Windows Server 8

This is an old post and doesn't necessarily reflect my current thinking on a topic, and some links or images may not work. The text is preserved here for posterity.

Today I installed the Windows Server 2012 RC, planning to test Octopus Deploy with it.

First question: How do I open Notepad?

Where is the start menu?

(Click to zoom)

Unlike Windows 8, there's no start button near the bottom (the new looking icon is for Server Manager). How do I open applications with this? See if you can work it out.
