    I'm probably the only one who hates the tiles and does whatever is necessary to keep from ever seeing one. Classic Shell is a huge help.

    I always did whatever it took to stay away from anything resembling the very annoying Windows 7 Start menu.

    Well yes I don't like the tiles. I use Classic Shell and I still use the quick launch tool bar. Right next to the quick launch tool bar I have an link to the original 10 startscreen, just incase I ever feel like checking out these live tiles. I did actually use one that I created for awhile "Gas Buddy" . Alas I finally decided its just as easy to check local gas prices with my phone and haven't used the startscreen since.

    Why would they bother pay to buy something to deviate from their "vision" of a common interface across all devices - more to maintain etc.?

    From their viewpoint, it adds no value (and I have to agree with that probable viewpoint).

    The cost of buying it is next to nothing - you are lucky they allow you to use such tools - they could lock it down so it is not possible.

    There is a W8 view, it's called Tablet mode but it's locked on desktops, all they have to do is to unlock it, no need to invent hot water again.

    Go ahead, change it. I don't use it anyway, except to launch the Settings options. I keep everything else on Quick Access Popup and Blanch.

    Its actually not locked on desktops. I have a desktop computer and I just tried Tablet Mode and it worked perfectly. Kind of funky.
