    A couple of months ago, I bought a new i5 desktop that came with Win 8. At first, I was confused with all the tiles, but then discovered there is a tile to open a Win XP/Vista/7 desktop. I can put all the icons I want on the desktop, just like in old Win versions.

    In addition, I can add/remove all the tiles I want on the Metro tile interface. I like this, and I have more customized tiles to launch my programs than I ever had icons. And, the tiles can be arranged into categories, and the categories can be named to help me find my tiles.

    Metro apps, though? except for a few simple programs, like the picture viewer, serious office work doesn’t work in Metro. But, who cares – the desktop is still there, and theat’s where serious programs ( e.g. Office ) will be run.

    Can’t find something in the Control Panel ( or the control panel itself ) ? No problem – on the tile screen, just type what you want anywhere, and the OS will list all the items that fit your request with links to open them.
