Windows 7: Windows 8 is so ugly

^ I agree. I do not like the 2D approach they've taken. GPU's and CPU's are plenty powerful enough for the devices that will be running W8, that we can have a little eye candy. I'm using Aero on Vista and W7, and I don't find it laggy.

The thing is, some folks have done their own personal shoot-out tests pitting W7 vs. W8 and found that W8 runs a little smoother/faster in some cases. With a W7 theme mod on W8, you should be all set to go. But that is, like Deacon White said, if you really need to get a new operating system. For an existing computer, W7 is more than enough for most people. If you have a large tablet device, well then W8 is probably the better choice.

This all comes back to it being a tablet OS. In that medium it makes perfect sense.
I just hope win 9 at least brings back the desktop as we know it.
More than likely it'll be something else trying to force everyone into purchasing new touchscreen devices though...

I'd hope that W8 customers wouldn't have to wait for W9, and could get a service pack that provides a "retro" desktop option if so desired.

I don't think it is ugly. Maybe a bit of organisation of the tiles (shortcuts) is necessary but once that's done, I find the appearance and usage acceptable enough on my Desktop computer:

If I had the option to enable aero and put my files back the way I want them without jumping through hoops, it would pretty much eliminate my complaints.

So it seems the endless stream of gripe threads has now migrated to Win8. Over the years there has almost always been one going complaining about Win7, having to given up XP, etc.

This one is funny because it greets us every day with a title that sounds like "Yo mama is so ugly" jokes.

"Your OS is so ugly it looks like a Playskool Christmas toy, except the buttons work on that."

M.E. I remember by far being the least stable at the very least. It was a blue screen nightmare when it was working at its best.

I liked Vista as well, once all of my necessary drivers were released. Us TechNet subscribers had it early, and really had some rough times finding drivers. At least it improved a little after consumer release.

Some programs look ugly in the taskbar.
I'm enjoying Windows 7 and I really like how the taskbar functions (I use it as a application launcher pretty much, as an alternative to using icons on my desktop)... except with some software. For example, I have a game I play often. I pinned the updater to the game on the taskbar, since it's...
