IMHO windows made really bad choices, industry doesn't mind, users get used to it and eventually everyone forgets what windows should look like. I'm glad I abandoned ship though.

... which provide a new type of Start (Metro Style).
But I was just now getting used to the current Start menu!

And the start screen is a start menu on steriods. For you to see the usefulness you have to be ready to open up your mind, its simple you can pin your most useds apps or for sever guys you can pin an app that allows you to monitor the severs and what not.
How it looks all depends on how you set it up, i have mine and people ask me what it is i said the new MS OS, some saids it looks cool, so it all depends on how you set up yours. And for programmers you would hardly be in the windows 8 interface anyway, so just pin the desktop link to the start screen and click it when you login.
And just saying your all behaving like how they first behave when Microsoft introduce the start menu way back then, and the ribbon is fine i use it and have no problem with it majority of users use it and don't have any problems with it. Is either you accept the change and move on or change to something else, anyway we take it, Window 8 will ship off and the masses will either hate it or like it and if you take an hour to actually use your brain you can figure out how the Start Screen is beneficial( not saying you guys are not using your brains now). But as most people said if you don't want to boot into the start screen just hibernate and wake your computer it goes right back to the start screen, and as some one pointed out, the desktop is there, its just your start screen like what you have in windows 7 where you choose which user account with a major steroids upgrade.
And for the record, Microsoft is not known for having good designs, i believe they have some monkeys or some preschool children doing there design.

I was trying to make refer to over the years Microsoft have a very poor record in design, for example i like the Visual Studio 2010 look, but when i see Visual Studio 2012, i get depressed.
