    There must be someone else in the world, who has looked into this?

    Believe it. Took us about 5 minutes of using the OS to uninstall and toss the disks on the shelf after testing it.

    Copy and paste this and send it off to your execs.

    "After evaluating Windows 8, I have determined that the best course of action is to wait until Microsoft releases Windows 9. We can continue to use Windows 7 which provides us with everything we need to operate our business."

    Best part is that sticking with Windows 7 carries no additional cost.

    You might get a promotion for this.

    Let us know.
    I love this, Ill put it as the opening paragragh to my report, Thank you for all your help I'll keep you informed how I progress.

    Given the option between Windows 7 and 8 to deploy, 8 would be less of a hassle to deal with after a few months. There will be user issues with the Start Screen, but if the Start Screen is configured purely for the Desktop, all that needs to be shown is that the Start button is there but hidden and works the same, and the Settings Charms to shut down. Heck, one could even make the power tiles right there in a separate group.
    Could be, Coke. Time will tell.
