As I was starting to spend more and more time using server 2012 I thought it was time to get my head around 8.1
made the jump today on my laptop (desktop runs mavericks). I can see its going to be very important to get users to customise their own start menus.
I've got about 10 apps pinned, for the rest I just hit windows and then start typing to search for them.
The only thing that is really annoying me at the moment, if desktop IE is open, it will open the desktop version, if it isn't my shortcut loads the metro version.
