    :P

    Pahani - Go 8.1 + Start8 and you'll never see Metro again. I find it much faster than Win 7 personally and enjoy the little things like being able to pause a large file copy.

    I love windows 8.1. The metro screen has to be customized to fit what your interests are, but it's great to have two desktops that I can switch between for either a purely casual tablet-like experience, or switch back over to the more traditional style to get work done. Maybe I'm in the small minority, but I'm considering trading in my android phone for a Windows phone

    I absolutely hated windows 8 with passion when I first installed it, but I love a challenge, so I swore a solemn oath to beat it into submission. In the process, I'm not sure who beat who into submission, but it's fast, efficient and, like 7 and XP, never gives me much too much trouble. I still hate the metro screen, but I rarely see that anymore. I guess I could say we've come to an understanding and she mostly does what I tell her to do without *****ing about it. Occasionally she'll balk and want to be finessed...I'll give in and dance with her a bit and she'll fall in line...Oh, right...We're talking about an OS...I got a little carried away for a second.

    Seriously, 8.1-Update 1 Pro is not that bad once you get the hang of it. I'm actually looking forward to windows 9 because it's expected to take full advantage of the NVMe developments coming down the pike; something none of the current windows nor any of the other current operating systems do.

    Yea NVMe is an essential development in storage; as TRIM was in Win 7 SP1 (iirc).
