So it sounds like everyone's argument for why Win 8.x is great is because you can ignore all the crappy 8.x features and treat it like Win 7. It's like saying spinach is great because you don't have to eat it.

If you ever do want to use an app built for Win 8.x, you better have a lot of spare time. Since solitaire is basically a time killer anyway, I guess it shouldn't matter that it take 10 tries and 30 minutes just to open the app.

And they should have named it Window, because you can't have more than one. If you toggle away from a Win 8 app and try to go back, that app will crash.

I'm just hoping Win 10 is to Win 8 as Win 7 was to Vista.
