I don't care much for Apple/Macs, but their OSs are evolutionary - it is beyond my understanding why Microsoft expects users to learn a whole new way of using their computers, to do essentially the same things they did before in a way they knew and understood.
I teach oldies basic computer skills and they finally have a good grasp of Win7 - I also lecture college students in IT skills and I simply cannot understand why the same things have to be hidden in new places and often accessed in far more complex ways. Think shut down, think change desktop, think . . . (where the hell is Media Player? oh, that'll cost you.) There is no way I will recommend any one to upgrade to Win 8 - there is no point to battle with it on a desktop PC
