I really hope they keep the non-Retina MacBook Pro in their line-up and upgrade it to Haswell. There's a chance, because from what I've read, they're pretty popular in the education market. Right now, apart from the Mac mini, it's the only user-serviceable computer in Apple's line-up, with easy RAM and disk upgrades. And yes, some of us actually need that Ethernet port and a DVD-ROM drive!

This. Plus iOS has pretty decent restriction policies you can set up on the device itself or through external PC applications like the Apple Configurator, though for whatever reason these features are marketed towards business and education users, so no average Joe knows about them.

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.
