Windows 8 gaming: why it's not all doom and gloom

I like Windows 7. It works for me. The Windows 8 UI feels like step backwards to me. Not just in the way you use it but also the way it looks. Sure, performance might be a bit better, but my GTX 670 handles Aero Glass just fine thank you very much. The other improvements do not matter much to me since my system is quite capable as is (SB I5 @ 4.8Ghz, 8 Gigs RAM & 240+256GB SSD). There are no must have exclusives either.

Nah, I'll just wait and see if Windows 9 corrects the mistakes in 8.
