    What is the point, if you stop the Metro Style? It will be like Windows 7, but without start button.

    I will put it as a main OS, I do not trust on virtual machines, and subscribe later

    How could it change the place where windows tries to look for your mouse to activate the options menu?
    the one with settings, search, share and devices? because it's in a hard place in between of my two monitors.

    Initial USB install took about 10 - 12 mins on to a spinner drive not counting setup and mouse froze in lower right corner of start menu where the new small zoom button is but since installing updates and graphics drivers problem has gone away. Also the weather app is more detailed with graphs and maps.

    there are 4 updates in marketplace as well.

    Btw, 2 hours in and I already changed too much. (updates, softwares, group policies)
    And boom! BSOD

    Though it was an opprtunity to test Windows 8 self-restore. Lost all installs =/

    Also they added new option for AppLocker: Packgaed app rules. Apparently it is for metro apps.
