I have to agree with this.

Windows 8/8.1 isn't "crappy", Sure it may have some bugs and unfinished things like all OS's and programs would. Have you actually tried Windows 8/8.1 out for yourself, I was one to judge it even before I even tried it out and then I went and brought a copy and now I love it. It has some great features such as the redesigned task manager which is my favorite with detailed hardware usage and how resources such as ram that programs/apps are using. It is more designed for tablets and touchscreen devices but in my opinion its good OS once you get the hang of it.

You can download a skin that will make it look like Windows 7! No Apps page!

Thats cool didnt know that. But still imo its useless unless you have a touch screen and thats why i advise people to downgrade if possible (unless they have a touchscreen)
