You nailed the problem, and you're asking why?
I am, because after a single install for classic shell, you get a Windows that functions almost identically to a Windows 7 box, but with better hardware support and smoother under-the-hood experience that seems to work better than XP. So people are whining about having to install a classic shell and tweak a configuration setting to go directly to the desktop instead of the studid tiles screen... and I find it laughable, because whether it's Windows, Linux, or MacOS, I normally spend the first few hours tweaking it to my liking. And I'll repeat what I wrote above (yes, I know, you mentioned IOS and Android, not Linux), that Linux users who complain about having to tweak things are being both moronic and ironic.
I understand some things are different... going to the corners to get a menu, for example, but when you're using the desktop the same way you'd use it in XP or 7, running things from the start menu, double-clicking icons, etc., those other menus are really seldom needed anyway... so people are complaining about something that they would hardly ever use? Getting to the system configuration, for example? If you're system is working, you shouldn't need to visit it every day.... most people will log in, double-click on a few programs to get them running, and use it just like they used 7 or XP before... only Windows 8/8.1, in my experience, runs a lot more smoothly than XP and 7, in my experience.
Granted, the vast majority of the time I'm on my computer I'm using Linux, but I do have to use Windows from time to time, and I just don't get the whining... a lot of people hate MS (not a big fan myself), some of them get all mental when they find molehill to turn into a mountain.
