I think after about 6 months of daily use, I finally fully appreciated Windows 8(.1 in my case), and I believe it is perfect for a touchscreen convertible laptop like mine. It probably took me a week to get used to it.

I download something called Classic Shell on every windows 8/8.1 I install. It gives you a true start button but also gives you the option to use metro. It also puts the windows 7 UI features into 8/8.1 to make it a more complete package.

Im not marketing here I love using windows 8.1 now and thats just my experience.

I also have 11 years of IT so I know a good OS when I see one.

If you mean what programs launch on startup, it is now located in taskmanager under "Startup" tab.

W8 is not my favorite OS... I'm looking forward to 10. For me it looks too childish and much too colorful

I don't know the exact amount of time, probably about a week. I was quite impressed about the new Windows 8.1 . Apart from the gadgets, startmenu and icons I think performance is pretty fast compared to Win7.
