I feel as though it is just windows 7 with a new user interface and updated support for touch and other more recent developments. I think that new start screen is annoying if ur not on ur phone or tablet, I know it has a more standard desktop option but I think I'll stick with windows 7

You know Windows 8 is much more secure then Windows 7. You can restore the look and feel of Windows 7 using know third party applications. The reason for the new Start screen is so that you have a common experience across all your Windows 8 computers, tablets, phones and xbox. Also with the new start screen you are ck away from your desktop using the desktop app or any other installed program that is installed as a desktop app.

I figured it was more secure, thats one of the first things microsoft does when it creates a new operating system: it fixes the problems with the previous version. I have no need for the synchronization between devices that the start screen offers, and I shouldn't have to go to a third-party to make my computer look the way a prior version of the same software looked. Just opinions tho, I'm sure I'll jump on the bandwagon later on. The touch screen functionality is really tempting, and I really want to try Civilization 5's new touch-screen interface for Windows 8

Best solution

Lots of people agree with you and some don't. Much of computing is subjective you may not like how something I think is brilliant works.

Its no upgrade that for sure but as an OS in its own right its ok if you can live with the UI
Personally I couldn't agree more about your sentiments regarding having to change it to make it usable.

Each to their own though I guess.

ive come to agree, i think it is meant for mobile, and other situations where you can leave something running with a bunch of tiles for actively running applications in a big tablet (almost table top environment), and for tablets and such, but i dont think it is designed well for desktops, i think microsoft focused too much on mobile that their software runs well on neither

Windows 8 has bugs that have not been resolved and some games have compatibility issues with it. I found out the hard way that Windows 8 is not worth the upgrade from Windows 7. I ended up rolling back to Windows 7.
