Naaaaa! Not at all. It took no more time than setting up Windows Vista or Win-7 for one of my customers. They like it when things are somewhat segregated and organized. All my Utilities and weekly maintenance are on the left, just above the START button (well, not so much, on win-8) and all the internet stuff, browser, internet connection shortcut and Security Software are on the right margin. Production and entertainment icons go along the top of the screen. A few well placed shortcuts in the Quick Launch toolbar pretty much finish off the screen. When I'm actually setting up a new PC, all the above takes only a few minutes. For this old tech, it's not even work....but pleasure. It's almost a shame to charge people for something I have fun at. Just give me back my START button and we'll be good to go. It appears like MS took away our ability to shut off the Metro UI, just for spite. If past experience is any indicator, hackers all over the world are working on ways to put the START button back where it belongs and to KILL the Metro UI.
