    Hate it right now. I lived around my start menu and now it’s just ridiculous that it takes up the whole screen and makes it harder to find what I’m looking for.

    Good example is opening Devices and Printers. Windows 7, click start menu, click Devices and Printers button, done. New way for me, click start, start typing devices and printers, (results across Apps, Settings, and Files not aggregated so I have to do the next step), press down arrow twice, then click devices and printers.

    I thought computers (for business anyway) were meant to be productivity tools, but how can someone be productive if the tool they use changes so drastically and typically on a 3 to 4 year cycle. (gripe gripe gripe)

    Also, hiding things on the screen corners is even more frustrating in a multi-monitor scenario like mine where I have 3 screens on the desk and my main screen is the middle one. I have to be pretty precise to get the hidden screens to come up which just creates more frustration.

    I know this was Microsoft’s way of forcing developers to design for their tablet since they had failed to dominate the tablet market every other time they tried. I know there is nothing that can be done so I’m having to get use to not using the start menu at all, but it’s very frustrating to do this and in the back of mind I know they are going to do something different again with windows 9 causing me to re-train again, which causes me even more frustration.

    Is it possible to watch the recorded event another day?
    I’m terribly busy that time, and I honestly don’t want to miss it.
