Swipe from the top or bottom and you get these things. They go away when you don't want them. They are there when you need them.

That's why I love the charms bar. Yes, I know a lot of people here who hates it. I'll say it again. I love it. It's there when you need it. It goes away when you don't need it.

At the same time, I realize that most people can't tell something exists without seeing it. This is why on more than one occasion I have to tell people to scroll down or scroll right to get what they need.
You don't get it. People who hates Win 8 are those who are using it primarily on a desktop. All the stuff you said are based on your biased opinion because you are using a touchscreen most of the time.
I've also said I use my device as a desktop as well. I just plug it into my big-ass monitor and use the mouse and keyboard. When I do that, I spend most of my time in the desktop. Which has been my point all along. When I'm using it as a desktop, I absolutely don't feel like I'm being forced to use metro interface. When I use the touchscreen, I absolutely don't feel like I'm being forced to use the desktop interface.

So, this goes back to my original point, which I've been making all along. I use windows 8 in both interfaces, and windows 8 works just as well in both.

People on here sound like the desktop has been permanently removed.
