Windows 8 is all about sharing. Sharing applications makes Windows sociable, something that is clear with this next version of Windows. Applications can be shared as well as bookmarks and other things.
But don't worry. If you want to see the old Control Panel back, you can always find it again. Here you can see the 'Desktop view' which is just as you would expect, the desktop bit of Windows without any user tiles. You can still access your applications, but the key is that the Start menu is replaced by the Start screen of tiles.
Many have spoken about the new file transfer screens and how marvelous it is. I must say I'm impressed, as it shows the user a more visual way of how fast the transfer, download, copy or move of files is going. It accurately pins how long it will take, and users can pause the transfer half way through in favour of another transfer.
