Yes we are. Through metro -__-

Metro has horribly dumbed down the Windows GUI. Why on Earth would they get rid of the start menu and over-complicate things with forcing you to make a bunch of dumb tiles to use your programs. It's excess time you don't need to be spending and it's just adding more bloat. Experienced users will stick with 7 or a way to put back in the start button and get rid of Metro.

one click (maybe two), haven't booted into 8 in a while simply because I haven't moved all my programs over, gets you everything that was on the start menu.

OMFG THAT IS THE BIGGEST DEAL IN THE WORLD! THEY MOVED MAH BUTTON. BETTER GET ON THE INTERNET AND COMPLAIN ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY SILLY!

Seriously it is not hard to find what you need. If it takes you more than ten minutes to figure out the new UI and where everything is, you are most definitely not a "POWER USER".

It literally took me 5 minutes to figure everything out and I like it a lot.

Looking forward to Windows 9 to turn things back to normal.

Forced metro is the only real issue for the user , otherwise it's still an improved and faster win 7 .

The desktop is still there. If you don't want to use metro, you barely have to. Just for things that you would rarely use the start button for anyway.

I agree on the improvements and it being faster. Everything is faster.

I have it dual booting on my machine. It takes my 7 boot over a minute. 8 takes less than 20 seconds.

I download, install, and boot games twice as fast or more on the exact same hardware.... How can people hate this?

I just can't comprehend how people can hate it when it works so much better than 7.

I find that once I learn the new things, I am far more efficent with Windows 8. The insanely increased performance is a huge win too.

Windows 8 uses so much less resources, and so much faster it is shame some will be stuck with Windows 7. In a year or two, they will all be using a rebadged Windows 8 as 9 and lovin it!

Just like how they hated Windows Vista, and clinging to Windows 7.

As someone who hates having icons on my desktop, aside from my object dock, this interface irritates me like none other.

Somebody2057d ago

Same here. The only icons that I do have have on the desktops are the My Computer and the Recycle Bin. The only app/widget that I have on there is Rainlendar to help me organize things.

I've seen some of my friends' PCs/laptops and their desktops are full of icons, shortcuts and Office documents.
