Windows 8: Start menu fun

The next video shows the real user experience of the average user. It’s maybe not really appropriate anymore because it was the beta version but it’s funny to watch:

Everyone knows yet that the removal of the classic start menu is a chock for most users. In my opinion it’s a mistake by Microsoft to completely eliminate the classic start menu. There should be at least an option to bring it back to provide some transition to future Windows versions because almost all legacy applications does not run yet in the new Windows 8 user interface but are still running on the desktop.  There are already a lot of third party tools available to bring the classic start menu back like Stardock Start8, Iobit Start Menu 8,..

But no panic, there is another great hidden feature in the new Windows 8 start menu! When you right click on the new Windows 8 User interface you get a very handy menu to access the most important tools in Windows. It’s very handy for IT-pro’s like me, this is really a great enhancement!

    This whole thing (Win8) is heavily sway towards touch enabled devices… Yes transition could be difficult, and I guess for IT professionals too as we are for some time going to support transition environments comprised from 3 flavors of Windows 8 x86, x64 + RT plus any other BYOD things, plus some legacy stuff as usual… All of this needs to be put together in some sort of consistent and manageable environment, which may involve all sorts of management & virtualization software 🙂
