Well unfortunately Windows 8 CP is very bad. And it is exactly like that. You cannot use it because there are so many problems. So WINDOWS 8 NIGHTMARES PREVIEW is a good name for it.Why don't Microsoft just let up and make Windows 8 with a normal Windows 7 desktop and start menu?

But I don't think they are going to do that. Andrea Borman.

Send Microsoft your feedback if you want them to change the Windows 8 desktop experience. But quit your bitching on here! It is annoying to no end. </rant>

If you tried using Windows 8 on something other then a mediocre netbook you'd realize it's actually faster then Windows 7.

Metro is here to stay. If you don't like it then just keep using Windows 7 and stop trying to drag everyone down with you.

If she tried using it at all, since she has no idea what metro actually is.

Well I wrote to my local emperor d. sidious and he agreed that the threat Windows 8 nightmare edition represents is too grave to go unanswered.
He said he'll be sending some imperial destroyers to take out the OS factory in Redmond "in the coming weeks/months" so fear not, we should be Windows safe for some time to come.

I've read a lot of comments in different parts of the web that complain about Windows 8. Apparently it's not going over well despite a lot of fanboys belief to the contrary. I feel Metro is okay but the desktop experience is poorly done.

Yes, they work fine. Currently you either have to set them up on the desktop IE or browse to the IE gallery here.

Easylist doesn't seems to provide adblocking but TPL only.

See? Depends on your perception as to how you see the situation.

Fanboy seems to block ads well. I had nary an ad since enabling it on IE9 and now IE10.

well ive been using CP from day one, have no problems with the start button. I have to say i didnt like DP, and bitched about it, after using CP for awhile now, im enjoying windows 8 and don't mind it. Looking forward to seeing the RTM and what Microsoft decided to go with.
