I (deliberately) bought my current computer before Win8 came out, because I was sure it was going to be a trainwreck and I didn't want anything to do with it.
And I was right, and I'm glad I did.
My phone came out two and a half years ago, but we were brought up to the edge (Android 4.4.2) last Fall. I suspect we won't get any more updates for my model -- and again, I think I'm glad.
Google has gone nuts with the next version of Android. And I'm glad I won't be a part of it.
Thanks, but no thanks!
Because, to be honest, I've had zero problems with W8 at all. It took me about 10 minutes to adjust to the ways it's different from W7.
But there's no start button.
As I said, it took me about 10 minutes to adjust.

I don't get out much any more, and I haven't had any opportunity to see Win8 in person. So no, it's based on what I've read.

Stock Windows 8 is pretty bad, though.

People, laptops and desktop computers Are Not Phones. Stop trying to make them look like phones!
And don't get me started on Google's home page...

The only other thing I didn't like was the cryptic error 850 message you get when you first set up a VPN connection in Win 8. It only takes a quick change in the adapter settings to fix, but in these days where Windows wants to hide every system option from the user for their own good, they should make a two step guide in help so you don't have to google how to fix it.
Isn't Microsoft planning to bring back the Start button in Win 10?

If MS delivers on the promise that Win10 will 1) work on everything that runs Vista/7/8, 2) be a free upgrade for a year to get everyone onto the same platform, and 3) have a fully-functional desktop/laptop UI, they'll be able to recover from this mess.

Of course, if you remove an imported card, your apps and data disappear with it, but I've never removed the SD card from my phone
