Windows 8… I tried to like it, again.

So I braved Windows 8 again, I told myself that maybe things will be different this time around with the likes of WindowBlinds and ModernMix from Stardock being available.  Well, I did that.  I installed Windows 8 along with Start8, WindowBlinds, and ModernMix.  I tried to like it again, I really did.  Yes, I’ll admit that things were better this time around but still things didn’t work right.

I had shortcuts that didn’t have icons and I couldn’t for the life of me find a fix for it.  I’ve never had this problem with Windows 7.  Even with ModernMix it was a fight to stay in desktop mode.  Listen up Microsoft… I am a desktop users!  A DESKTOP USER!  Quit foisting that ModernUI garbage on me, I am a desktop user!  Not a tablet user!

Needless to say, I’m back on Windows 7.  Long live Windows 7!
