I may try it out when Windows 7 reaches end-of-life. I currently see no reason to go to Windows 8 right now, especially since I'm going to disable the Metro interface.

I'm getting a Leap, so I'll see how Windows 8 works with that.

Actually the metro interface is quicker than the start menu, and the search functionality is wonderful.
Metro is basically booting up in your start menu. You can just start typing and the desired app will appear.

That's how 7's start menu works. You start typing in the search bar, and the desired application will show up if it is installed.

Unless they fixed it, I watched a video about the final Windows 8 test in September, and it showed how awful the search function was.

There is a way to turn of the metro menu and windows so that your start menu and other menus revert to 6.1 (Win7) and looks jut time it normally would except you get to keep the kick @$$ task manager. However I do not have windows 8 so I can't direct you to that magic button, sorry.

the magic button is not a button its a magic app. We got a new server with windows server 2012 on it, which, thanks to some geniuses at microsoft, also uses the "metro" UI. Can you imagine ? a server os with a PHONE UI ? :D That must be the worst idea ever in the history of technology.

To get rid of it we use classicShell: http://www.classicshell.net/

I'd be curious to see a survey of how many people actually use the start menu.

Personally I have always used shortcuts on my desktop rather then go through the menu. And for the search bar I find it much quicker using windows key + f, then using the start menu.

My only gripe is that it won't boot directly to the desktop
