I am sure you can, but the start menu is not where it is supposed to be, it takes over my screen so I cant see what else I am doing, I have to WindowsC to see it or potentially scroll 27+13 inches to see it ~ and if I accidentally click a metro app ... wait, wait, fullscreen app ...grrrrOriginally Posted by ShaneC

I am all for adding `another method of input to the mix`
... but why Metro as unchangeable default
I am not bagging Metro as such, I am not anti-microsoft )although I am a daily linux user) all it would take to shut me up is an option for Desktop mode as default (perhaps it already exists I just cant see it)
thats it.. a traditional start menu I still think is daft to not include as an option but thats not the end of the world , in my gnome-shell or unity I use cairo-dock since there is no default menu there either.
Actually Unity/Gnome 3 is a good case in point, Gnome went all touchy-feely on us, Ubuntu devs (and Mr.Torvalds himself) hated it and instead recreated their own ...even worse version of it.
Most everyone I know who are regular linux users have dropped back to Gnome2 distros or converted to Xface/KDE/Some Other manager, linux users love choice, and are voting with their mouses. Luckily for me if I don't like the desktop environment I can simply install an alternative , Windows users will not have this option.
under the hood Windows 8 is very Windows 7 without a start menu so why not give a 'traditional' interface option ?
