    I hear you. There are many who don't like the interface. I personally like it, but thought that it was best used and made for touch screen. Sure you can learn mouse tricks and keys to do it on a keyboard. And once you learn them you can cruise around pretty good. But let's face it, not many want to do that. I do think that you can boot to desktop and make the experience pretty close to 7 is a nice compromise. And you can play with the tiles if you choose to, or just stay away from it.
    I'm personally waiting to see what Update 1 brings. I like the idea of being able to pin apps to the status bar. I think what most people dislike about the W8 experience is the jarring between what feels like two different OSs or interfaces. They needed to do one of two things. Either bring metro interface into the desktop in a better way or make metro the main interface and no desktop needed. Still have access to desktop when necessary but make it not necessary. There are ways they could have accomplished either direction.

    But I don't get that argument ..... I never did use a touch device before 8 and even after... until I got my iPod I used touch .I didn't like 8 but after I used it, it was better and made sense. I think its people hate to learn something new :/
    Again, the 'file manager' will just be a better OneDrive integration. I hope people are thinking differently because they'll be sorely disappointed.

    I hope my... It is not that I dislike Windows 8, I just prefer Windows 7 any time.

    But I hope this isn't based on my incapability to learn new stuff ;-)

    Very true. It's a learning experience. No matter how much testing and focus groups, you don't know what you have until it hits the public. Update 1 will be an indication of how much they have listened and learned.

    I don't think anyone is buying that our resident scientist is incapable of learning!

    I think there's a lot more programming that needs to be done. But we'll see. :)

    nonon i wasn't saying you cant learn ...im just saying I don't get that argument that its made for touch when in reality its just a thing people labeled win 8 as a touch first os

    Probably. But then no matter what they do with Update 1, there will be complaints that it's not enough or they missed something. It's foolish to think that everything will be solved on the first pass.
