5 moves to do anything that used to take 3. The dumbing down of America, people not smart enough to use a keyboard any more. Why the pretty tiles, you don't have to think anymore.
Wait until you figure out how much less security you truly have on it, you are giving Microsoft (and others) literally every single thing you ever do now with One Drive. Even more, wait until you see the list bug that when you compare two long lists to then swap items from one to the other the two lists keep scrolling back up to the top without you doing anything. It makes long databases almost impossible to modify to drive businesses crazy. Microsoft has claimed it as fixed numerous times yet not once has the fix worked for all. Anything like fast gaming got much slower with 8 as well, the Direct X implementation sucks there. Many also saw support for many peripherals disappear too forcing lots of sales of new devices. Not able to shutdown PC due to forced updates every day drove me crazy. So much stuff running in the background now you can't tell any longer when you are being hacked, Microsoft being in and out almost all day long. I know how to run and maintain my PC, I don't need Microsoft taking it away from me every time I turn around.
Many many businesses have dropped back to other older O/S, they simply cannot work as fast with 8 and higher. 10 has the same issues and more and more forcing you to let Microsoft 'guard' all your files for you to keep the hard drive clean. So they can come in and charge you by the month for maintenance and server space, what they have announced in the past and are super close to now.
I went back to 7, every new issue from Microsoft just gets more and more bloated to soak up any extra performance provided by newer and later chips and mainboards. On 7 mine about 5X as fast as 8. I used to update O/S almost instantly but the reasons for it have pretty much vanished and now there are very solid ones to stay where you are at now.
