I just bought a new Dell XPS NON touchscreen laptop. It came with Windows 8. I took 8 instead of 7 because 7 "not available" on this machine. First impressions: HORRIBLE, CONFUSING & FRUSTRATING. I immediately bought a new front end that somewhat mimics win 7. I'm living with it now, BUT, I just received an install key for Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit that I am authorized to install. I was, and am 100% satisfied with Win 7 Ultimate. I see no reason why I should go back to Win7. Am I alone in this point of view? Can anyone give me a good SOLID & UNDERSTANDABLE reason why I should keep win8 home??
