    far as i know you can use Systemd to log in?

    Wasn't forced.
    Wasn't manipulated.
    I can downgrade to Windows 7 if I wanted, but I won't.
    I like it.

    I also use Linux on Phoronix as well. I triple boot Windows 8, Xubuntu 13.04 and Linux Mint 15 Mate.

    I got my start screen all organized and I do use it (since my thumb is literally right on the Windows key most of the time). I don't use those start menu programs and from what I've read they cause a lot of problems.

    Yes they do, but most of my drivers I use have had a Windows 8 specific driver for awhile now. Realtek, NVIDIA, Microsoft mouse and AMD chipset drivers. The only thing that doesn't have Windows 8 drivers is my LifeChat LX3000, but the drivers that automatically install work flawlessly.

    If drivers work I'm almost thinking of upgrading but they removed Aero. Why the hell did they remove my transparent windows? Bring back the start menu and give me Aero Glass back and I'm going to upgrade! Microsoft are you listening??
    Hahaha!! Microsoft is not listening, it has no ears anymore because it is rotting!!
    I love Windows 8! Reminds me the good old days of Windows Millennium!
    Can you imagine windows 8 running under Mir? You could then run the Great Aero via Weston through Mir and have your transparent windows back in the outer space!!!
    Think about it...
    Maybe you should start coding to port Mir (Canonical behind it more market share) or Wayland (even with few lines you could be the maintainer of the projekt so easily) to Windows 8!
