A while back I did a full upgrade to Windows 8 on my desktop PC, and while overall my experience with the new OS has been very positive, there are some choices made by Microsoft that hurt the experience for those using "traditional" PCs.
Now this could be a platform to rant about the Start Screen, as I'm sure many of our readers would if they were talking about what sucked in Windows 8 on the desktop, but I'm not going to. I actually don't mind using the Start Screen on the desktop, and after several hours of use I got used to the new way Windows operates without a Start menu. If you still don't like it, either suck it up, downgrade to Windows 7 or use a third-party app to bring it back.
But there are still other things that suck about Windows 8 on a desktop PC, so here they are with no sugar coating.
