    I don't like the plain, so called "modern" theme as I feel it is just a dummied-down theme (requiring less bandwidth) used as a universal theme by Microsoft marketers trying to placate and entice PC users into buying a Windows phone or some other Microsoft small-screen hand-held device.

    I have two very nice, high-resolution monitors on my PC, fully capable of displaying no less than 16.8 million colors. So why use a boring black and white picture of a window pain - err, pane?

    I'm with Brink. Out with the old. In with the new.

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    I'm with Brink too. Windows 8 with the touch interface is actually easy to use if you give it a chance. Even with a mouse, I can navigate, split screens, switch to other programs so quickly. I missed the Start Menu at first, but now I don't give it much thought.

    Of course, there is a time to use the Desktop, especially in programs not written for touch. But that's the beauty. You CAN have both.

    If you don't have a touch screen, then you'll probably stick with the Desktop for the most part. Even though I don't use them, install a Start Menu emulator.

    But be ready for Windows 10. The new menu is great, even in the first release.

    This really has nothing to do with the interface, only the icon for the start menu.
