    Let's get back to the point - which probably needs restating after that little detour:

    Simple, get the Start Page out of my PC, allow me to use a tablet for it, more options less hassle

    Activate boot Windows 7 and the Update at same time is cheating the license. We have numerous treads where numerous times Bring paste or link the EULA .....

    and again your are Hi-Jacking the tread with something not related at all.
    And again you're not understanding what you're reading and quoting out of context.

    They need the tablet operating system so no one really can fault them for it. What they should have done was allow the desktop to work on it's own. They should allow users to use only the desktop if they wish or only tablet if they wish. They removed a lot of easy access points on the desktop. They replaced it with actions that don't feel right on a mouse. The interface on the desktop wasn't so well done. Too flat, not enough zune desktop software (the earlier middle ground version). Whatever they fixed that we can't see is fine. But what we can see I feel is badly done. I don't mind that they removed the start menu but they could have definitely put a directory or menu that isn't hidden from view somewhere.

    Because different people use computers differently and are not affected the same way.
