Windows Wednesday was the big day for Microsoft - the largest overhaul of its operating system since Windows 95 (heck, I'd argue the overhaul is far larger than Windows 95) went into consumer preview. I've been running it on my Asus ZenBook since its release, and in all honesty, it's not as arduous as I expected. I'm not planning on doing a full review, but I do want to mention a number of things - both positive and negative - that stood out to me.

How do you get the Start menu back, boot straight into 'classic', and bypass the toy desktop?

I'd like to see Microsoft bring the option of the Vista/7 start menu back. I remember that someone had recreated it for XP, and called it ViStart. The installer will drop two pieces of crapware onto the system and a toolbar in IE, which can all be removed.

I will not be Delphi'd into liking the Metro interface. It's appropriate for tablets and phones.

and works well for desktops.

Seriously. The start screen is amazingly functional.
