    I for one hate the start page and have bypassed it with " Classic Start Menu" and "Start menu 8" I have also got rid of my"Chime bar" Windows 8.1 should be out this month I hear that the start Menu will be added again but I hope it gives you a option to do the same things the 3rd party progs do... BTW...I have a laptop and not a tablet but do you use a 3rd party progs to add the start button menu and stop that chime bar?

    I stuck it out and let myself get used to the UI changes along with learning a trick or two along the way(like doing a right click in the lower left hand corner to bring up a power user-type menu). Pretty much spend 99% of my time in the desktop though, Netflix is about the only program I use in the Metro/Modern UI.

    That would be useful, you can right click near the bottom in the Metro UI and get the choice of listing all programs, but IMO they're organised a bit shambolically.
