Very good point, my Win8 laptop is exactly the same, the Metro (TIFKAM ) apps are still really poor imo. Slightly bemused that MS didn't build Office 2013 to be more Start Screen friendly considering the Windows 8 \ tiles look has been in their mindset for quite a while now. It's not as if Office 2013 is a radical departure from 2010 either, which seems to suggest development silos within the company not all pulling in the same direction... not good...

By the time users are asking for 8 on the desktops it should have a Service Pack \ update bundle behind it and hopefully MS will sort out some of the glaring errors they've made around Enterprise management and deployment (yes Metro apps I mean you!)
