    The power icon could actually go to the left of the User Tile, and shift over the tile and user name over a bit, so it's drop down list.

    The search box and the power icon on the start screen were two things I was complaining that needed to be on the home screen, I mentioned it should be exactly where you put it ....... glad other people feel the same way! It really does make the experience that much more usable.

    Your Interpretation Metro: even went a step further, I think these ideas truthfully would make Windows 8 far superior to the competition.

    More like Windows 8: Improved edition (Sounds like Windows 98: Second Edition). Much more usable for mouse and keyboard users (Those who have been using the operating system from the beginning.)
