      How is this compared to the previous Windows 8?

      Haven't installed it yet but main change that everyone wanted is the return of the start button :)

      Is the start button even that big of a deal? If you move your mouse over to the bottom right corner, it's still technically there.

      Got to admit I don't find it a problem not having it.

      Update on the start button.
      If your keyboard doesn't have a windows button then it will make it easier but I find the windows button just as quick.

      Still has a look I don't care for. I think Windows 8 should have two models, the usual look and the tablet look (current look.). I don't get why they thought this change was good.
