But... I like Windows 8
You know there's a fair few games run about 10fps faster on it, and it's generally faster anyway, especially on an SSD.
I upgraded to it ages ago and think it's good. What don't you like about it? Too pretty and colourful?
Gotta say I've been converted to Windows 8. I've got a custom 3rd party start menu that bypasses the Metro theme and loads straight to the desktop (MS are going to add the start button at some point, after lots of negative feedback about its exclusion).
Everything just works quicker, the system boots in 17 seconds, programs load quicker, barely any load time on games.
