Me too. I bought a laptop that was preloaded with 8 Pro, and for what I use it for, it's more of a pain than a convenience. I don't want to use a hotmail/msn/live email just to use the Apps that are already on it! Even the Skype app asked for a msn sign in before it would even start. Uninstall that crap and installed the official client. Steam did a weird thing too when it first installed, I wasn't sure if it completed properly or not, but seems to run ok now for chatting, no gaming. Even a friend who did the same and bought a new laptop formatted it and put 7 on.

Bottom line: I'd go back to 7 if they offered it on cheap laptops anymore.
