    At last - a Proper Desktop in win8 !!!


    I have already used wdp explorer in wrp, with some success (pe build). Never got round to ironing out the glitches.

    Now, Trihiy has gone further.

    It is almost perfect.

    Boot direct to desktop - proper start menu - aero - no start screen at all- no fairy wand- start menu search box works fine .

    Fantastic!

    Some very minor glitches. When he gets those sorted, it will be great.

    Wow, that is quite a display of drives!
    Anyway, I think this desktop is not so bad too.

    LOL.

    If you like the metro stuf - that is fine.

    Those who don't want it on a decent machine - the solution is very close.

    You can even delete the humongous apps directory - not needed.

    Not to sound like a newbie, but -

    What is it?

    Where is it?

    Why doesn't Google know about it?

    I guess I just will never get the humor.
    I do not understand Laugh Out Loud LOL for the desktop.
    I think the default 8 desk to quite useful and efficient.
    Most people will not need 17 drives, virtual or otherwise.
    How is the pic below humongous?

    I have seen the online analysis from many others and critics.
    I find nothing to LOL about for this.

    Yes, my system is very minimal.
    And I can see the need for the Classic Shell and others that will develop down the road.
    They are very useful for a proper desktop and personal preference.

    If I hear that word "counter intuitive !~ yikes , I will explode"

    All kinds of customizations are coming.
    Others will say my view is from a pea brain,
    but my view works.

    I have seen the Start Screen compared to the AOL start screen,
    but AOL was very successful for quite a few years.
