There's a lot that's gone. Windows 7 at times bent over backwards to accomodate old apps. 8 barely apologizes.
Also, at first there were easy ways to get the old start button back. MSFT went and fixed that and one has to wonder why.
It's like "we know what's good for you" has hit new highs at MSFT. Don't even get me started about WIN 8 RT.
I guess my title pretty much explains it... I'm thinking about upgrading but I'm still curious... Thanks
