    I can see how if it works for you - then using classic shell and avoiding the metro stuff would be fine.
    Hybrid boot helps a lot. My laptop boots in about 8 seconds. 14 seconds or so without hybrid boot and around 18 seconds with windows 7. With Windows 7, if I jumped right to Explorer, it would be progress bars on my mapped network drives, with Windows 8, it's just mapped drives. Granted it only took a few seconds of waiting before they would be connected, so not end of the world.

    As so often it's a matter of taste. I like and use PS ISE, using Command Prompt only when I need screenshots of it to a post or tutorial.
    Thanks for that tip Kari.

    Sorry I can't Rep you though.
    You are welcome, no need for rep here .

    The PowerShell ISE beats Command Prompt and Linux Terminal any time. Don't forget you can also use traditional commands in PS and PS ISE, totally replacing the Command Prompt.

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), Linux Mint 17.1 MATE (64 bit)

    I hardly ever have to use the Command Prompt in Windows (an occasional "ping" and "attrib").

    I have to use the Terminal in Linux more often.
    However, if I do something often enough (or it is obscure, so I'm likely to forget the command) I create a script.
