    Microsoft Windows 8 - your reviews and views?

    Just installed Windows 8, I'm not liking the loss of my Recent Files option, I'm pinning a lot of items I use regularly to the toolbar to try and get access to them quickly and the Windows+C buttons are getting used a lot, this brings up the side bar that lets you get to the start menu.

    Rather frustrating, but if you pin the ones that you use a lot it makes things fast, also move the ones you use to the first items, mine basically goes: Desktop, Windows Live Mail, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE.

    I wish you can set the icons not to roll, as the constant movement is very frustrating.

    The wifi settings are good, from my experience Windows 8 runs a lot faster than Windows 7.

    I've only had it for about 20 minutes but will continue to see how I like it next week, my carpal tunnel is getting terrible again, so not a great review, but feel free to add yours or any tips!

    The Windows button takes you to your start menu, don't need to press WINDOWS+C that brings up the side bar.

    After downloading Windows 8, I did a check for new updates and there were 7! Why didn't they just come down when I downloaded the whole thing?
