    I didn't mind them being there...
    What does irritate me is that fact that the search has a current social/news events display.

    This is supposed to be an operating system, not a social network like facebook, twitter, or tumblr. Bing and the App store already offer with these types of outlets. I think it is very inappropriate, and makes the OS seem shoddy.

    If you've hidden the Search icon but are still getting search results in the Bing UI from the Start Menu search bar, you need to turn off 'Getting search results from Bing' in zPCSettings, NOT the regular PCSettings.

    I don't see why anyone would waste their energy complaining about those 2 icons.

    Do I need them? No. Do I care about them? No.

    It's just another option to be able to hide or show them as per each one's own preference. :)

    I think part of it is, a lot of avid users, while eager to try new things, still spend a lot of time tweaking their machine just the way they like it so, when something new comes along, it's like "Arrgh!, what is that!?", "How come I can't move it!?", "What does it do!?", "Is it useful?", "I can't delete it!", "Why did MS put that there!?", etc., etc., etc.
    So, if you're tweaking the machine you bought with your own money along with the OS for which you purchased a license with your own money, sudden, seemingly hard-coded changes make one a little antsy.

    Not to mention the fact that it seems more and more prevalent for such corporations to use the 'Father knows Best' approach to lay stuff on you whether you like it or not.
    Don't wanna mention any names but G**gle is terrible for 'ramming stuff down your throat'.

    (Just a thought or two!)

    Also goes to show that Microsoft does seem to be listening to feedback...
    They cannot afford to NOT listen to us PC experts. This time around it's "sink or swim" for their operating system.

    Can't a reason for something not used to be taking valuable space on Taskbar. With many core processors and so much available RAM on modern computers, opening and leaving open many windows, it gets crowded down there.
