See, thats the issue. People thinking "its too much change" When its definitely NOT.
People can get a new wife they never know of, and will eventually settle down. They can move house, and can/may eventually settle down. But because its a piece of software, they never give it its intended time, fearing they just might start liking it.
I remember so many people who shifted back to Windows 7 because they did not like WIn8, but only to revert back to Win8 because they felt 'something missing' in Win7.
People did complain at first, but just after ONE week of usage, they settled down with it.

that howeer would not be fair..windows 7 is by far extremely smooth and lovely to look at and use.. the only reason windows 8 may FEEL Smoother is because of aero.. Win 7 aero requires a heavy powerful card to run its appearance and aero interface.. the experience was revolutionary and very smooth.. if not, then just disable aero peek and glass animation and your windows is faster than win 95 on a Xeon workstation..
Win 8 is great.. but Win 7 is not even a notch less.
Personally, i loved Aero to death. Still do, and quite frankly miss it greatly. I still think if Win8 would've got Aero, it would've look ... simply, Elegant & Sexy ... or RAVISHING .
I don't have any PC which lacks horsepower. I myself own a GTX680, with an onboard 3000 series IGP. I don't have any SSD though. But i have seen the performance difference in both 7 & 8 under SSD. And guess what ... Win8 works so much better on a SSD (something to do with cache system or whatever).
Even with Aero OFF ... Windows 7 feels bogged down, now that i have used Win8. So its understandable that the difference in Win8 is not just of looks, but there are many backend differences as well, which includes a new hybrid kernel and more efficient memory utilization.
The whole point of this rant is ... that people are still THINKING and not DOING. They are using puny issues as their weapon to target a perfectly good OS. I am only trying to GET THEM to use Win8.
