Unfortunately for me I was forced somewhat to go to 8.1 but I'll most likely be glad when the next release comes out, if history is anything to go by.

Liked.
Yup, I end up installing classic shell on about 90% of my callout tech support win8 machines. People understand that one-screen interface, with the non-hidden functionality, better than the multi-screen/instance interface where ALL of the functionality is hidden.
Who would've thought?
What a fucking topsy-turvy crazy-ass world this is.

You and everyone else might be confusing Aero with WDDM.

Pretty sure that's the case.
I guess that like the little hand sharing icon, transparency was "cognitively overloading" and got scrapped.

Well looks like that picture of all the windows versions with the troll face on every second release was true.

yes very hard to read,
made a thread about it in site discussion.

Unsure of my feelings towards windows 9.

I've probably only used 7 for half as long as I used windows xp.

Everyone knows Microsoft do this on purpose to make people feel better about upgrading. You need a turd like Vista to make people feel justified in jumping to Win7.

Plus, it's awesome to be as big as Microsoft and sucker people in to paying for beta software under the guise of a full release.

That's why I wait 18 months before considering it.
