Just Browsing and Email with Windows 8
Is it possible to do simple stuff such as browsing and email using my existing applications (from Mozilla and IE) in W8 and have it really no different that in W7 or even XP? I'd like to have something like my existing tool bar on the bottom of my screen with icons for my: Start, Firefox and IE, Thunderbird, Exchange, Desktop PDA, File Manager. Then I can boot W8 and operate without having to learn much about W8, or can learn as the spirit moves me.
How about administrative tools: Task Manager, Device Manager, the other stuff in Control Panel? How about a quick search? W8 and Start provide an input that starts the OS searching for the string, as you type.
Seems I have to go to W8 if I purchase a new laptop, and I don't currently use any of the Andriod etc. iPod, Tablet so the new W8 is completely foreign to me.
