    Well, I like it, can see why people don't like it too, especially if they are used to the start-button. Me on the other hand, I never used it so its less clutter on the taskbar I guess. :)
    Can't say much about metro either since I never use it.

    For me win8 is essentially an improved win7 without a start button.

    Would have been fun to attend the launch but not going to fly over there because of it. :)

    This thread is about the Microsoft Windows 8 launch event, not about Apple. Keep it on topic.

    I would go to this if it was closer. I've never been to a launch event of any kind at it would be interesting to see what goes on. Free stuff would be a bonus.
