I installed Windows 8 yesterday (looks nice on a 30" TFT) and I really don't see the problem. I mean, you invoke the Start Screen by clicking your mouse in the lower left corner, right where the Start button used to be. So nothing has really changed there. You can still put shortcut icons on the desktop. You can still use RocketDock, CircleDock, various Start Menu plug-ins or any of the thousands of other mods that are out there for Windows. I mean, it's Windows. And we are geeks. If you can't find a satisfactory way to get Windows 8 to behave exactly as you want, who are you and what are you doing on these forums, stranger?

You mean make it look like windows 7? The alternative is to just use windows 7 which works fine unless you need the touch screen stuff.

That is also an excellent alternative. :) Second-hand computer shops should be stacking up with cheap Windows 7 licences soon as people hop on the Windows 8 train. Everybody happy.
