Only reason I got it was because I'm contemplating getting a Surface and I wanted to be familiar with the UI.
First off, it won't take long to get used to the new system. If you don't like the metro interface, all you have to do is click the desktop tile and you are right back to the old look minus the start button.
quote:No. You can use the old desktop, but it doesn't have a search option. If the program you want to use isn't on the desktop, then you need to use the search charm to find it.
so you are saying this will allow me to have my start menu.
