Better stick to your XP or XP Pro or Windows 7 Pro or Windows 7 Ultimate.
They tried too hard to design Windows 8 for mobile phone / small tablet users and forgot about (or want to force-fit) those using notebooks and desktop PCs. Not a clever interface. Not intuitive at all. Many things are hidden and you have to remember steps to re-find where they are.
This is a gift to Apple. They could not have wished for anything better.
No idea why Microsoft is doing this to themselves. Maybe they insulted the intelligence of their average OS users.
I still like XP Pro.
