I've been booting to the desktop for months.  Power Options on the Start Screen and Folder Option on Apps are nice.

For a lot of us, yeah, no change.

 

But this IS huge. Much better integration between the desktop and metro. That's something that was sorely missing.

I want to like 8 but still feels a bit like an experiment. Am only running it on one desktop client that I needed to connect to WSE12R2 via DirectAccess. In which case I'm running 8 Ent and not 8.1 because it consistently "broke" my DA connectivity on the client. Lost patience trying to pinpoint the root cause.

 

Even still, there's nothing in Win 8 that I miss when I move back to Win 7 on my work PC. I wish there were improvements that were game-changing. Perhaps on a touch screen?

 

And my HTPC is Win 7 with Media Center as Win 8 is the anti-Media Center :-)
