    For anyone that doesn't know. In Windows 8, to shut down you have to go to the charms bar, settings then the power button to shut down.

    Now with Windows 8.1, you just right click on the "new" start button and hit shutdown.

    That isn't an issue. Anything I search for always comes up. The improved search I mention is the way it organizes the search results and the fact that it searches the internet too.

    That is all.

    I'd like to point out that I never said anything negative towards 8. I just said that it does not work well with my (and many others') working style, at least on my non-touch desktop. No amount of adjustment made it equal to or better than the start menu for me.

    Criticism is not hate. They are not interchangeable. Criticism is how you get companies to improve products.

    Now, I agree, people running around exclaiming "Win8 is shit" is unacceptable. It's not as if it's a slow, unstable, unusable OS. It's a solid OS, but it does leave a bit to be desired for many of us.

    Quite simply, Win8 would be much improved for many, many people, if they allowed us to choose between the start screen and the start menu. I don't really think that's an unreasonable request.
    Kursah, hellrazor, remixedcat and 2 others say thanks.
