10 Must-have Features For Windows 9

When the USA first landed on the moon (a stunning achievement), their return to earth ended with an undignified splash-down in some ocean!
Over time, things improved.
Microsoft, by incrementally introducing a common cross platform/OS, have also undertaken a "giant leap for mankind" - and had an undignified splash-down.
It will also improve exponentially.
BTW, did Siri (etc) come with the first iPhone, or did folks have to wait a while?
Patience, dear. Patience!

You can move your Desktop Tile to upper left and hit enter by default to get out of metro from the get go.

Generally I like Win 8 (sort of). It is running on two laptops (1 up from Vista & one up from Win 7) and one desktop (up from XP) without any significant problems.
However, with a long-range plan to have a two laptop (desktop replacement & run-of-the-mill unit), NAS unit replacing the desktop, and a tablet or two in the works, so far I have nothing compelling to keep me with Windows instead of moving to an UBUNTU environment for the laptops, Android for the tablets, functioning wit the NAS.
So, if MickeySoft wants to keep the likes of guys like me, it had better come up with something really good and less expensive across the whole works. Surface RT is useless and Surface Pro is not really than attractive as a laptop desktop replacement from a multitude of points-of-view. Win 8 laptops are interesting but most of my work involves writing, multitudinous desktop apps running reference material and internet sources simultaneously on either a 15.6" or 17" screen, and I require 500GB to 1TB storage for much of the material I retain in my system. Since I travel a lot all this has to be in a laptop computer.
Most of my "Modern" desktop stuff today with Win 8 is simply pass-think-time games or reading some information screens - nothing really productive.
Do I think MickeySoft is concerned - not likely!

ROTFL!!!! Anyone who would equate the Win 8 jump to Metro to the first landing on the moon must be an IT comedy writer....
Really, this is *NOT* rocket science, guys....

Yesterday, I read where M$ is considering setting a goal of yearly releases of Windows versions. I think it's a mistake, but M$ obviously doesn't care what I think.

It does in a way. Right click select all apps and type any letter and voila you have your list.

Newsflash! When you boot into windows it takes you to the metro screen...do you see that huge tile that says Desktop on it?! Oh yeah, right there! Click it and bang you're in the desktop. If that's too difficult for you then you probably shouldn't be breathing because that basically takes more effort!
Also, did you notice, even after loading to the start screen, clicking that desktop tile, you're still there quicker than you were on Windows 7.

You can drag the metro on other monitor which is my HDTV and it worked for me. If you press Windows key it will always appear on other screen.
There was other way too to get metro on other screen. You probably also need to adjust your resolution on other screen to highest.

Ignore my previous comment, here are steps the to put metro on other monitor
1. Right click and slect Screen Resolution
2. Make the second screen as main display > apply
3. Drag and move the screens positions > apply
4. Press Windows key > Metro tiles will appear on second screen

No, because Microsoft now wants to bring out a new edition every year! If users don't speak up soon after the release of a new OS, it could be five years before their wants and desires will never exist.
