    This is why there would be issues.

    I'm much more dorky than nerdy. I wish I was a lot more nerdy cause then I would know what Johan was talking about.
    I am slowly figuring 8 out. It's kinda like a game and you have to figure it out, a mind challenge because there is no manual.

    8 sucks. I managed to survive with it for 3 weeks and then decided to downgrade back to 7. Best. Decision. Of. My. Life.

    Here is a 36-page interface manual for Windows 8. It "covers all aspects of the Start screen, from basic navigation to picture passwords, then delves into features like the new File Explorer, File History, and business-level stuff like BitLocker and Windows To Go."

    Meh. It's just easier for me to use 7, and since it's older, it's had time to work out all the kinks. 8 was designed for touchpad use, so naturally there are going to be some discrepancies when you use it for a PC.

    Win 8 in desktop mode is mostly the same as 7, so I don't get the hate. I have 8 at home and 7 at work, doesn't really matter which I use.

    The most irritating thing about 8 was how hidden Shut Down/Restart etc. are, but creating shortcuts for that stuff in Start is a good enough fix.

    I find it funny that people who should be significantly more computer savvy than have to downgrade to 7 out of frustration.

    Perhaps its because I still remember MS-DOS/Win 3.1/ Win95. The minor incomveniences one faces in 8 seem pretty inconsequential in comparison.

    Not so much "frustration" as it is that, if I'm just going to reconfigure my desktop to look and act like 7 anyway, there's no reason for me to go out of my way for 8 when I could just get 7. EDIT: Not to mention the fact that Windows 8 has software aspects which require you to be online in order to activate them (as anti-piracy measures, presumably).
