Are there things to like about Windows 8?

Episode 977 (1:05:35)

Tom from Brea, CA

Tom has Windows 8 and likes it, but would much rather have a start button. Leo says he can press the Windows Key and it'll go into the desktop, which is beneficial. He also customizes his metro interface for him, which is something that most people don't realize is possible. Tom also says he loves the search feature because all he needs to do is start typing and it'll bring stuff up. Leo agrees, that is very easy. He also really likes the Mail app in Windows 8.

Tom does agree, however, that having separate apps for the desktop and metro can be confusing. Leo says to go ahead and get Windows 8, and if he must have the Start menu back, he can just get Start8 by Stardock for a $5 download.
