As I stated above, Windows 8.x will catch on with enthusiasts when SATA Express arrives, as long as they don't add support for it to Windows 7. Since Microsoft says it's not going back to the Start button, we may as well get used to using programs like Classic Shell, like we got used to all the other 3rd party replacements. Embrace the new OS for all it's benefits, and work around the bullshit, as usual.
