I hate it even more now that I've had time to actually mess around with it. There's nothing I like about it and the metro thing is the most annoying thing I've ever messed with. I'm formatting this hdd in a few minutes and installing win7 once my ISO is done downloading for me to make a bootdisk with. I thought I would give win8 a fair shot since it came pre-installed on my new Laptop but I just can't do it.

Try Windows 8.1. It's free to test.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Just install ClassicShell. Ignore the Metro interface completely afterwards.

I'm scared of change. Why can't everything stay the same forever?

If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

But it isn't even Halloween yet.

Or from a past Halloween. Or maybe you transcend time and space
