What's wrong with someone modifying their OS to their liking?
and get rid of all those nice Metro transition effects when going into your start screen. Just use the darn OS like it was intended or stay with Windows 7, it really is that simple, and if you like the enhancements that come with Windows 8, simply use it.
I myself, am on Windows 7, I cannot for the life of me get a hold of a license, otherwise I would likely get rid of Windows 7, and just use Windows 8.

What about you just stop telling others what to do with their own PCs.

I searched the hole web to find an answer how to bypass Metro UI after Logon.
Metro can be nice, but as a 'Poweruser' you don't need it in the first place.
Microsofts last statement is there is no way to avoid Metro UI while login.
Right. Becaus they have some kind of policy in the System which doesen't allow the user to login directly to Desktop.
In result I only found the known workarounds like
- creating a scheduler task
- autorun or statup routine
- some scr workaround
- metro suite
- etc. etc.
They all have three things in common
- start a task
- splash Metro UI for at least a second
- desktop keeps loading the interface
It all works in some way, but... not in the way it could be.
It's all nice, and also credit for all of you, but as we can see Windows Server 2012 has this 'fast and fluid' logon experience many of us want to have.
Now, I think I found a/the nativ way and (very best) solution.
(IMHO it only can be better if Microsoft releases some kind of undocumented/secret registry value to skip Metro UI)
It's no patch, no editing of files, no replacement from any other Windows System.
Just a script with pretty normal actions and many kinds of errorhandling.
After it's running, it just feels like the Windows Server 2012 login experience.
Please pause the video at the beginning and read the in-description. You can than still skip to 2:45 to see the real sign-in experience.
In addition to the Metro UI bypass script I may will provide some more nice registry tweaks which might be interessting.

finaly some positiv feedback. therefore it bothers nearly every power user... it seems that nobody cares about (imho) the real deal.

That's an opinion, I personally think they look anything BUT nice
and get rid of all those nice Metro transition effects when going into your start screen.

Does your solution involve patching any files or replacing them? MS included a complex license checking scheme to make sure that only Windows Server can skip the Start screen.
