You'd think that. But remember that we've been in a bit of a gaming dark-age, where the min-sys-reqs for a game were relatively low. That is until the 8th gen consoles shipped and developers were finally able to raise the hardware bar from a C2D/2GB/8800GT for their absolute minimums. AC:U is the first AC game from the 8th gen hardware set. Black Flag, while available for Gen8, had it's PC version sourced from the Gen7 release with much lower system requirements than Unity.

It's not the lack of a Start Button that gets me. It's the whole 'forced touch-UI' experience, the fact that half the system's settings are in a classic dialog and the other half are in a Metro dialog, the complete lack of warning when the system is going to kick you in one direction or another. Performance-wise, I'm sure it's fine. But it's the user experience that completely turns me off. If they'd done it right the first time (i.e. Windows 10), then I'd probably have taken the time to upgrade. But Win8/8.1 will never have a place on any system I'm using.

Then why did they throw a shitfit when they found out CM actually did bundle GApps early in it's lifespan? Ever since CM7 (So far as I recall, could be as early as 6), you have to flash GApps seperately or else the system is somewhat useless initially. That didn't used to be the case, nor is it with any CM edition devices like Oppo's N1 or the OnePlus One.

The first version always gets thrown away.
