If you haven't tried out the bing apps you really should. Other than running as Metro apps, they are pretty impressive.
If you got rid of the bloatware... wouldn't Windows 8 disappear?
If you already have win8 installed what do you do?
MCaddick; I have not used a single win8 app that I liked including bing, ie, weather, none of it. I actually really wish that the Metro menu was used to load standard desktop programs and not apps! Maybe then I would actually use the "start menu"
?????? What is Windows 8?
1) Not all of those names are correct. The video and music are Xbox branded, not Zune.
2) Installing apps and uninstalling them takes less time than rewriting the image file
3) You would be an idiot to get rid of the PDF viewer, it makes adobe and other pdf viewers look like crap. It's the single fastest viewer i've used, and almost as accurate as adobe's one for rendering non-standard items.
"If you already have win8 installed what do you do?"
How about right click and uninstall? It's been there since day 1, and with the newest update you can select as many apps as you want to uninstall.
" I actually really wish that the Metro menu was used to load standard desktop programs and not apps!"
Clearly you've never used 8. The Start Screen can be used to pin just about anything, from WinNT and WinRT programs to files, links, and folders. It does EVERYTHING the start menu did, and more (you can't uninstall any programs from start menu)
I already have very few Windows apps. The vast majority of the tiles shown on the start screen were put there by desktop software installers.
Yeah, it's called Linux :P
You can launch desktop apps from Metro, I do it all the time. If fact there shouldn't be any reason you can't replace all of the Metro shortcut with Desktop shortcuts.
Revo Uninstaller works for me. (it's free too)
Usually Windows uninstaller leaves a lot of crap behind on your PC.
Revo monitors the windows based program removal and then analyses the registry and HDD for files and registry values that still remain. Then it gives you the option to remove them safely.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Anything that helps get rid of unwanted pre-installed software is a good thing.
Yeah I kinda like the bings apps also MCaddick.
