Another "I hate Windows 8" thread. And another Windows 8 thread derailed by hate.
I understand people who want to remove features that they perceive as "getting in the way", or that are always on the screen, or that are essential. Like the start screen. I love the start screen, but I can understand others that don't.
However, I don't understand people who react the way you do to simple things that are placed out of the way. You want to get rid of the ridiculous charm bar? Why? It's a hidden menu. It's very unobtrusive.
Next you'll be complaining about right click menus. If you don't like right click menus, don't right click!
Exactly; I was baffled when I read the thread. The charm bar really isn't in the way and is very handy as users will know how to search, share something, access settings right away because it's the same charm bar for each app. Would you rather have it being called "Windows Live Connectbar" or "Superbar Metro" and add to all the poor brand names Microsoft has had over the years. They're making everything simpler and more accessible. A mail app is simply called "Mail", A PDF reader is called "Reader" etc etc. Charm bar sounds good and is easy to remember. Much better choice than "Metro apps" or Windows RT in my opinion.
If you (OP) created this thread with the notion of gathering attention, congratulations
if otherwise, get used to it, maybe try out a few apps?
