[QUOTE=FreqNasty_RiseS;2673158]Brad is right (no pun intended). But some people would prefer to complain about Windows 8 than use StartIsBack and get all the benefits of Windows 8 along with a Windows 7 Start menu.[/QUOTE]
Yup, that’s exactly right, because I shouldn’t have to pay one red cent to correct major flaws that shouldn’t have been there in the first place. I shouldn’t also have to put up with a UI that looks and acts like complete st, a UI that can’t be changed without performing the equivalent of major brain surgery. I shouldn’t have to fight tooth and nail with a godd*n OPERATING SYSTEM to get it to do with I WANT, for Christ’s sake. (It does make me appreciate the merits of Linux in this area, to be honest, especially now that I’m starting to use it to dabble in Android development.)
But I won’t continue to sit here and defend my objections to this fustercluck of an OS. I don’t have to. The lackluster market response, and the near-universal loathing for this piece of s**t, is doing it for me. Continue to defend it like Apple fanboys if you wish, that’s your right, but don’t expect people to just meekly shut up and take it, because you’re going to be very disappointed. People like myself are going to continue to voice our disappointment and disapproval, because that’s OUR right as much as it’s yours to defend this POS.
