You can either embrace or ignore "modern". I largely ignore it.
For those that need more than what is provided by windows itself, there are quite a few 3rd party apps like Classic Shell or Stardock.
Like myself. I started with Classic Shell and ended up Stardocking my installation. Any last niggles with 8 sorted. It's that simple.
By mixing native Win and Stardock I have an OS that suits me
usage. So much so I'm sticking with the vanilla Win 8.
IMO, there are way too many people whining about Win 8 given the fact that it is not significantly different from Win 7. I feel the hatred for it is totally unfounded.
It is rather pointless. Unnecessary vitriol.
Although I think it's almost mandatory to report distaste after first usage. 8 seems to have a habit of just annoying people on first sight. I know my initial impressions were not favorable.
Then I installed Classic Shell... Irritation gone. A very easy fix.
If it were unfixable, then the hate would have a leg to stand on, but it is easily fixable and thus no leg.
