If you really hate Windows 8, why did you use it?!
Toy Computers uses OS'es that is not Windows.
Windows is for real computers, and Windows 8 is an improvement to the Windows Brand (for me)
Really, it was that simple. You hate Windows 8? Then don't use it! You just waste your time by complaining and using an OS you hate.
Try reading properly.
The Metro interface is for toy computers. The underlying OS is sound and it is possible to almost completely remove the pointless Metro part and use the enhanced desktop OS. That's why I use it. I don't play with my computer it is a work tool, Metro is for toys not for grown ups who actually use their PC to work.
I reserve my right to state that there are faults in the product or if some part of it is crap and that's what Metro is IMO crap.
Windows 71/2 without Metro is not.
What's really worrying for those of us who don't use or don't like that Metro is that a few months ago we've been hearing Windows 8 is the last of the MS desktop operating systems to still have a desktop. Even with the Windows Blue updates, MS are stuborn enough to still not offer a choice of traditional UI.
And another one thing disappointing about Windows 8, I don't know if anyone of you have noticed this but there is no "easy" way to setup an adhoc network on Windows 8 like the way is was on Windows 7 without using anything third party again.
If you go to Network and Sharing Center then Setup a new connection or network, there is simply no shortcut to create a new adhoc network. So far this is what I found:
How To Create Wireless Ad Hoc Internet Connection In Windows 8
You'll have to get into that command line thing and tweak some of your wifi network's settings plus a little bit more blah blah blah to get the adhoc network going. You can also use third party tools like Wify Hotspot Creator or Connectify to setup one but I have tried using those tools on Windows 7 and they don't exactly behave like the native adhoc network on Windows 7 and I think you actually need SP1 or .NET Framework 4 and above to get adhoc networking on Windows 7 to its best shape.
The native adhoc network on Windows 7 can make the computers that connect to the adhoc network share Internet connection and also be some sort of WAN where people can play multiplayer games together. I have colleagues who have exploited that. However, I'm not sure if Wifi Hotspot Creator or Connectify can make the wireless network act like some sort of a WAN where multiplayer games can be played because what those tools really intend to do is make the computer where they are installed be the host of a Wifi access point.
I find it very stupid why Windows 8 doesnt have the create adhoc network shortcut on Network and Sharing Center.
Want evidence? MS is still building desktop development tools for VS2012 and beyond. Seriously ... I just would not bet a red cent on the death of the desktop. It's just too well understood, too deeply embedded in the market and is at the center of an ENORMOUS ecosystem. There are literally BILLIONS of systems using it. The "Modern" interface addresses a separate market but it ain't going to erase the previous one.
I'm not really sure , but there's this article. But it could have been something confused with Windows Blue.
Windows 9 Won?t Bring Back the Start Button, to Feature an Upgraded Start Screen - Softpedia
The way MS moved a few months ago, they put more priority on the development of the Metro side of things than the desktop and I get into the feeling that MS is slowly ripping off the desktop by removing the Start button and classic Start menu and might soon rip off more of the old features that would be gone by Windows 9.
All those MS stupidity will make Google sell more Chromium PC, Tablets and Laptop. And Android devices. We gone all end in the cloud. The General Balmer is shooting on his own troop.
