Is the the Start Screen?
Its definitely a dramatic change, and its understandable to be mad because Microsoft is forcing it onto you, whether you like it or not. However, you still have your options. You can press Win+D to go right into desktop, you can remove all metro apps from Startscreen and make it a quick launcher with only desktop apps, or embrace the best of both worlds.

Is it because as a Desktop user, the desktop experience doesn't seem worthwhile?
If you plan to only use desktop, Windows 8 is still worthwhile. For one, its a better performer is almost all areas. The amount of time avoiding the Startscreen is worth it since it is easily compensated by the speedy startup and shutdown.

  • A great backup system, much easier compared to Windows 7
