Windows 8 totally sucks.

1. No start menu.

2. Ugly apps in your face.

3. More clicks to do the same job - backwards.

5. They want your email address.

6. No freedom to choose like win98 or xp classic.

7. Anti business machine. Makes your company lose money retraining people.

Windows 8 sucks worse than ME and is 1000 times worse than Vista. Over 90% of businesses have already decided to skip windows 8. They won't even use it for free. It really does suck big time.

Its totally gay and sucks.

Windows 8 is the most disgusting operating system for a desktop computer I have seen. I would not use it if they gave it away for free. I don't just dislike it, I hate it! I never actually hated an operating system from Microsoft before this. The main reason is that I have no choice. I want a desktop operating system for my desktop. Windows 8 looks OK for a touch device, but since I have no choice in my desktop OS I will not buy any Windows 8 device and I will advise all I know not to get Windows 8 devices. Screw you Microsoft for trying to jam this abomination of an OS down everyone’s throat.
