Okay. A lot of people hate it. I get that. I remember seeing it and thinking..."HUH??? Where's the start button???"
I tried installing a start button once, something called Pokki? It spent half the time trying to convince me to buy apps though. Thankfully, it didn't install anything else. (Seriously, I'm careful what I installed since I installed this-> http://lp.jzip.com/?sysid=102&appid=100 which is going to set your homepage to some dodgy search and redirect a lot of your searches to places filled to the brim with malware/phishing sites/viruses...and yes, I did click to not install a lot of the stuff it wanted me to. On an off topic note, if anyone is looking for a program that will open zip files, RAR files that is free and wont spam you with adverts, please use 7Zip. You won't get any annoying new toolbars with links that try to try to get you to download free smileys in exchange for a couple of Trojan horses.) (No, I am not trying to sell or promote 7Zip. i am not the mystery spammer that's offering escort services and air conditioning units).
Back on topic...seriously, is there anyone here who can actually stand Windows 8? Because I sort of can...the start button annoys me, probably because I've used to hitting the windows button and searching for what I need now. I don't get half the apps that came with it, but I've uninstalled the majority of them. I guess I've just gotten used to it.
