Michael Brown March 7 2012 09:48:42 PMIn case it might have escaped your attention, the beta Consumer Preview of Windows 8 (a.k.a. Microsoft's Suicide Note) arrived last week. If you're not a fan of Microsoft or its products then you'll think you've died and gone to heaven. Yes, It's that bad.
I'm going to start with the Metro Start Screen, which replaces Start Menu; yep, the latter's gone completely. There's no registry hack to put it back either. It's entirely inappropriate for what it tries to do, and it's rammed down your throat to an extent that's impossible to escape from.
When you first open the Start Screen, it looks something like this. (I had moved a few things around, so yours won't look exactly like this.)
This is how it looks after I'd pinned some useful, Desktop apps to the Start Screen.
When I looked at the screen above for a short time, I couldn't help feeling that it looks kinda familiar.....
