Re: [WIN8] Search sucks

And Metro search doesn't search files at all even though it claims it does.

I think you missed the part where Metro search only searched files on the Desktop, not through the entire hard drive. One thing to keep in mind 'Metro' or whatever MS wants us to call it, it designed for, IMHO, non-power users/tablet users. How many times can you remember where Uncle Johny wanted to find hidden files on his MS Surface device? The full harddrive search is still there, it's just buried to keep the average Joe user from using it and potentially doing something bad.

This is one place where I'm not liking Windows 8, it's much too cumbersome for a power user in my mind.
