    Start Button?


    Click image for larger version
    The removal of the Start Button has caused enough issues, but I have recently sat down with my aunt to do a test. She attempted to search for a friend on "Facebook" without any browser direct links other than the Metro IE 10. She attempted first to use the mail app, and then found that she could search. (no idea what charms is) I felt bad, like maybe others where having the same issue with there PC's. I showed her Charms and she immediately found how to do almost everything.

    Charms is a full replacement to me, but to the public, they just don't know what hit them.

    I don't think the public knew what hit them when Windows 95 came out!
