    I just upgraded via ISO and all my programs and settings are still there, as far as I've seen so far.

    The fact that I still have to use Start8 to get a decent start menu experience annoys me. I don't see the point in having the Start menu take you to the same screen that you see by default on startup. That's ridiculous.
