Well after struggling with Windows 8, like where is that darn start button, and then figuring out that a quick flip and a click in the left corner got me to a much better start menu. As to the issues with the “Enterprise” customer, I think that as a Enterprise user, I like the interface, granted I work for Microsoft, but I do. Enjoyed Windows 7, but I don’t miss it.
I am able to get to Visual studio much faster. And the sematic motion is done with ctrl+- (that’s control key and the minus key), quickly set up a group of Office 2013. Fast, really, fast.
Setting up network was simple and easy. Win key is the flag key

Here is what my start screen looks like, note that I have my Office 2013 on the left side. I am left handed so it makes sense to me.
You organize your tiles by selecting them in a sematic snap and typing the group name in the app bar that appears. Remember that on the keyboard is the control key and the minus key next to the zero.
