A couple of US Army-owned laptops and PCs we use (actually almost all of them) run WinXP on IE6. Yes IE6. It drives me nuts because even the army websites we use aren't code for IE6 (*.army.mil) but for newer versions and even for Firefox.

Windows Home Premium 64 bit
 
 

I don't like the start menu because now it seems like i cannot organize my programs like I used to. Instead they are giant buttons on my laptop and... its a pain to find shutdown, restart and sleep buttons and instead I have to resort to power button for shutdown or close laptop for sleep (if power settings are set) but then it wasn't even working right after an update... so i had to remove it.

NOW you don't want to do that. Tell you what to try, move your mouse over to the lower left corner in "Desktop, and right-click it. NOW looky there, something you can use in Windows 8 to get you going, and give you that home feeling again

7 ultimate x64
 
 

Its fine with windows 8 new UI to have the consumer friendly approach, in fact I quite like it but please have the option to boot to either desktop or metro UI. Its far too big a change. I like it for quickness and ease of use to check emails/read a book etc. plus it seems more responsive but apart from that, meh. Plus if i was having multiple programs/word docs/PDFs/e-mail clients/browsers etc. running at once in the metro UI forget it.

As for the server 8, is this the new consumer version for everyone to use or just professionals. Its just not right keep it professional, please not.....

Thanks. Nice to find some tools on desktop after a month of using it.

It does have to be in the very bottom left of taskbar where left-click also accesses Start page.

Windows 7 SP1 (x86) Ultimate
 
 

I tried win 8 cp but somehow didn't feel comfortable so back on Windows 7 and I don't plan to shift on win 8 as long as they don't give a choice for disabling some of the metro features.
