were fluidly merged, but switching back and forth all the time is just stupid.

Guess if you put applications you use on the quick launch or desktop you don't really have to use it?
That's what I do. I still get the benefits of the fast startup and use my old 7 style desktop.

Yeah, the drawn password thing is ridiculous for a desktop without a touch sensitive screen.

Just start typing the name of the app and it comes up. No need to scroll and hunt.

Or you can learn to adapt to a faster method. Using the mouse to hunt and click is time consuming.

I suppose if you have trouble with the concept of alphabetization, you're right.

if you click on the right corner and hit the search button EVERYTHING pops up. ALl your apps/programs and everything. Imo,i think its faster then the start button menu. Maybe not by much, but its faster and everything is there you need.

Yeah its just really goofy to have two completely different interfaces like this. I keep wondering what I am supposed to do with the tablet like apps with a laptop.

This touchpad swipe to toggle between the desktop and metro is also driving me nuts. Need to shut it off.
