I feel ya... I got my daughter a Win8 laptop - I turned it on and the first thing it wanted was a windows live account logon. Well, k. I tried to set up her account but since she was still 12 (put in the proper birthday in the account info) for one more day, it would not let me. It forced me to create a live account for myself to approve the one I was trying to create for her! But get this - I had to PAY to prove that I was an adult but providing a credit card and a payment of a couple of dollars.

Fucking re dick u lous.

Then I realized that the "panes" were specialized apps that were not just interface ICONS. The Mail pane requires you to setup a windows mail account - not just point it to your default mail provider. Useless, as I refused to setup yet another mail account because google (gmail) does not have a supporting pane.

Fuck Win8... I am staying with Win7.

I have 8 on two computers in my house and use the old one with XP.
Less is most definitely more.

I think so
There may be a work around for that, but I'm honestly not sure.
I'm also completely against that live ID crap. I'll ask around and see if any of the techs at my old job have discovered a way around it.

Unfortunately, it's really hard to get a windows 7 terminal from any major company now. You could always blow out your system and put 7 on it,or do a dual boot and just not use the windows 8 partition, but that would cost you the price of a new os on top of the money you already laid out.
