Why not just keep Windows 8, it's not that bad really.
There are programs available to re-enable the start button too.
I know this, with Start8 it basically is Windows 7, but then what-s the point might as well do Win7. Anyway I can/t use Win8 for most games it-s incompatible, plus all the programs I use I need Win7 for. All in all, Win8 is not for me, maybe for the casual user it might be fine, but I-m a rigorous PC user and gamer, this is not my thing.
