Re: So to summarise:
Did you actually have a point to make Philip? Because nowhere did I say W8 UI was better than W7, or that it was good. Nowhere did I say Ribbon was good either (though I think it is).
What I said was that all this "W8 is unusable" guff is just toy-throwing bullshit. I can count on one hand the number of times W8 has caused me any problems actually using my PC or getting work done. It may be a step backwards, but anyone with a brain and IT experience should be able to adapt within a few hours if not a few minutes.
The OS, like the PC, is just a tool to get work done. Learn how to use it, don't lie about being too stupid to know how to.
And grubbing for votes on a site where "M$" is enough to make people titter, how low you sink sir.
