No, I don't. The reason being is because I like having access to all of the Control Panel items in one convenient location.

Don't like category view, never did. For me it always took longer to find things. And I also don't really like the start screen. Biggest thorn in my side with it is settings search. In Win 7 I can just type the name of the applet, like mouse, hit enter and I'm there. In 8 I have to type it, arrow down to get to settings and then click mouse, very cumbersome and annoying to do something that used to be so simple.

This is why I use Startisback on Windows 8 :p

I almost never use category view but it does it's advantages. I sometimes click to category view when I'm too lazy to find programs and features in icon view, or if I'm looking for some feature I rarely use.
