They also don't look like Windows Modern Tiles, so while it's only "Exe Shortcuts" it looks like crap!
And? x86 apps can't and most likely never will have a proper Metro tile.
What is your excuse about the All Apps section? I have seen readme's shortcuts to websites, and other things in there. With Windows 7, they were all neatly tucked away in folders. Some programs put it in a sub-folder labeled Additional Resources. But.....now they are always visible when I go to All Apps.
Yes... But if you're up to date on your "power user" techniques, you'd never have to venture into All Apps to begin with. Also, not all programs have their own folders. There are many that just sit out, flapping in the wind. You could argue with that, that the All Programs Menu is less organized than All Apps in Windows 8.
