Since 75% of business needs require tying this interface stinks! These over-sized "icons" are a giant step backward and results in a horribly ugly & cluttered screen.
I use "Free Launch Bar" at the bottom of the screen to launch programs it is the BEST and easiest method! The "start screen" in "8" isn't big enough to hold many of these monster icons and I have tons of programs.
I'll stick to Window's 7 and hope Microsoft comes to their senses with Windows 9 or a LOT of us will end up using the horrible "Apple" products.
