    Sure, the new task manager is quite a bit better than before but it's... lacking, to say the least. It's really not that hard to be better than the old Task Manager.

    As for copying: I haven't used Windows Explorer for copying since Windows 98. There are programs that are orders of magnitude more efficient at copying files (actually, they're better at pretty much anything that Windows Explorer is supposed to do).

    There's nothing to love about a piece of software - it's a tool, just like a hammer or a screwdriver. If Microsoft released Microsoft Hammer(tm), it'd have a shiny plastic head and a bent handle. And it'd prevent you from holding a nail at the same time.

    If you do a goggle search - Windows 7 clean install Asus G750JX - it’s the top thread – all the drivers are there.

    Xbc, before you go wiping and reinstalling your entire machine why don't you give a start button program like Start8 a shot first? You can try it for free (time limited but uncrippled) and then decide which way to go. It gives you back pretty much all of the functionality of Windows 7 while retaining the benefits of Windows 8.

    When I first started up my laptop and got the windows 8 screen I was like wow ok this is different, ok where is the ............ ok how do i .......... I have to do what to get ................ but after playing around with it the rage slowly faded to the point I now want to get windows 8 for my desktop now.

    I think the biggest problem with a first impression of windows 8 is they hammer you with a screen full of useless crap bloatware that you look at and say I don't use any of this garbage how do i get to the stuff that I use ? The start page once I removed everything but the desktop button and started putting on useful stuff I found it kinda good. Steam games wouldnt be placed on the start page so the rage started building but then I googled it and found you can easily do it so again the rage faded and its all rainbows and unicorns again

    Not many people like change and most hate it what microsoft needed to do was ease people into the new style not overwhelm them with all the stupid icons that nobody uses. Took me a day of playing with it to accept the new layout and once you figure out how to customize the start page with stuff you want and use it really started being good

    You can try Classic Shell, it's free. And you can boot straight to the desktop. I haven't "seen" metro since I installed it.

    Classic Shell and 8GadgetPack works for me.

    With Classic Shell I can disable Charms and go directly into the Desktop at boot/login. 8GadgetPack gets back the gadgets I like to have up, with/without a Sidebar underlay.
