How am I "on Tony?" I guess there is just some kind of a communication problem here. The problem seems to be that when someone says something to the effect that "I like Windows 8," or in my case "I haven't used it enough to have a strong opinion," many people here interpret that as saying "I think you should be forced to upgrade to Windows 8 immediately!"
The result is that we see these threads where, for example, one guy says that he put Windows 8 on all his family's home computers, and then he gets accused fo being "all religious" about Windows 8, and gets accused of being foolish for putting "beta" software in his "production" environment, etc. I make comments to the effect that it's absurd to think that MS will "force" anyone to upgrade to Windows 8, or that spending 10 minutes with Windows 8 is not enough time to learn enough about it to really say for sure if it is any better or any worse than Windows 7, and I am accused of being an MS fanboy, and I am accused of thinking that anything new and shiny is necessarily better, etc.
And, if I try to clarify my position, by pointing that I never said anyone should upgrade, and that my only objections all along have been to the people who make various claims about being forced to upgrade, or about it being too hard to learn anything new, then I am accused of "being on" someone.
I guess I just have to accept that there is a double standard in this forum, where it is acceptable to attack, insult and criticize people who are open to trying out new software, but people who are open to trying new software dare not say anything negative in response to people who automatically hate new software.
