I hate windows 8. Windows 7 works well and windows 8 is really only functional on Xbox. I don't like to rant like the rest of you.

You realize that probably at least 69% of the people who complain about Windows 8 either use it or have used it, right?

My laptop came back in June with Windows 8 pre-installed (and stayed that way for about a month). I installed 8.1 preview on it at least twice and those times I used it for at least a week or two. That doesn't count the other two computers that I used before that also ran Windows 8 for probably over a year (including the preview release). All of these computers I used pretty regularly, at least 3 hours a day depending. To say simply that I've used Windows 8 before would be an understatement. Yes, I do dislike the system, which you might know if you read my post on the previous page. Surprisingly enough, people can have legitimate reasons to dislike something.

Did you upgrade/downgrade to Linux?

No, but it doesn't matter anyway. Windows 8 will be on PC's for years to come and unless people really care to take the time to get a new OS they learn to like it.....

You can also set it so that the start screen doesn't even come up when log in.

Upgrade. The only thing I lost are Windows-only compatible games that I don't even really play, and besides I got a lot of learning experience and an obvious speed and power boost (as well as efficiency) from my laptop.

Well, since this thread is about Windows 8 per se, that's purely speculation and doesn't really relate. Yeah, Microsoft is gaming a corrupt system. It has been for a while now.
