    Well ,Ray, it looks like you have brought the hornets out of the nest.

    Difficult for many of us to comprehend why some are offended because not everyone loves a piece of software they seem besotted with.

    It's as if you called their wife an ugly cow.

    What is it about them that makes them like that ?

    I don't know.

    It does seem they don't know what win 8 is for.

    Nice try, but belittling me with hyperbole doesn't weaken my argument. Offended? lol No, I'm being practical. Seems kind of pointless to turn a newer operating system into an older one. If you have the option to use the older one, which will be relevant for at least a few more years, why keep complaining and trying to turn it into the old one? Use the old one. Problem solved. If you don't like the new interface, go back to the old one. Or is constantly complaining about 8 more productive?

    Why do you imagine it is about the interface per se ?

    The interface is a symptom of the disease.

    It is unfortunate the UI weirdness has distracted attention.

    What other reason is there? Most of Metro is completely optional. What's left is the interface. Instead of doing everything in your power to avoid the interface, why not do the easy thing and go back to 7?

    And do you have any documentation? Links? Etc about this Markmonitor being associated with Windows 8? ISPs might be utilizing it. That's a different story.

    Yes, the Cloud is becoming a bigger thing now. It's still entirely optional.

    Oh, they think MS is leading the blind sheep astray to "soak" more money out of them. Never enough wool kind of thing.

    MS the evil monopoly empire they think. Geez....Talk about hornets....

    No it doesn't. Without resorting to third party programs, I can't have the user interface that I enjoy with Windows 7.
    In case you haven't realized, this isn't Windows 7. If you want Windows 7 that badly, go back to Windows 7. Honestly, if you're still complaining about the Start Screen, which is faster and more convenient to navigate than the 7 start menu, you obviously just dislike Metro. No one is going to chastise you for going back.
    Another one that doesn't have a clue.

    Who is actually wanting to turn a new operating system into an older one? All we are talking about is the look and feel of the interface - personalisation.

    I didn't post that Ray, it might look like I had from a quick glance at your above quote. Please correct it. Wouldn't want anyone to think I would say anything like that.
