Just curious of the people using Windows 8 which interface method you are making use of for your daily use. I used Start 8 for a while but found myself going back to Metro.

I use Start 8 for Windows 8, but for my servers that are on Server 2012, the regular interface doesn't bother me at all.  The servers that still have a GUI anyway.  Server Core ftw.

Well, it depends on which machine.

main rig, start8
secondary rig, start8
main laptop, modern ui (mostly use openSUSE on this anyway)


Everything else is still on win7/linux

I voted for the Metro interface because I'm currently using Win 8 on a touch enabled laptop. Though, I am still using ViStart on my testing rig running CP. I saw no point in paying for the Start8 if this does pretty much the same thing. :)

Got myself a cheap laptop couple weeks back. Came with W8, I use Classic Shell for a Start screen and boots to it, but as I use Metro more and more, it seems to get easier for me. It boots really fast too, tweaked it up and it boots between 20-25 seconds.

Just helped a client with his new PC, he saw Windows 8 and freaked out. I mean just went nuts and was about to return the computer when he called me. I was bale to move him over to Start8, kill some of the metro apps so they do not take control and got him back up the way he wanted to run.
