    what about all the other shells.
    i sure they will all add up to a larger number ,but that don't make it the first thing to do with win8 before the poster even gives it a try for a few weeks or so

    We are only into 3 days this week what about all the other shells and the ones that upgraded back to Windows 7.
    i downloaded that app...i tried it so i could offer support and advice on it to windows 8 users so theirs one less that downloaded and isn't using it, of all my customers that bought windows 8 none have taken the classic shell even when offered, because i showed them how to use metro, a bit of knowledge goes a long way.

    aren't you jumping the start line yourself? while you dislike metro that is your choice but you should not try to manipulate others like pebbles into missing out on aspects of windows 8 they may actually want to use and just don't know it yet.

    by saying metro is outright crap is actually a personal opinion and not fact as you see it, offering it to him as a choice is what you should have done letting him no the option was there would have been sufficent, instead you pretty much told him his new pc was crap and he doesn't even have it yet, way to let him enjoy christmas.

    all posts by me are personal opinions or i'm just arguing for the sake of it just to give the opposing poster something to talk about, i enjoy a good debate but i don't always debate a point that i myself believe in, often times i actually share the posters sentiment just not how they go about delivering said post.

    The desktop is now a portal of the Modern UI to run your Win32 legacy programs as one always has.
    Sorry but that is a daft statement. The desktop where you run the productive program's, win32 or win64, including the new version of Office. There are no serious applications that run in Metro, it is the toy interface for the children to play with. Hell why call it windows when the modern metro UI does't have any? It's FullScreen8. That's why the desktop is there so you can actually do some work with it and it is a very good OS when you do.

    All serious work is carried out in proper program's run from the desktop. Do you seriously think there will be a metro version of Creative Suite, Autocad, sony Vegas, Avid or any other professional software. Metro is what is technically called a dead end.

    Win 8 is a disaster for computer users, third party apps like ClassicShell make it somewhat useable, but still can not connect the many USB devices (like printers and such) I have on our local network..I think MS is going to have a lot of complaints from customers when they find their brand new printer don't work with WIN8.
    XP and WIN7 are good, Vista was also a disaster for other reasons.
    WIN8 is only liked by "tablet" users, and in my opinion that's what it is, an OS for a cell phone.
    Why can't MS offer 2 "current" OS's....one for users that do development stuff with a lot of file manipulation like XP or WIN7.And one for tablets with the "metro" interface like WIN8 where the focus is on "apps", messaging and pictures..

I'm sorry, but i am really inept and having a hard time getting to know Win8. I just purchased a new laptop which came with a free 30 day trial of Microsoft Office. I had intended to set my laptop up with 2 users - both me, but one for work and one for personal. So what i did was...
