There are a number of minor upgrades in Windows 8 that are nice, but the entire "Metro" interface is completely useless.

My recommendation is Windows 8 + Start8 to get rid of the obnoxious shit.

Worst thing about windows 8 is that its almost impossible to get into safe mode if you can't get to the start menu. The FBI virus was out well before windows 8, so they should have forseen a method to boot into safe mode when turning on your computer. Its supposed to work when you hit shift + f8. Problem is that it gets to the log in screen so quickly that you don't have the time to get there.

In many cases, that's much easier said than done. You can't simply insert a disc and install 7. Most new laptops shipping with 8 have the new UEFI partition system. Which Windows 7 can't be installed on. You have to do some DOS command line work to erase and repartition the drive just to install Win7. Which most people wouldn't be capable of. And that also borks your recovery partition as well. So it's a one-way conversion and you can't easily go back to Win8.

Again, I'll throw my vote in for sticking with Windows 8 but using Start8 to ditch all the obnoxious stuff. It works great.

Some models are more difficult than others. Supposedly HP is especially difficult, as they are putting in additional measures to prevent downgrading.

Yeah, Start8 is a great solution, and that's what I'd recommend people try first. The sad part of the whole affair is that Win8 is really solid minus the metro interface. Start8 does as good of a job as any.
