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.
Actually it rather simple give the option to the user whether they want or need a touch UI or a desktop UI ..
Your right and I think we all know this is a tidied up version of Windows7 with a touch orientated start menu, something I would expect to get from M$ update not from my retailer for a premium.
and for the record I am not whining about win8 just disappointed that it is difficult for me to easily navigate my programs with out modifying the UI start screen , I guess Windows 7 spoiled us or at least me anyway, I remember tweaking the hell out of the OS from XP back and don't really see a need to tweak Windows 7.
