Microsoft has made it known that attempts to bypass the Metro (or whatever new name they choose to give it) interface, will not work in Windows 8 RTM.  But there is a way to get around this behavior and have Windows 8 boot straight to the desktop.

By now if you have used the Windows 8 Start Screen enough, you have probably discovered the "All Apps" view.  The "All Apps" view  shows you every shortcut that is installed on your machine but perhaps not pinned to the main Start Screen.  In particular if you have upgraded your Windows 7 machine to Windows 8, you may have noticed that your All Apps view shows the folder names that you may have had shortcuts placed in before upgrading.  Here I'll outline the basic steps to customize the "All Apps" view.

In this article I will outline my experiences with an in-place upgrade of my corporate Windows 7 x64 Ultimate machine to that of Windows 8 Release Preview (RP).  Granted this is a release preview and not the RTM (Release to Manufacturing), but most of the underlying bits should remain the same in the end in a few months.  I have a large range of software installed on this test machine, which should be useful for compatibility testing.  I've included a compatibility chart to organize my findings.  In addition, this setup is a multi-monitor setup of 4 screens over the two video cards to make things more interesting.  This is a work in progress, as I will likely update this article over time.
