Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

If you start typing the app name it comes straight up.

The same interface works find on my android phone and nobody complains ... but on Windows, everyone is up in arms.

On android, each app doesn't install 5 or 6 useless icons named "uninstall myapp", "myapp readme", "configure myapp", "myapp website", "myapp updater" and such crap.

Also, android is not a desktop ui designed to be used with a touchscreen, which is ridiculous beyond words.

The problems you describe is because the uninstaller probably isn't using the correct APIs to install (same things happen when installing 32bit apps that don't use the API and they put themselves in Program Files instead of Program Files(x86))

This is not the fault of the Windows Devs.

Also you can unpin these items if you don't want them there.

Also I been using Metro all morning and I really like it, Everyone bitches when facebook changes it layout ... however the same people bitch on subsequent layout changes.

People also bitched about Windows 7 UI, The Windows Vista UI, the Windows XP UI, the Windows 95/98/NT/2000 interface ... My mate even said he bitched about Windows 3.11 interface ...

It works fine for me, I don't know what your malfunction is with it.
