The old Windows 8 argument on a non-touch laptop

We have already heard many arguments about Windows 8 with and without touch, the new “metro” UI and the missing start button. I dont intend to add anything to this I think it really comes down to your personal preference. In my case I found it awkward to use so wanted a solution to make things better.

My solution is that developed by StarDock this was brought to my attention by Paul Thurrott on Windows Weekly.

ModernMix works amazing allowing you to be able to run “Metro” apps in Windows. I have always played games in Windows so the idea of using full screen will take me a long time to grasp, and ModernMix allows me to completely avoid that!
