First thing I added to my Win8 portfolio...works great, and you can set it to go right into your "normal" Win7 -looking desktop. I know there are free ones out there, but for $5, you can't go wrong. MS could do themselves a favor and buy that company and put it in their next Windows Update.

Have a feeling, we might see MS make the change themselves, the codes already there, they just are thinking everyone will go with how THEY say things should be, and I (and numerous other long time Beta Testers for MS) have told them this Win8 will take a year or more to start to fly as is. The base interface is great for pads, phones, etc....but in general don't think it will go over with the general populace

Windows 8 is killing the PC industry. M$ should realize what works for a phone or other touch-centric devices ain't worth much on a real computer.

Sales aren't what they expected (hoped), the head of the Windows Division left in Nov (Steven Sinofsky) after over 20 years w/ them, and rumors are others may be out the door
