If they make a "Windows 8 No Fullscreen" edition I will buy it, I don't dislike Metro in itself just the fullscreen nature of it annoys me very much Dotdotdot

Then how are they supposed to do their jobs if they don't have MS Office?

extras in Pro Wrote:encryption, virtualization, PC management and domain connectivity
So essentially similar to Win7 Pro+Ultimate.

Interesting that the ARM version doesn't have Windows Media Player.
Also interesting is that they're reducing the number of versions.  MS feeling the pressure of competition?
