I don't have a huge problem with the Win 8interface except the garish colors and lack of customizability I'm used to having with XP. Win8 is three times slower and has stupid replacements for the same movements in the interface, versus XP. But even all that wouldn't matter as much as the lack of DOS compatibility.
Just preserve my ability to use DOS windows as in XP, and fix the stupid stuff remaining in XP (puleese, you can't format and save files to DVD like you can to a floppy or pen drive?), and allow me to keep the user interface as I customized it in XP (with Win98-style toolbars and clean screen, per MY specs not MS) -- and I'd move to Win8 in a heartbeat.
Granted, there are workarounds offered by third-party vendors to accomplish the 'restoration' of these features. But each 'update' to the OS will bring crashes. That's the past, and the future. I'm sick of that future, having to spend 72 hours a week of my spare time for 12 years ON those glitches. Basta.
