I don't mind Windows 8 from using it for the last month, since I had to learn support for it at work. But you know what? It's usable because I can just skip all the shit that makes it Windows 8 and use it exactly like Windows 7, without ever touching the new "desktop"... I never take it out of desktop mode in normal use. So why use 8 instead of 7? I can't honestly think of a good reason.

That is fair, but then it also doesn't mean Win 8 sucks, as some go straight to. To me it means there are two very close O/S's out there, one is slightly updated, but then again several apps we use get updates and that usually is a good thing. As you say, if you hate metro or don't need it (ME!), you can hide it and never see it and then it's a slightly updated Win7. Would I pay $40 or $100 for it? No. I rec'd a laptop with it on already, don't see no reason to move it to 7. System runs exteremely similar to Win 7, in the Control Panel there is a program that still uses the name Win7, doh!
