Been using Win8 daily myself on a laptop and dual monitors for 8 months. I'm loving it.

I understand that it's a shock and people don't know what to do with it. It's just a matter of giving it a chance. Once you realize that the "Start Screen" is really just the "Start button" spread out, and adapt your thinking... things get better.

One does wonder why all the user experience studies, if any were done, didn't tell them people would have a hard time adjusting... WTF were they thinking??!!!??

But I agree that it should have been a choice.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams
You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
