Probably depends on how you used Win7. The feature I liked most about Win7 was the ability to pin programs to the Taskbar and Start Menu.

Having to open the Win8 Start Screen (fullscreen) every time I launched an app (that immediately sent me back to the desktop) never started to feel smooth. This jumping back and forth between styles just started to feel increasingly frustrating and using the argument that you barely have to use the Start Screen and still able to use to OS isn't a good defense imo.

I'd love to get many of the improvements Win8 brings but the amount of effort and frustration I would have to put up to get used to the interface simply isn't worth it (even if I have to waste the available 15€ upgrade option)

You can still pin items to the taskbar, you know this right?

...so the thing to do, is to PIN all the programs and apps or whatever from the crappy Start Screen (which is functionally useless) to your desktop and task bar?
