    Vista with SP1 is exactly as fast as Win7, it just has slightly different look in desktop without Aero. Most people just don't realize this because they're mentally stuck in 2007 and the negative reviews (not personal experience) of it's launch.

    Not gonna even touch the rest of your drivel because GW2 runs as slow in solo play as WoW does in raids. And it's offtopic.

    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    I must admit I'm having a hard time deciding if i should upgrade or not. On 1 hand I really dislike the Metro look (but could probably get used to i guess) on the other it seems it does do things as well as Win7 and in some cases even better.

    So I guess it comes down to the fact whatever I can live with Metro or not, still undecided.

    Does 8 have an option to make it less annoying looking and more like 7?

    To make room for the cupcake!

    Yup, its called Windows 7.
    W8 is built on W7. If you don't like the fluff, don't use W8.

    Gotta admit that I was skeptical and a bit angry with W8, but I've got the Pro version through my university and I've been using it the whole day now and I'm liking it. It's not that much different really.
    The only thing I really think it's lacking is a good intro tutorial after the installation to teach how to reach the simple stuff like shut down, Computer, change some settings, that kind of stuff. I got through that alright, but my mom who was trying it as well, didn't do so well.

    P.S. Finally Win8 Professional x64 is available on Dreamspark for Students and Teachers. I was starting to worry I'd have to pay for it!
