"It boots faster." You keep saying that. Is that really the only advantage you're aware of? Hell, even in this cess pool of comments there are a few more called out.
All I'm saying in tone down your tantrum until you've educated yourself a little or you're going to end up looking as bad as ASeven.
Right...and the reason I keep saying it is because you hear that same mantra repeated over and over and over from the pro Windows 8 crowd. Clearly, it must be the #1 compelling reason for most people upgrading to Windows 8 based upon how many times I see it being written in various places on the internet. I don't hear people saying, "Dude, you gotta upgrade to Windows 8 cuz it's got native ISO support".
Most of the so-called advantages you speak of are simply bullet points that would be good for posting on the back of the box. Most of them are laughable. Faster boot times is one of those laughable bullet points for upgrading. Native ISO support is another laughable so-called advantage. It takes all of 3 minutes to download and install software that can do this.
Windows-to-go anybody? Yeah, can already be done with Windows 7 with your choice of any number of software packages.
Native USB 3.0 support?
We can group this one with native ISO support.
When you make the suggestion that I "educate myself" would I be correct in translating your suggestion into downloading and installing Windows 8 and using it for a trail period until I become accustomed to what it has to offer? Sort of that, "try it, you'll like it" mentality?
And just to be clear, I would have gladly accepted all the little improvements Windows 8 had to offer, had Microsoft not given us desktop users the middle finger. So, now Im gonna give it right back .!.. Thats for you Microsoft! Ballmer is gonna have to pry this keyboard and mouse out of my cold dead hands.
I am fully aware of what Windows 8 is. No thanks. Or as one other person said it so well, "Me no buy."

I'm sorry to inform the general public that vaccines DO NOT bestow upon thee eternal life. If you're around the age of 80 you need to be making your peace with God or the easter bunny. Whichever you believe in.
