    You can't tag a tag. You will have to do better than that.

    Cokie is a great feed man.

    While that will generate lots of work (at least for me), removing Windows 8 from peoples computers who tolerate it simply because those shell programs give them the ability to use 8 productively, I hope they don't do that.

    Hm, I wonder how that's going to work for people with just 8 and not 8 Pro? And then, what if you have Media center installed? Is 8.1 going to replace 8 or just update it? Is there an 8.1 and an 8.1 Pro version?

    That even addresses the start button/menu issue.
    That's going to be a little difficult when the ultimate goal is to remove the desktop completely eventually. In the meantime there are a dozen 3rd party options to accomplish a default boot to desktop.

    Three guesses which is the better PR to put out now.
    but what about the customer like me ,who likes win8 start the way it is ,i have a free msnd acct so i got win8 free ,but like it so much i would buy it in a heart beat ,i hope they can add the start button you want and leave the one i like alone at the same time !

    Not sure why you say that I want. It's not about me - it is about the market.

    The many who are asking for a desktop os are not asking for the metro stuff to be taken away from those who want it.

    I don't think MS have the remotest intention of removing the metro stuff. It is there to get the users into MS online services. That is where MS see their future - huge rewards for them.

    We can't know how many are tolerating 8 only because of the 3rd party shell programs. It could be a large proportion. MS will have a very good idea. They won't be in a hurry to tell us, for obvious reasons.

    Metro isn't going anywhere. They "might" let you hide it or avoid it if you want to stay on the desktop as much as possible but they aren't going to strip it out.

    I'll tell you what would work for me. Add two more options in the "Turn Windows Features on or off", Metro & Windows Classic Start Menu.
