Windows 8.1

Due to XP becoming obsolete, I had to upgrade 2 of our home PCs to Win8.1 (that, and LoC wanted to play Bioshock Infinite). Upon installing it, I discovered that it's shit (Windows, not Bioshock).

Is there any thing I can do to make it less shit? Am I just getting old and losing my ability to adapt to stuff the Young People are into these days? At least it's not on my machine, I have Win 7, I like Win7, it doesn't suck too bad.

So do I. Well, naturally, the price is equal to Windows 8, but it's worth it.

How did you get the idea to buy Windows 8 anyway?!

I feared as much. I'll give the article about making it work like win 7 a read, but I think it's just going to have to be awful. I can probably get away with swapping out to 7 on the boys machine, but I think LoC will stay with 8.1 to save the hassle of yet another OS install.

Damn Microsoft Fisher Price interfaces.
