It's been proven time and time again that opinions on tech sites mean absolutely nothing. When iOS released most people on here called it a joke and a failure and that it would never ever become popular. They were wrong. When XP released people hated it and said it would fail and it went on to be the most popular Windows OS yet.
It clearly states something, ProWin8 startless menu fans are not as many as they though they were, and so far, they are not a mayority, thus, right now more than half of the public was not correctly taken in account by MS, much less given a choice.
Probably a bug and not an intended action?

Not sure how I could have made that any more obvious.

You continue to say that, but continue to post no credible sources.

So even though everything works the same apart from the start screen, you still want to hurl your tower out the window?
I've been using Windows for more than a decade and it's the first release that's made me want to physically hurl my tower out the window in frustration (and yes I have used both ME and Vista)

I have a printer, 2 external drives and wireless keyboard / mouse dongle connected to my computer at all times on Windows 8 and I don't have that problem at all?
Actually I've never had USB devices start randomly malfunctioning (and staying non functional even after a reboot or unplug then plug back in) in ME, Vista, or Windows 7.
I could say the same thing about you in this thread and any threads about guns, just look at your avatar and signature (that said I'm on the same side as you when it comes to gun control).
Oh and dropping the condescending arrogance might be a good start as well

You know how to fix a badly made driver too?
It's not a driver issue, I know how to install device drivers.
What? You can install XP drivers on Vista/7 too, doesn't mean they're going to work 100%.
In fact my USB chipset, motherboard chipset, graphics card, and sound card come in unified driver packages so I even install the same drivers on 8 as I did on 7. Works flawlessly on 7, doesn't on 8. If 7 can do it and 8 cant I think you need a new excuse

Edited my post when you edited yours.
All I know is, I use the exact same driver packages as explained above. They work flawlessly in Windows 7 and don't in 8. I also use the exact same software as I did on Windows 7. Given that the OS was the only variable I don't really buy the driver as being the cause.
Windows 7, 8 and Vista worked flawlessly for me on every setup I've had it on too.
In fact Windows 7 worked flawlessly for me on every setup I've had it on.

Oh oops I thought you meant that you got all those drivers in just one .exe file and I was like wtf I've never heard of that ever happening.
The motherboard I have is listed in my signature. The Intel chipset drivers come in a unified pack, as do the Renesas USB drivers that I use, I also have a Realtek ALC885 sound card, and an ATI 6950 all of which use unified driver packages.
