Fixed that for you. Truth is, 10 minutes to learn such a foreign UI is actually not bad. It didn't take long for Vista to become a great OS. An OS that paved the way for 7's easy win.
Thus, it is so (more or less) with 8. New OS new interface, which BTW M$ will eventually change so desktop users aren't encumbered by the touch screen shenanigans. Yes, I would like to save 50% off the OS now while I can.
It's a fact that 7/Vista will not have further DX support going forward (DX 11+) I am a gamer. So, yes, in short....er...well I want Windows 8. Or rather what it does/will bring to the table in the future. Faster boot times? Yes Please. On demand services? Lower resources? Wow! A less bloated OS that people have wanted for years. We got it.
But because you have to take a different road to get to where you want to go, your willing to throw the bath water out with the baby? Admittedly, M$ screwed up by alianating non touch screen users. But they will remedy that. And even if they don't you can go to stardock and for 5 bucks get that functionality back.
There are plenty of desktop users that once have learned the new UI have grown to really like it. You may not, heck I don't see myself 'loving' it. But as I said, I am a gamer. Once BF3 is loaded, I don't care about the start button much as I take your tags.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandpa. Not like the passengers in his car, screaming and crying.
