I don't like it, I think it was better when it actually gave you information...

It seems they're trying to make it more user-friendly, but it's impacting those who actually know how to work a PC.

For what it's worth, I'm running the 64-bit executable of UT2004 and the game crashed to desktop within 10 minutes under Windows 8. First time I've ever experienced UT2004 crash. Using compatability mode, however, it's managed a few hours of play without problem. In addition, the horrible stutter I've not been able to solve in windows 7 appears to have gone. Hoping it stays that way!

Other than that, it feels very snappy and I'm liking the boot times. The metro interface seems unnecessary and less intuitive though. Obviously more designed for tablet use. I'd really like my start button back!

The 64 bit patch completely unnecessary, usually resulting in problems.

Most people just don't get it!
What they all call user friendly is beginner friendly. (... or maybe even educating users to noobs)
So the real problem is to making software user friendly for experienced users.
And Big companies like Apple make everything friddly due to removing keyboard commands and forcing the user to use their bad layouted GUIs with a retarded mouse behaviour.
