I've been using 8 full time for 4-5 months and I'm ok with it. I feel like i'll be vilified for saying that though.

I don't have an issue with people that like it. That's their personal choice.

I have an issue with people trying to convince us to "buy it anyway"... then go "fix it" with classic menu or start8, or some other workaround, and for us to quit whining about the interface that we choose not to accept.

It's not about workarounds available... it's about we shouldn't have to use a workaround in the first place. Hence, no sale.

For me personally, those workarounds don't cut it, either... I'd need a full shell replacement like Windowblinds or Aston... but again, I'm not willing to support MS with my dollars, since they didn't make metro optional in the first place.

I have no issue with your view either - I don't agree with it and as a software developer I'm well aware of that I can't cover everybody's needs and at the same time I need to push my own agenda for future development.

I'm also completely accept 7 is a good OS and good enough for those with it right now. Choice is good. The only real debate in my mind is for those upgrading (the minority) since buying a new PC with 7 makes no sense to me (but that's my view). There's a big difference between the two propositions though.
