    Exactly.

    The non - computer geeks didn't like it.

    After a very harsh start to using Windows 8, which turned out to be a memory issue, and not an intrinsic problem with windows 8, I am very impressed with everything BUT the metro interface. I spent $5 on Start 8, and am now pretty much satisfied. I have been using Windows a long time. I thought 98 was OK, XP was a lot better, Vista was so so, Windows 7 was great, and Windows 8 may turn out to be even better, especially since I saw the hand writing on the wall about the metro interface and put Start 8 on in about 15 minutes after I booted up Windows 8. (first I had to figure out the new interface so I could download a trial copy of Start 8)

    I HATED windows 8... until I actually USED it.

    It's pointless to resist...

    I was exactly the same, I installed the preview twice but deleted it through frustration within 30 minutes but now I've bit the bullet and installed it properly and love it. I couldn't live without a start button which makes it much more usable and gives you the choice!!

    Dont hate Windows 8 cause at the end of the day or year, you ll definitely end up using.
    I pity the ignorance of ones who haven't used it.

    Another old C64 jockey! Good one. I still have mine, and a lot of tape software, but most of the
    disks died long ago. It runs (ran, the disk died) GEOS on two 1541 Mk 2's, one for the OS and
    one for programs. It also has a 'Freeze Machine II' cartridge fitted.

    They were the days.

    Wenda.
