Oh quit the whining already!
Get Windows 8, install ClassicShell from http://www.classicshell.net/ and you're set. You've got your Start button back along with the menu and you log in straight to the desktop instead of the Metro interface. From now on it works just like Windows 7.
And about moving options around, just how often do you really change those? If all you do all day is change your prefs, then yes - Windows 8 is not for you. If OTOH you just configure the OS once and forget about it, than finding the settings is not such a big issue, even if they are moved to some other place.
With Mozilla's frequency of spitting out new and newer versions, I just can't keep up!
No problem, just turn automatic updates on.
