My suggestion would be, try doing without and you will like the new method better once you get used to it.
It's just as quick to press the Windows Key on your keyboard, type half of what you want to load and press enter.
I dunno, I was the same way at first, but once I got down the concept, I realized it works much better.. plus you can still pin apps to the taskbar if you want.
I have tried, and with a desktop metro is actually quite fine. However I use laptops throughout the day mostly at work on the go and metro is not touchpad friendly from what I have experienced.

How did people not see this coming? This is a perfect opportunity to cash in with the release of Windows 8 in less than 30 days.
I did not see this coming because of this:
Will anyone still be able to download and/or purchase the final version of Start8 when it is officially launched?
Oh yea. Start8 is going to be freeware still for non-commercial use.
