How have i acted like that? I haven't at any point said that the system is improved.

That isn't what I am referring to. It is your attitude toward everyone that doesn't like the current format of Win8. You are acting as if we are all a bunch of dumb****s for not seeing the benefit of the new OS. The majority of windows users do not like it.

Now, if you have a tablet or a touchscreen monitor then that changes things but as a desktop application Win8 ****ing sucks in its current layout. When 8.2 comes out you won't hear as much bitching because it will finally be standard desktop friendly again.

I have said NOTHING of the kind. All my posts have been about the start button only. I haven't said ANYTHING about the OS as a whole. But, w/e, agree to disagree.

That's the problem I have with the Windows 8 fanboys like -King-. They try to act like they are superior to anyone who dares to criticize Windows 8, and they bend over backwards trying to "prove" how easy it is use the OS. They act like anyone who complains about Windows 8 is just an idiot who is ignorant of the magnificent elegance that is Windows 8.

I can navigate my way around Windows 8 just fine. In fact, I can navigate my way around just fine in all versions of Windows, IOS 6, IOS 7, Red Hat Linux, Linux Mint, Suse Linux, Ubuntu Linux, and several versions of Android, as well as the old MS-DOS systems and even the old Apple II and Atari 800 computers of the 1980s. I can also navigate my way around just fine with every major implementation of UNIX, including Sun Solaris, HP-UX, IBM's AIX system, and the UNIX System V systems sold by NCR.

I am not a n00b when it comes to computer operating systems. I've spent spent over 35 years installing and maintaining computer operating systems. I originally cut my teeth on IBM's mainframe MVS operating system. Hell, even the TSO/ISPF interface of MVS makes more sense than Windows 8.

Windows 8 had the highest learning curve of any GUI I've ever seen. That is absolutely LUDICROUS when you consider the fact that Windows 8 is simply an upgrade to the Windows OS that is literally used by over a billion people. It's like the developers at Microsoft went out of their way to make it counter-intuitive. It's the first time I've ever had to have a laptop sitting next to a new computer so that I could use Google over and over to figure out how to perform simple tasks that are intuitively obvious on most other GUIs.

I got over the learning curve for Windows 8 a long time ago, and I get along just fine with Windows 8. But that doesn't mean I'm not entitled to point out and bitch about its shortcomings.

hyperbolic.

Plenty of fair criticism for Instituting a touch friendly- if not almost necessary ui version when the predominant userbase is still very much entrenched in the normal keyboard and mouse setup. 8.2 is expected to reimplement the standard Start button- so it's not the end of the world, and there's plenty of +s to the new OS otherwise.

I'm not a Microsoft fanboi, and didn't care for them ditching the Start button- but I do like the type feature to pull up what I'm looking for.

Ultimately, it's coming back, and this is much ado about nothing.

Again, that's a Windows Vista feature.

you do have a windows key on the keyboard. And yes, the search was in 7 and Vista. Really, Metro is just a big blown up start menu, that you can run apps on.

How the **** am I a fanboy? I've discussed ONE small aspect of the OS, missing the start button. I haven't commented on any other aspect much less the OS as a whole.

I like it on touchscreens.

I also am growing more curious about the Microsoft Midori project.
