    And they aren't there....

    That and I keep putting the cursor in the lower right corner to shutdown

    Lucky for me I use a shutdown short cut for both OS. I do keep pecking away at the Windows key though. In Windows 7 it brings up the start MENU so its not all bad. I still kind of chuckle to myself when I do it.

    Windows 8

    As much as I love Windows 8, the report seems to be a stretch if you look at the mixed reviews for Windows 8. Though the performance improvements are evident (at least in my PC), in terms of usability not so much. There is quite a learning curve for new users to really get comfortable on how to navigate and learn the gestures which I think is where much of the frustration in Windows 8 comes from.

    Personally, I don't see myself going back to Windows 7 as I feel I'm more productive in Windows 8 and I haven't had any frustrating issues with it thus far.
