Once I banished Metro/Modern, Win 8 is just fine and it strikes me as very much like Win 7. The lack of a Start button doesn't even bug me at this point.
/still flirt with Linux, via the KDE desktop.

242 is a lot more than I have. But I guess if you organize them in subfolders of your main desktop folder, then they are manageable. But once you have that desktop folder, I would use it for a toolbar. Then they are accessible from anywhere - no need to go back to the desktop.

my point was that people want to find things quick and a list of 242 items is a lot ,just saying
not sure how many are in the list it created on mine and iam not about to count them
Still going strong and still enjoying the OS every single day!
