Just bought a new laptop to replace my old one that has XP installed. I feel like I have made a BIG, no HUGE, mistake in buying Windows 8.
I have spent a bit of time slowly learning what 'features' I am having to disable to make it BEARABLE for me to use an operating system designed for small touch screens on a non-touch screen laptop. I am nowhere near happy yet and I think it will take months to get used to the new operating system - that is assuming I ever do.
Yes, I know what the 'answer' will be. Suck it up, waste my time learning to live with it etc. etc.
I am seriously considering going back to the retailer and asking if I can return the laptop and exchange it for one with Windows 7 on it.
