Does it really matter? You had your reasons. More power to ya.

Btw, there must be a thousand Windows 8 threads on Neowin. You should have no trouble finding opinions, pro & con, by doing a search.

I agree. My couch computer also got down graded. My main system with start8 is fine, but metro is completely useless / worthless. Dispite what people say Metro is more clicks. Just wanted to get that in before this thread gets locked in 3..............2..........................1. :)

I have to agree, better than turning into into another boring long thread of views which are just peoples choices. And to me as long as we have a choice, that's all that matters. :)

@OP

Tried Windows 8, downgrades to windows 7.

The constant flipping between the Desktop and Metro apps was bothering me.
Taking 5-6 steps where on Windows 7 it took 2-3 steps on a lot of things.
The metro apps are not as full featured or useful as there desktop versions.
Only one metro app full screen open at a time.

I don't hate Windows 8, I just dislike it.
