What makes Windows 8 better than earlier versions?

The new layout is so much different...more like something on an iPad, except it's annoying cuz you can't maneuver/scroll with a simple swipe of your finger. Plus, the new Start menu is weird. I can never find what I'm looking for that way. I always have to go to "Search" and type in what I want. Which is fine when I know the name of the program, but that's not always the case. Part of me says, "give it a chance and you might like it better", but the other part of me says, "Windows 8 sucks".

    Yeah, it's a new computer, not an upgrade, so there's no going back to 7, unless I buy it. The change is still a little frustrating, but I'm getting used to it a little. I mostly skip that whole interface and just use the familiar "desktop" option.
