The operation is exactly the same (other than performance loss that most wont ever notice) and you still get to keep the smaller start menu.

And this is the hard part from a business standpoint. How do you transition from the old start menu to the new? The only thing I can think of is rather than naming it Windows 8, that they brand it differently. The only issue with that is that it actually is the same windows, just with another UI added to it. It's kind of a damned if you do damned if you don't situation.

They always could have called it Walls 2012.
Personally I'd vote for either A) "Windows Ain't" or B)Just plain "WINDOW" there aint much 'windows' in Win 8.
