I see you writting a lot, yet you don't make sense at all. Please stop, we do understand you are some kind of fanboy and you really don't like windows 8, yet you keep speaking in plural as if you represent a mass of people who are as dissapointed and angry at microsoft as you are... might you be a disgruntled microsoft employee? I'm sorry and this is the first time I'll use this kind of language, but you don't need to be a ****ing ******* to express yourself. That being said, back to topic. http://www.techspot.com/review/561-windows8-vs-windows7/ There you can find benchmarks on performance of a machine using W7 and W8, so there might be a small difference but notebook users will surely welcome that small difference (Yes, when you are using a notebook and you need to move you're probably going to need to poweroff and on a couple of times per day, when your notebook is not that great, for it to boot in half a minute makes a whole difference when you need to search for something in particular and then boot off). MY BIG PROBLEM, is how users WITH windows 8 will downgrade to windows 7, that is -like my friend who am replying- a totally biased and "I heard this and heard that about windows 8", or simply those "who changed my desktop! I can't find my computer icon!!" (You know, those who call you every couple of weeks because their internet is "too slow"). What is NOT THE PROBLEM, people happy with windows 7 who won't upgrade to 8 (Again, for those a bit slow that won't read, NOT THE PROBLEM). Someone told something about powerusers loosing time in Windows 8 because you have to make "too many clicks"... powerusers don't use the mouse mate and in that regard, in my experience you can find everything even faster in windows 8. Again, *******s, fanboys and microsoft disgruntled employees refrain from comments, please.
