    Windows 8 enterprise x64


    Of all the Windows 8 annoyances ( and I have quite a few ) , the Start button is the less of them, there is not need for replacement. If I look at what I use on my PC with Windows 8

    Chrome
    Word
    Excel
    Photoshop, to crop pics that I post here and other place
    Vmware Workstation
    Remote Desktop Manager

    those are all thing running on desktop and I have a taskbar icon for them , the rest is not that a big deal to hit the windows key and search them on the Start Page

    For shut down, well my PC run 24/7, but in case "ctr alt del " and the power is located in the bottom right.

    The Start menu is back but by other providers. Start8 Stardock has siezed an opportunity to sell a solution. There are other free solutions that people will find like Classic Shell. MS will believe they are right because these solutions will quiet the noise.
