That's the problem it needs to stay on a phone or tablet and not on the PC which if 8 is unchanged be called a PC (personal confusion)

I am not really up and the whole win 8 thing but I wonder if they went with metro to keep people busy so they wouldn't notice all the other crap they are adding to it like the call home feature or any other invasive program they have added .

I suspect a majority of computer users never open the control panel for the life of their computer.

Sure I'll take it, I can use the extra $15. Where can I send my banking information to so that it can be deposited in my account before downloading win8?

the software, programs that most people use I am surprised that more people are not just switching over to Linux because Linux is free and is updated all of the time. the only reason I am not using Linux all of the time is because I game and most games are for windows based PCs .

Linux is far from ugly, it can be whatever you want it to be.

I've tried KDE, Gnome, Xfce, and have been unable to make any of them not be ugly compared to either Windows or Mac OS.
