Having used every desktop version of Windows since 3.11,
8 has been the only version where I couldn't sit down in front of it and find what I wanted straight away.
I don't oppose change, but MS has made a huge mistake by not giving people what they want. Technically, my phone, tablet, and desktop all run Linux, but it doesn't take a genius to see why Android is not installed on my desktop.
Take the hint, MS, and make whatever-you're-not-calling-Metro go away on desktops - no more half-measures.
