-_- Yeah, I never saw much use for WMC.
Just... >_<

I honestly did not know WMC was still around! At least they stick to their products! Even if they are going to charge for later versions....

Not unless I can use it without touching Metro
There are a bunch of start button programs you can use, and many of them take over the windows key too.

In all the history of these programs they haven't costed anything... Why make them cost additional money now? I don't understand it. Personally, I have high hopes for Windows 8 as a mobile operating system, and I would love a tablet running on it. But these applications that make Windows what it is costing additonal money on top of the amount it already costs? It's a real killjoy.
