Why all the Win 8 hate? Is everyone really that butthurt your start menu was modified?

Put your loaded question back on yourself. It's Windows 7 with a different version number and a tablet interface, why should people get excited about that? They didn't do anything interesting or fresh, it's hard for people to care about something that seems solely designed to withdraw money from their bank account.

Well, everything is designed to do that, no? I think Windows 8 is less about making you empty your bank account for Windows 8 and more about getting the Windows Store to critical mass so that developers acknowledge it.

And you're right, there's little reason to be excited about it. But it gets such venom. There's no chance it's as bad as most people claim it is.
Which doesn't mean it's good, it just means it won't eat your babies.
