Windows 8

Hi All !

I'm a total idiot when it comes to computers and just as I was starting to get the hang of "XL," Windows, from what I see so far take a lot of pleasure in 'F-ing' up the world !

With their ridiculous black "charms" left and right of the screen that opens up if my mouse wanders and no 'reduce/bring-down/or eliminate buttons at the top right of all images..., for me; it's a total blunder. And I've only just started exploring !! :?

Am I on my own ?
I don't think so, because if I surf the net, I see that even the young are criticizing the 'modernisation.' I'm of the point of view that when it works..., don't fix it !

Anyway, I stumbled over this...

Has anyone with Windows 8 followed their advice and returned to the old XL system ?

Just asking, as I don't really want a computer failure !

Thanks..., Iain.
