All you need to use Windows 8 is a mouse with a wheel, no real need to use any of the keyboard shortcuts.

I’ve installed Win8 a couple of weeks ago and I just love it. Much faster then Win7, faster to start and shut down, easy to navigate, new Metro apps just look great and all of the desktop/old Win7 apps work fine (and faster) in Desktop mode.
You really need to try it. And yes, there is no Start button but you don’t really need it!

I agree that it is a hybrid version, but Microsoft had to do something like that as not all of the ‘old’ apps are available in Metro format. It will probably take a few years to completely migrate.
