You'll get used to it
There will still be a place for traditional, desktop-style applications. These will run from the Windows 7-style Desktop, which now appears as an app on the Windows 8 Start Screen. "The Desktop is just another app that you can launch when you want to," said Harris. "There are no compromises. When you want a mouse and keyboard you can have it."
No start menu so I have been told, how can they do away with the start menu? Stupid idea, so every time you want to launch a different bit of software you got to go to the silly touch style interface, which is going to be a pain on non-touch devices.
I am not going to get used to it as I will not be using it.
I may download it and stick it ont he second machine or laptop just to be nosey,
Oh yeah the ribbon idea is awful, I hate it on Office.
touch screens on desktops is rubbish to be honest, not only are you going to get greasy finger marks all over the screen, but your arms will start to ache.
touch screen on a phone is ok, but not on a desktop or laptop computer for that matter.
Yep, MS have lost the plot
