you don't get banned without good reason, I suspect it was because you keep repeating the same thing with very little understanding what it is you are talking about.
I personally was skeptical of windows 8 Metro when it came out, but after putting the effort in to using it and providing constructive feedback to MS over the issues ive identified I am now happy to say I really like it. There is a lot of FUD out there to do with Win 8 an from what I can tell you are just regurgitating that same FUD without actually using it.
I strongly suggest you read back through these comments over the last few pages and if you are up for the challenge try windows 8 WITH metro for a longer period of time WITHOUT your preconceived opinions of it being crap.
I can promise you this, if you keep saying things like Win 8 Nightmare preview you will gain no respect and MS will not listen, if you use the OS, feedback your CONSTRUCTIVE comments to them once you have got a handle of how it works MS is much more likely to listen, why? because if you do this I can also promise you that you will not be alone in those opinions. But you cant be blinkered to the Metro / Start menu issue, you have to think like a tester be open minded and ask for support (and we will give it here) because that is what YOU asked to be remember. If you cant do those things, if you cant be willing to learn the OS in its current form then there is no point you trying it.
And yes, using your name as a login detail is rather daft, I could if I could be bothered tie you to all sorts of things including your location, it took a whole 30 seconds to find your previous posts in other forums and your various FB details / page.
If you want the help then put in the effort, if not (and from what ive read I don't think you will change) don't use it and more importantly don't spread yet more FUD about it based on your inaccurate opinions.

I'm sorry but you guys must be new here, online petitions rarely/never work. Not to mention it's Microsoft, the only people they care about are themselves and the OEM's.
Not so my friend, that is the reason for the public beta, because many people will use it for what it is intended for, testing. There's more feedback links in this OS than on any other CP ive used, if there is a consistent trend in that feedback MS will be much more willing to listen IF people use the feedback option constructively. But yes the petition is completely useless

ha! your right, But its hard to call them the same OS given that Android has embraced (in my opinion) changes that Linux desktop should have done years ago
