Win8 DYK - keyboard shortcuts on the desktop

Was playing around with Win8 at work today and realized that I can use the Windows key + r to open run commands while on the desktop. So I started messing with others and realized that in the Win8 desktop, you don't really need the Start button (although I'll admit looking for it more than once while in real work mode/environment). It will take some time, but i'm happy with the move to Win8.
