Uninstall Windows 8 and install Linux instead. Hundreds of Linux distros are available that include the Start Menu and NO Metro Tiles! I recommend Linux Mint Maya with the MATE desktop environment, but Cinnamon, XFCE and KDE desktop environments are also available with Linux Mint. Lubuntu is another good alternative with a traditional desktop environment. Even Red Hat based Fedora 18 Linux is offering the MATE traditional desktop environment now. Just say NO to Metro!
