Apparently you think it's OK. I think it stinks. I can't use Windows 8 for my purposes BECAUSE I can't choose to configure it so that it looks and works MY way. I am the customer here and I get to decide what is right for me for my own reasons! It is totally irrelevant to me that others find Windows 8 OK.
You can do some work arounds - with effort, hacks and 3rd party programs - but still it comes up short.
That is because we want Windows on a desktop pc.
Win8 is not for that. It is for a tablet.
The desktop users are being deprecated as MS chases a mythical tablet user they think they can ensnare.
How does it feel to be deprecated - like a windows program they have lined up for the chop?
