And like you, I also resent M$'s "Our way or the highway" attitude about W8.

If it comes down to "their way or the highway," I'll take the "highway".
Meantime I'll stay with W7 till M$ comes to their senses.

LOL!! I always disable that stuff anyway it eats into the performance of the machine - I do that from Brink's tutorial on Optimisation Optimize Windows 7

It has no effect whatsoever on the performance of this i7 2670QM Sandy Bridge laptop with 8G Ram & a 2G Ge-Force.

So I strongly resent not being able to have it should I so wish.

Other than that, I'm just fine with W8.

Yes, mine has Classic Shell, and boots direct to the desktop.

Metro is there if I want it (which isn't often) but doesn't intrude the rest of the time.

Aero has such low overhead it can actually use more resources to turn it off.

I've always wondered why when presented with the sheer beauty of Win7, one would want to get rid of it to have the government-file-cabinet hideousness of Win2000 Classic Theme, or Win8's own droll ugliness.

Aero glass and stuff runs on the GPU in moments when it does not have anything better to do. When playing most games all effects are temporarily disabled. But even if not I doubt anyone would notice the performance impact anyway.

I mean, that stuff was right in the Vista times when they acted like morons and pushed the OEM to place Vista on low-end hardware from 2005-2007 that was barely capable of supporting it, but with stuff made after 2010? Not quite. Even an Atom n455 can run Aero at full effects without any performance impact while doing the heaviest thing it can do (watch a youtube video at 720p, damn crappy flash player, the same video is less than 50% if played by VLC).

Yeah, followed the thread from day one. Plenty of neat articles about windows 8 getting posted every now and then.

It is a tablet OS ported to the desktop environment, and will never work well as such. Apple would be proud.
Apple is laughing. They know how stupid that move is. Their laptops and mini-PCs still run the same-ish apple interface, they didn't move their tablet/phone interface to their PCs as well.

I'm surprised that this thread is still running

M$ made an oops and will not admit it.....

Maybe win8 might be like DOS 6, as it wasn't till DOS 6.22 that they got it working... (well mostly)
And that was from DOS 5, which was quite good,,,,, as far as M$ dos goes..

I guess until "More Than 3 Out of 4 Enthusiasts Accept Windows 8" is the norm

Or 8 is dismantled and SP2 comes out

Foxit Reader appears to have gone old world Spartan in keeping with W8. Maybe it's a sign of the times.

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
