A lot of people like it, including me. I usually leave it on the desktop and rarely see the new Windows 8 interface, but it is indeed a fast and surprisingly problem free OS, for me. This is just elitist tech geeks trying their best to give it a bad name.

You're using Windows 7 with an annoying tablet interface bolted onto it that you manage to ignore and very minor under the hood changes. Stop trying to deceive yourself that you're somehow blazing a new path that "tech elitist geeks" somehow don't understand. Of course it's problem free, its based almost entirely on Windows 7 which has years of stability testing. This is not an accomplishment! It has nothing to do with "hating", it's an operating system, not a band. Instead of people being elitist tech geeks maybe others just have really low standards.

just as 7 was built on a foundation of vista before, and xp was the evolution of win2k, itself the evolution of NT.. these are weird arguments and deliberately attempt to marginalize what are nothing but positive additions present in windows 8.

storage spaces, tickless kernel, rewritten memory heap, security obviously a priority in just looking at memory management alone - all this for 40 dollars, and somehow the ones with the blinders off are the people who obstinately refuse to consider an upgrade, because...?
