Re: You can make W8 look more or less like W7

Several people have mentioned that with Start8, Classic Shell etc you can make W8 look like W7. Quite right.

Balance the marginally better performance of W8 against the few things missing from W8, then on balance W8 (with the start menu restored) is then only a bit worse than W7.

Enough said?

Well - everybody's free to have their opinions.

What you can't take away, is that my Win8 has been running for almost a year with no blue screens, no sudden restarts and no programs frozen the computer to  death.

Not even WindowsXP was that reliable.

And extra: Some of my external devices (a printer and a scanner) who were left without drivers by Vista, are suddenly working.

I will never change back to XP.
