    Vista had horrible machines, but after that dead OS came a great one.

    Windows 8 will break the chain, it isn't bad.

    Honestly, given the choice between Vista and 8 I would pick Vista every time!!!
    Unsure why people cannot understand that Windows 8 is not for everybody. These graphical changes and fundamental shifts are not something that we can simply just look beyond. Many are simply not going to "get used to it".

    Did you like Luna better?

    I honestly couldn't tell you what Luna even entails.

    What I don't like about Windows 8 is the start screen, the tiles for launching things, the lack of the start button menu system, the full screen applications (which just make me shake my head), and an interface that is more bland and boring than OSX.

    As far as Coke Robot goes, he's so over the top and gaa-gaa over MS that I cannot hardly even take anything he says seriously.

    Pparks1, what do you mean by "entails"

    I don't know what Luna consists of. Is it a color scheme, is it a design, etc. It just doesn't mean anything to me when you say Luna. It's just like I cannot say exact what Aero means, but I know it has 3 dimensionality, tranparency, rounded corners and looks a hell of a lot better than the super drab and boring windows we have in Windows 8. It's like Mac OSX, just even more boring.

    Windows 8 RTM (Retinas taking damage...)


    I'll actually say that I want transparency with blur("glass"), but not Aero. Rounded corners and the stripes in win7 and vista did look quite silly. I really prefer "authentic" looking transparency such as what was seen in the RP. In the end, though, I would pick the 7 look over the 8 RTM look.
