Learning curve: We all had to learn Win95, then 98, Mil, XP and 7 followed with same format. To run 8 you have to reinvest for the new age. If you don't like 8 you won't like 9,10, etc. either. Invest in the new OS (eventually) or move to Chrome, Apple, Linux, etc. It is pretty clear. Regardless, it is time to reinvest. Win8 is a new OS and Linux would be a new OS also that you would have to invest time in to learn it. Hope that you can understand and appreciate my point.
