Don't get it.

Maybe it's supposed to tell you to pin apps instead of ranting over the start screen/start menu that you barely use anymore?

It's simple. People who are for Metro say "Just pin your apps to the taskbar if you don't want to use the Start screen". And someone using many apps (and hates Metro) is going to end up in a situation exactly like this.

Metro lovers JUST DON'T get it. A lot of people find opening the full screen Start "Menu" to search for or open programs JARRING. Instead of the clean, small and elegant menu like before, you now are forced to see it fill up the ENTIRE screen! And the bigger the monitor, the worse the effect!

Metro haters JUST DON'T get it that having the ENTIRE screen is much better since you get more results per page and that you can't focus on the start menu and the rest of your screen unless you have 2 brains!

I don't care what you anti-Windows 8 users use. I just want you all to shut up and quit whining. Don't like it? Don't use it. /lamejokethread

Time to break out the Warwagon score again.

This gets a WTF out of 5 Warwagons.

His post is incomprehensible even by his standards.

Ok let me explain the joke. In EVERY thread all the pro metro users tell the anti Metro users.... If you don't like the Metro screen "It's simple!!! Just pin the apps you use to your taskbar!"

Well said. The emotion that some threads are getting to (Neowin included) are like Microsoft are tying users up and forcing Windows 8 upon them. Nobody is. You like Windows 7? Fine - keep it. You like Windows 8? Fine - buy it on release day. Nobody is forcing anybody to use Windows 8. Hey, stay on XP if it floats your boat!

Seriously, no one is forcing metro down your throat. I've been using Windows 8 since before developer preview and the addition of start screen in DP for me was just a more intuitive way to launch apps. I don't use metro apps, other than maybe Mail or Metrotwit. I haven't visited the Store in don't know how long. For me, Windows 8 is just Windows 7 a lot faster and better.

It's hilarious...

Also I'm pretty sure you can still put icons on your desktop and half of the icons on that taskbar are random junk ones you probably don't even use Notepad, Paint, Sync Center, Bit-locker, RegEdit... Really? :)

Ah, ok. So I should pin more than 100 apps to the quick launch bar? And besides, there's way more than just pinning apps that's wrong with Win 8. Just going to stick with Win7.

And I never said any such thing.

And I have to ask why anyone *insists* on using the Start menu (even in Windows 7) for any and every application, as opposed to even *desktop shortcuts* (which goes back to Windows 9x/NT 4.x) unless they have a major case of CDS (Clean Desktop Syndrome). However, I have noticed one thing about those that have this condition - they are resistant to change with a fervor that borders on fanaticism. (No - it's not unique to Windows users; I've seen CDS sufferers running every graphical OS and desktop environment under the sun (and most under the moon as well); I put them in the same group as other fanatics - "AVOID".)

for the last time, windows 8 default search is worse than the ones in vista or 7.

Type in power... where is how to change power settings in 8? Oh you have to use the mouse to get that?

Type in display... the same results

The search is separated.... Metro needs a lot of tweaks, and changes way to much from the way the system was used before.

I'm looking for a way to group the search results, and make metro act as my desktop background. It needs a 'status bar'.

How can you prefer this :

http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-blogs-components-weblogfiles/00-00-01-29-43-metablogapi/3581.Fig_2D00_2_2D002D002D00_All_2D00_Programs_2D00_in_2D00_the_2D00_Windows_2D00_7_2D00_Start_2D00_menu_5F00_thumb_5F00_5E72E680.png

Other that : (note that it's been slightly modified in the RTM, but you got the idea)

http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-blogs-components-weblogfiles/00-00-01-29-43-metablogapi/7433.Page5_2D00_1_5F00_thumb_5F00_1548C5BD.png

Both are accessible through a single click and one shows more results than the other, guess which one : blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/10/11/reflecting-on-your-comments-on-the-start-screen.aspx

Learn the new shortcuts, it's not that hard to memorize them.
