8 Yes [sucked].
Really? Have you guys even used Windows 8? It's virtually exactly the same as Windows 7. Even the hated "start screen/new UI/Metro" performancs exactly the same as the Win 8 start menu for the majority of people that use it
1. Click the lower left of your screen (Windows 7 and 8)
2. Type the first 3 or 4 letters of the program you want to run (Windows 7 and 8)
3. Hit Enter to launch it (Windows 7 and 8)
In addition, I'm the only one that runs Windows 8 in my office because everyone else hates it. Yet they all come up to me and say "See, even you're still running Windows 7." I tell them to look closer, it's 8, yet they couldn't even tell the difference because the desktop is the same, which is where I spend 100% of my time.
Ignore the stupid Metro UI if you don't like it. I do. Was there nothing you ignored in Windows 7? You played Purple Palace all day? Or you like Windows 7 inspite of Purple Palace? Get over your complaining about an OS you haven't even used.
