    Windows 8 Professional


    I know how you feel because I did the exact same thing. I installed then went right back to Widows 7. One day I decided that it was me and not the OS so I once again installed Windows 8, determined to make a go of it.

    So here I am and I'm glad I made the switch for a couple of reasons. Not the least being that I own a computer company an when my clients start asking me about the new OS I want to be able to give informed answers. As for the navigation, I am used to it now and it only took a couple of days so I can't see adding all the tweaks to make 8 look and act more like 7. You might as well stay with Windows 7.

    I don't think people are quite understanding 8 compared to 7, the fact is that the OS is designed for touch screens, a whole new user interface is needed for that, tbh, I love the new interface and even though it's a bit cumbersome to get used to, I find it a breath of fresh air compared to the usual start button and "desktop" environment, I'm using a mouse, the mail client is obviously designed for a smaller screen, that's the only issue I see with 8, the "apps" are designed for smaller screens and when using a 24" screen, it can really make everything seem out of place, I hope you can give it another go at a later date Jimjoh, maybe on a touchscreen device, it makes a lot more sense when used on a tablet.

    Be sure to check back in and let us know how this goes. I'd be interested in hearing how much easier Mountain Lion is to use.
