Windows 8: I'll Buy It If...

So I have been using the Windows 8 release preview for a month or two now. I must say, I really like it, although the only thing that puts me off is the lack of choice.

It would be nice if Microsoft would implement an option to enable the classic Start Menu that we have grown up with since Windows 95. Instead we are presented with a full screen UI as our only choice.

I have been using 3rd party software, a programme named ViStart has served me well since installing the preview. Although It does lack some functionality, like the ability to right click items within. Also I discovered sometimes while shutting down the PC it would present an error that has to be clicked off, otherwise the PC would not continue to shutdown (annoying to turn up to work to find the pc still on in the morning)

But all in all, I really like this operating system. It seems to run quite efficiently and the start is the only issue I have with this OS. You have done a good job Microsoft, pat yourself on your back (But only after you give us the Start option).

Regardless of the title, I am definitely going to be buying this OS and with a cheap upgrade offer of $40 until January its a bargain buy.
