Why people do not want to install Windows 8, this thread is going to be outdated and invalid with the release of Windows 8.1 though.

Not really. It will just continue on with 8.1. So far, I've seen nothing about 8.1 that would convince me to upgrade to it. Granted, it's an improvement over 8 but there's nothing that would justify the expense of replacing the three Win 7 retail and one OEM licenses I have that are already meeting my needs better than even 8.1 can. Even if there is a "Win 9" that removes any objections I may have to Win 8 or 8.1 (Bill Gates has hinted at it), I've already committed to using Win 7 and Office 2010 through the end of 2019.

Last fall, I only had one Win 7 machine (the notebook I bought the previous summer). I took a hard look a Win 8 and Office 2013 didn't like what I was seeing so I decided to get my Win 7 licenses and upgrade form Office 2007 to Office 2010 while I still could. M$ had their chance and blew it.

8.1 is like 8.0 only more so, with a little bit of disguise added.

I found W8.1 to be slightly less annoying than W8.
I haven't actually tried using it for anything though.

The Sandy Bridge like I said I use the Classic shell and the only thing I cannot find way around is the start button icon change. Plenty of advice but no easy way of downloading or installing the start orb that are offered.
Hey John, put the icon in the classic shell folder. In the Classic Shell Menu select Start Button Tab Menu, then select BUTTON iMAGE. Navigate using the control on the right and select the image, then restart Classic Shell. Sorry no screen shots confined to couch resting
Thanks mate I'll try this out when I get up tomorrow

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 ?
