    Just out of curiosity, let's compare setting up Windows 8 / 8.1 with setting up Windows 7. How many of us can honestly say that when we installed Windows 7, we started to use it without whatsoever tweaking and customizations, without any modifications in folder structure, settings and so on?

    I have always had problems to understand this. Experienced geeks use hours (quite often days) to mod their Windows 7 to feel and look as they want to, install Classic Shell, change locations of some folders, spend hours to get the Start Orb and desktop icons to look as they want to, yet in case of Windows 8.1 a simple right click to open Taskbar Properties, selecting Boot to desktop and clicking OK seems to be too much.
    Hi Kari

    I think the OP sounds suspiciously like a TROLL so I wouldn't waste any more of your valuable time and always helpful information on this thread.

    Cheers

    Before you do that, go to Mac forum and post there, you'll find ready audience.

    Anyway, deleting a post even if it's the first post in the thread does not delete the thread in question. Only mods and admins can delete threads.

    It took some getting used to, but after a year, I'm comfortable with 8.
