And what was that? Many want to know how to bypass the Start screen while I've seen the RP load directly to the desktop at times without the need to click on the desktop button. That wouldn't be seen each time however.

At this point I'll only upgrade form Windows 7 when Microsoft rejiggers the kernel and removes desktop application usability.

No way Microsoft took away all of the good stuff in Win 8 !
I ran all 3 versions of 8 and it sucks big time i would not take it even if Microsoft
gave it out for FREE its that simple !

I'd like to see if anything was tweaked in the RTM version.

Yes that sums it up nicely! A convoluted puzzle for the new 8 users!

Cluttered with Metro but where are the usable items to be found?!

Besides the drastic gui layout changes the new version isn't very dual boot friendly either! That means a totally isolated stand alone install to a different drive while any other OS drive is left unplugged since selecting 7 in a dual boot here resulted in both versions being trashed!

When simply changing from Native ide to AHCI the RP install failed to run afterwards while 7 made the automatic adjustments without a glitch.

Windows version 2,987,654 naaa... maybe 7,997,657! That has "7s" in it!

No idea what had been done or how.
I also can go straight to desktop bypassing the Start Metro.
Tried it 3 times, 3 times straight to desktop.

Guest OS .... Win 8 RP in VMware 4.0.4
Classic Shell 3.5.1 installed.
