Does anyone LIKE Windows 8?
I have definitely noticed that the people who like it are generally using the computer for very basic tasks, and the people that don't are the people that use a computer for more involved tasks or actual work.
I just use the desktop and have no issues. It is like windows 7 for me.
Sure some of the interface and menu items are different, but you get used to it.
It isn't different enough to warrant an upgrade from 7, but it isn't an abomination.
If you don't like the UI you can change it, that isn't reason to hate 8.
