Re: I give Up
Amen... I too have recently started feeling the same way you have... I have not moved to Win8 because of the install wanting to connect to my online identity on start and for me I believe that isn't right. and the first few times I installed Win8 I took me a bit to figure out that the user didn't have to attach the login to an online account.. Why make that option an obscure one? I believe now that its no longer in Beta that is a little more straight forward... but still.....
I'm sticking to Win7 and am testing Linux based OS's and testing some of my windows applications (games) in that environment. Looking forward to the day I no longer need a MS product.
