Learning to love Windows 8’s new shell

leave a comment »

I’ve been using Windows 8 as my primary machine’s OS for a few weeks now, and much to my surprise I’m discovering that I’m preferring the new Start screen over the old Start menu. In particular, the Start screen allows me to have more control over the shortcuts and how they’re organized. I do have some minor gripes about the default behavior (it puts the shortcuts installed by a newly installed app on the Start screen by default), but it’s manageable; it’s a small chore to click all of the ones you don’t want and click “unpin.”

Hello, world!

Hi, I’m the new location for Andy Hopper’s blog.

I am certain it will be frequently neglected.

Here I am, brain the size of the universe, and all they give me to do is serve up this drivel.

You don’t like it, do you? I can’t blame you. After all, it’s pretty bleak.

Don’t mind me, I’ll just sit over here and rust.
