I have a friend who called Dell to buy a new desktop.

The Dell sales-sleaze didn't bother to tell him that 8, that it came with, is 1. designed for touch screen use - not mouse and keyboard, and 2. that so many people despise 8, and 3. that the productivity level for people needing multiple open windows at once was pretty much zero. He ended up having to buy an expensive touch screen that he didn't really want.

IF, and ONLY IF, MS doesn't live up to its threat to block out things like Classic Shell, I'll eventually put 8 Pro on one PC but with CS or the like.
