Desperation with Windows 8 - can I trade down to XP ?

    Give it a few weeks and like the majority of window 8 haters you'll go from hating it to loving it, I did have to install Start8 which will give you the best of both worlds.

    Does anyone bother to read all the post in a thread? Post # 1 states the computer is new with Windows 8 preinstalled. Post # 6 states Classic Shell was installed and all is good.

    I don't see anything wrong with windows 8.1 so far and I just got my pc at Christmas time 2014. its not that bad actually a lot of people turned down vista when windows 7 was out but every os ive used ends up being ok after a bit of use and getting used to it.
