    You probably are using it wrong.

    Yes, if he doesn't like it - then it must be his fault.

    I like some of the new features added to Windows 8 like better overall security, but I do not care for the Start Screen (aka Metro), so I compromised and used Ex7forWin8 to add the Windows 7 Start Menu. Now my Windows 8 desktop works like 7 and I am a happy camper.

    If one cannot adapt to change, then yes it is.

    Why do people think that it's all about the inability to accept change. People can choose for themselves whether they actually like it. Cars change from year to year, but that doesn't mean that I like each model released. A sequel to a movie doesn't have to be loved simply because people need to accept change. Why should the newest release of Windows be any different?

    I am pretty sure he was joking. There is no virtue, per se, in changing just because something is newer.

    Well Mitchell,

    as most here know, i turned my back to Windows 7 some 15 months ago.

    When i want to work fast.....thank god there is the new start menu.

    Which turns you mostly to the old dekstop view.

    Do not want to search for anything at all, that's why for me the start menu is great.

    But i understand others who use their pc for fun and games are not that interested in the new start menu.

    The old taskbar......i really hate this now.

    All i have there right now = Word, Excel, File Explorer, Outlook (because it is nice to see if new mails arrived) and IE.

    That is it.

    But in the new start menu i have right now 46 tiles.

    Still trying to see what others like about Windows 7 + the old start screen and tiles.

    Jeff

    Mitchell:

    There's two basic reasons to upgrade to Win8 over Win7:
    1) It provides new hardware-related features that you want or need, and
    2) It provides a new UI that you want or need.

    As to 1), post #2 already lists some of them, and if you Google, you can probably find a thread (even on this forum) about new features that Win8 brings to PCs. I did that, read through the features -- and came to the conclusion that none of them were anything I needed but some were worth trying out.

    As to 2) if the new UI is not something you want to use, then you fall back on 1).

    Newer is not always better -- it is really only different.
