Guess it's time to remove .NET too, don't need too many pesky application development platforms!

It probably will add new features. What I hope for is that it's a free upgrade from Windows 8 Professional.

This just seems like a tread that's going to turn into an I hate/I love Windows 8, judging by the OP

i don't understand why some of you just can't adapt..... most of the people who complain about the start menu being removed sound alot like the XP fanatics who wouldn't upgrade after vista and win 7 was released.
was i thrilled about the start menu being removed.....hell no. But i upgraded and adapted.i actually wish that M$ take the metro UI and make it the desktop instead of icons. having live tiles, app tiles and desktop app tiles right on the desktop would be ideal. and change the charms bar to become the new psuedo start menu.

Metro/Modern UI is going nowhere, it's here to stay so deal with it. However, I did hear whispers that MS might bring the old start menu back for those who want it (considering the unprecedented demand for it), but take that with a grain of salt.

try some painkillers man, dont spread the hate, my choice is mine.

yea but then its required to install some software... else setup fails but im with you... .net is just bloat.
