True. I imagine there may be some benefit to it if
a) You have Windows 8 on your desktop and can survive "not-Metro-any-more" with a keyboard and mouse (or get an expensive but nifty touchpad like RB did)
b) You have a Windows 8 tablet PC, where the interface may actually work, and your settings auto-sync with said desktop.
I like it, but then, I spent $5 to get the Start button back and run everything in Desktop mode. It is
quicker than Windows 7, and that plus the copy interface balances out the lack of Aero shiny-ness.
I like the logon/lock screen too, and although I haven't done it yet, the ability to restore my settings from MS when I next format and reinstall might save me enough in time that I overlook the cost of Start8.
And I did only pay £25 for it, which is a bargain in my book...
