Can someone honestly tell me why people hate Windows 8? - Page 2

As far as I know all the 8.1 start button will do is give you a menu of full screen metro apps which will throw you out of desktop mode. Its not an improvement really. Ill be sticking with Modernmix and Start8.

I attempted to use Windows 8 on two different systems, HTPC and daily driver, and each one is back on Windows 7 Professional X64 SP1. The reasons I stopped using Windows 8 and downgraded to Windows 7 are the following:
  • Did not like metro interface
  • Too many steps to do same basic functions in Windows 7...ie search via windows key takes you to apps, settings, and others crap
  • Inconsistency in UI and Menus....Like create a new account on desktop puts you in Metro interface
  • Useless requirements to pay for new software when it functioned perfect on 7. Arcsoft Total Media Theatre for HTPC
  • I had to search Google on how to shutdown the computer

Things I did like about Windows 8
  • Baked in USB3 and SATA 6
  • File copy actually works without having to use Robocopy
  • Task Manager
