    More specifically imposition of 'metro' on every user. Take that out and it is an reasonably good upgrade from Win7. I don't think it is difficult at all to get back to Win7 style start button. They could have addressed it with one easy step, by giving choice to users at the time of installation. This way it would not have affected their plans with regard to unification of OS core on Desktop/Mobiles.

    TBH for me, Start button is irrelevant never used it at all, and Metro for now is an abstraction at best. However, once I've had the chance to use it on a touch enabled ultra/notebook, I'll have bit more insight into the UI. From my time with WP, I think it (metro UI on mobiles) gives nearly as good an user experience as iOS does, if not better.
