I've been using windows 8, and if you just stick to the desktop and ignore those weird square things, it's identical to windows 7.

I don't even miss the start button. I only used it to find applications, and now I just use the search button for that.

The desktop is a better windows 7. The start menu can be useful if you set it up a bit. Apps are generally useless, but the occasional one (mainly songza, netflix, and some default ones) are nice. If you can deal with change like a normal person, windows 8 is better than 7.

it changes the a lot of system and made it difficult to customize. As the only technician in a company of 100's, I say windows 8 made my job even worse.

I've tried that add on and it just ****** everything up for me. It showed up once then the pop up was frozen and then the button never showed up again.

I think the start menu is really easy to use.
I just do not use the apps.

I hear it's also slightly faster. (5% or something) So if you're a frame whore like me it's perfect.

Start up and shutdown are much faster than that though. I nearly halved my startup time by going with 8.

So rather than using Win 7, you are ignoring what makes Win8 Windows 8 and use it as much as Win 7 as possible?

Your choice brah

A lot of the most current laptops have their BIOS locked so that nothing before Windows 8 can be installed.
Well it can, but with way more effort than you'd like to spend on something that should be simple.

1st problem: I find it difficult to believe that they can actually lock it
2nd problem: bios access is not required to replace windows 8

win8 takes up less RAM and will soon be more compatible with stuff than win7... or so i've heard.

Well, it is also faster, and does come with a few miscellaneous benefits.

Mostly just a faster Win 7 though.
