Seriously, it's no secret that Windows 8 has been one major flop for Microsoft. Such badly disjointed interaction between the "Metro" and "Traditional" screens, it's like two different ecosystems stitched together with blu-tack. HP recently announced they were starting to sell new laptops with Windows 7 again. Anyway, to the point, this article perfectly describes how to make Windows 8.2 work, and work right. MS have already announced their intention to bring the Start Menu back. That kinda back-peddling while embarrassing, is definitely needed.
