Windows 8 – first look
Windows 8 desktop
Its early days and the Windows 8 desktop may evolve further as the OS nears release, but today its underwhelming compared to the initial rush of the new Start screen. This doesn’t mean its bad in any way – in fact, Windows 7 users will feel right at home. The only major clue is the new Start button, which – obviously enough – launches you back into the Start screen.
