I don't know what possessed me to buy the blasted thing. I've only had it for 3 hours, but I can vehemently proclaim that Windows 8 sucks.
It takes my 20 years of Windows knowledge and flushes it down the toilet. For fucks sake, I had to use Google to figure out how to Restart my damn PC because I just couldn't figure out how to do it on my own! It's absolutely insane.
Then I keep getting stuck in these Start Screen/Windows Store loops where I can't figure out how to exit back to the Desktop because there's NO BUTTON ANYWHERE TO DO THAT! And of course my first instinct was to press the Windows key but that just keeps flipping between the two. Then I tried ESC and that didn't do shit. CtrlAltDel? Nope.
Windows 8 sucks. I hate it. Not because it's different. I don't mind different as long as it improves on the original. But that's exactly it, all the new improvements and features are not a step forward. They're a step back! I'm sure Win8 is wonderful on a Tablet, but as a desktop, it's the single most frustrating OS I've ever used.
Don't buy it.
