I am not sure about Win 8. I haven't really made up my mind about it yet.

Win8 is a pain until you grasp the concept ('using the keyboard is faster than using the mouse').

Then it works just fine. But it helps to have a touch-enabled device. For desktops, the "Start Page" is somewhat superfluous.

in a way i agree the start up desktop is useless , but is handy especially for apps etc, everything is so centered around apps now , so for me going to amazon , ebay and such is quicker than having to go to chrome go to favorites click on amazon etc etc etc ... pros and cons either way , personally i like it for me as sometimes i dont have the time to go through all of that and i need to see something quickly .

I have Win8, disabled the metro interface and use it exactly like I used win7. Don't see what the issue is...

You don't really disable it. It's more hiding it away and you install another start menu.

voila
