I have been using Windows 8 for probably over a year now, and to be honest, I still cant adjust to it. Windows 8.1 is coming out that will ease the pain for those who aren't fond of Windows 8, but I thought why not just reinstall Windows 7 for the boot to desktop and the start button? I also after a year of after switching between my Windows 8 pc to my Windows 7 pc, I like Windows 7 slightly better. The start menu seems to be better for productivity, the speed of Windows 7 is not drastically different than 8 and the Aero interface seems nicer than the flat look in 8. From my experience of using both OSs, Windows 7 is honestly better suited for desktops than Windows 8
Have you gone back or contemplated of going back to Windows 7?
