There is some Freeware out there that is relatively safe once you get past the installation part. Anyone who downloads these programs and does not use the custom install is probably going to end up with all kinds of crap on their computer that is mostly useless, rich in tracking cookies, and difficult to get rid of.

I doubt very much that you are telling the whole truth..... You are probably a high-end IT professional 70-year-old who works for M$. My 70-year-old low-level end user customers want to throw their Win 8 machines out the window!

If useless, backwards change for the sake of profit is the future, Win 8 is truly its flagship.
...And we're all doomed.

Obviously Erez either did not do his research, or did not care about privacy!

They are concentrating in looking at the tree and not lookin at the whole forrest. Let me explain, the start is the whole screen. The shut down in now to the right instead of the left. The search, is where the Start screen is. Just start typing what you want to find in your PC and voila, there it is. What is so difficult about that?

Because Windows for years has had a basic layout with a start button that not only are people used to, was very easy to use. It also allowed good multitasking with multiple open windows across a screen, and is generally quite productive. Windoze 8 MUTRO is more aimed at toddlers, chimps, pets, etc. who like looking at pretty pictures and hitting them with their hands or paws, not actually use a computer for business or other purposes.
I wouldn't care so much if MS had allowed me the choice of using the existing Win 7 GUI. However, even though there are workarounds to make 8 usable, MS (at least in one communication I received last summer) made it clear that they don't want the Win 7 GUI back, and would eventually block all attempts like this to restore it.
