I can’t understand your complaining. You can remove Metro UI ad have clean Windows.

The Metro (or Modern / Windows 8 ) UI is basically the new ‘Start’ and can be removed using cheap 3rd party software (not totally removed, but at least it won’t appear unless you open it). If you don’t use Metro apps, the ‘Metro UI’ shouldn’t appear at all.

Yes, but removing it by 3rd apps is worth of time, because Win8 is pretty fast. ;) That’s just my point of view. :)

I am really considering getting surface when it supports windows 8 pro, so you can run normal applications.

I have used the Release Preview few months ago. I just think it’s quite different. Not necessarily better or worse than Windows 7 because it is just so different that there are some aspects which are better, and some which are worse than Windows 7.

To me, I still prefer to have the ‘My Computer’ or ‘Explorer’ access which I couldn’t find on the Start screen (I use them quite frequently though). So, I’m still sticking to Windows 7 at the moment as I’m more used to it.

Windows 8 is really fast, even faster than Windows 7 but it also takes time for a person to be adapted to it. We are just too used to the same UI which was introduced 17 years ago.

I agree with you. Yep you are right w8 runs faster on my old low configuration PC which was running w7 before.
