For those of you using Windows 8 and not liking the new interface, there is a great app to bring back a start-menu type interface. I started using this and really like it: www.stardock.com/products/start8/
am usually a big advocate of adapting new technologies, and the new
tiles on Win8 are pretty nice if you are using a touch interface (such
as a tablet or trackpad). Not so much on a traditional desktop
computer, or like I use, in remote sessions.
started using this on my work computer and am very happy with it.
There is a 30-day free trial, and if you decide you like it the app is
have read you can use it on Server 2012 too and am really looking
forward to trying that out (do you have any idea how hard it is to make
the "charms" bar work in a vSphere console on a machine you are
accessing via RDP?!?!)
