Cumbersome and difficult? Its the same as Windows 7 with the added "Metro UI". I upgraded to Windows 8 a couple days ago. I got it set up to nearly match my Windows 7 desktop. Everything i did on Windows 7, im now doing on Windows 8. I even checked out the Metro UI and Windows Store, and downloaded a couple metro apps.

Making W8 desktop function the same as W7 may be considered difficult to some, since you have to download and install a few programs from the internet. Im 90% set on buying a Windows 8 tablet, and leaving my laptop to collect dust (as long as Microsoft doesnt disable me from booting to Desktop or disable me from using a third-party start menu. And if the Bluestacks gets the Android apps functioning properly, using Bluestacks on Windows 8 tablet should be a blast. From what i understand, i should be able to use an Xbox controller to play W8 metro games. That will be a blast.
