Although I have tested windows 8 on a few development boxes and I see the OS is solid and boots much faster than windows 7, when the trial period ends I will not be upgrading any system until there is a way to fully turn Aero back on. I really hate the square windows no transparency look of the years past that has been implemented. I also do not like the split personality between the ModernUI and the desktop UI. Although as a desktop user I do not see any use of the ModernUI on a high end system with a large monitor. I do certainly not want my applications to use the entire display so I would prefer a way to totally disable the ModernUI and just go with the windows 7 desktop experience instead of the windows 2000 experience + ModernUI.
