Yeah, or just install something like StartIsBack for Win8 and you can bypass the Metro Start screen completely. At first I didn't like Win8 either because of the whole Metro thing, but once I found that it is basically just another desktop window which can be bypassed, I didn't mind it so much.
It allows you to directly start the computer to the desktop?

Yep, all of those third party apps let you boot directly to the desktop and override the start button launching metro. At that point you're left with Windows 7 minus Aero plus a crappy flat theme.
