Yeah, that's cool, but the thing I don't like about it is having to type it in when before I could just find the icon and click it (when on the traditional desktop obvs, not switching over to Metro). Unless I'm doing something wrong.

If you've used XP for 10 years I understand it may seem like a tough transition, but 8 is miles ahead.

If I could run the latest computer games in a Linux distro without many problems right when they came out, I'd run Linux instead of Windows on my main computer; that's for sure...
