So I bought a brand new SSD and decided I would put Windows 8 on it. I bought Windows 8, but put the Windows 8.1 beta thing on instead ( I will do the full install again later ). You want my honest opinion? There is almost no point to upgrade if you have Windows 7. The first thing I do is hit the "desktop" button and pretend it is Windows 7. Sometimes I use the Metro interface if I need to. Otherwise it is Windows 7 with a forced crappy UI. It supposedly boots up faster, but with an i7 and an SSD we are talking about a few seconds difference, generally it loads before my TV can even turn on. It is just Windows 7 with a clunkier interface, but if you're a gamer you need to switch, because I've heard a few games and the newest DirectX are Windows 8 only. It isn't that bad, but it feels like a sidegrade. They basically replaced the Start menu with a crappier UI.

People don't like the interface of the new Start menu. The new Start menu in which, in practice, you spend about none of your time. For just about everything else, it's like Windows 7.

Change is scary. I'm not saying it's not possible to dislike the new start menu but people have blown it so far out of proportion that it's ridiculous.

Well it just seems like Microsoft is going in a not to good direction, vista had alot of issues but, because of that windows 7 is amazing. so hopefully it will be the same scenario with 8 and 9
