Or maybe it's not a tablet OS and you're just making yourself look like a fool?

Keep parroting that garbage, makes it easy for people to know to ignore your opinion.

It's absolutely designed for touch screen, that much is inarguable, and it's not a far step to see that Microsoft attempted to keep the design language that originated on Windows Phone over to desktop computers. Even on the desktop, even with Classic Shell installed, whenever I plug in my phone, I still see 'Tap to choose what happens with this device' in the top right corner. Tap, not click.

I went from Vista to 8 and love 8 so far. My only complaint is not being able to figure out how to get Skype on Desktop instead of the app. Not gonna lie though I've been working too much to figure it out on my own >_>

I use Windows 8.1 every day at work and it works just fine. I actually like it a lot more than 7, which I still have on my home PC only because I don't feel like installing windows until I do my motherboard upgrade next year.

Vista was way worse IMO. Win 8 was horrid for awhile but they do seem to be fixing a lot of the issues. though IE is still a mess.

Toward the middle of the page under the "or choose another version" header, click "Learn about Skype for Windows desktop" under the "Windows desktop" section.

use IE on the desktop not the app in metro.



And, TC I know what you are saying. I had the similar feelings about windows 8 when I first got it but once you figure out that you don't have to live in the metro you'll be fine.
