Comment: Use compare of Win 7 to 8 (Score 1) 310

I just bought a new pc with 8 on it and have been using it for 5 days. Before this I have been using 7 on my other 4 computers. It appears that Microsoft just wanted something for their people to do. After this period of time I have removed 8 and installed 7 on the new machine. 8 is just to confusing and difficult to use. I think the best comparison is Win 8 and Vista. Sorry Microsoft but Win 7 is great and easy to use.
