My Trials of Windows 8 & the New Metro Start Screen

I have recently taken a tour of the Developer Preview of Windows 8. All in all, the experience was familiar to Windows 7. The biggest (and currently hotly debated) addition is the new Metro Start Screen. For those of you whom don't know, it is essentially a new start menu. Instead of seeing a menu popup near the start orb, you now are greeted with a full screen app launching platform. In many aspects, it's very similar to the Wii menu. Quite a change, but I could find myself getting used to it.
