Start8 is by far the best solution you can get. It will create you a custom start button which you can click to launch the Full screen metro start screen.

Does Start8 and the rest of the Start button replacements work on RTM? This will get handy for my relatives whose pc motto is "just describe the damn thing so I can click it".

You can hit the Windows key on the keyboard to switch between them, can't get more permanent than that ;)

The OS is no doubt fluid. Even running on a bad Virtual Machine everything was pretty fast besides mouse input lag. I can see this as a great OS for Tablet users. But for the Desktop, the features are just gimmicks. Still, having MetroTwit to the side of my screen and then the fully functioning Desktop was quite fun to use.

Oh, and the Windows key is used a lot in Windows 8. You'll need to get used to it if you want to get around it fast.

I've always been a little annoyed by the colorful Windows flag (embedded in that super-glossy orb) in the corner. Personally, I like the task bar much better now.
