I prefer a more traditional desktop environment on My Computer. That's right. It's MY COMPUTER, not Microsoft's. I tried both pre release versions of Windows 8 and I was not impressed by the Metro environment on a desktop or laptop computer.
That's why nobody in their right mind wants to fool with linux, 600+ versions & they're all aborted nightmares,compatible with nothing backed by nothing,at least with Win you get constant good support & compatability with practically anything.
