Agreed. My mom and best friend both have Windows 8... I hate almost EVERYTHING about it... every little aspect with using the OS requires relearning how to find/use just about everything. Vista to 7 was a very easy, SUPER positive change... with just about ZERO learning curve. 7 to 8... over the course of my time trying it out... I don't even know how to view internet connection properties on W8... WTF? This should not be difficult!?!?!? To hell with 8. I hope that 9 is a step back in 7's direction.
