Re: Fortune ?
"i won't buy another box until start menu appears and metro is switch offable at install"
Which of course is exactly what will happen. Eventually.
Win 8 is obviously going to be another Vista and MS will waste a huge amount of time and money telling us that it's great and we will all ignore them and about 2 years down the line they will come up with something (Win 9? Guess not - it's about time for them to change to a new naming scheme, no?) that allows you to completely conceal the Metro section and we will all ask ourselves why they could not have done this with Win 8...
I'm past caring really, but I'm certainly going to stick with Win 7 (& XP) on the desktop.
