Taylor wants to get a PC with a copy of Windows 7, but he's having trouble finding one. Leo says that's by design because Microsoft wants people to buy Windows 8. Leo's not much of a fan of the "modern UI", but he's found a way around that with Stardock's Start8 utility.
For $5, this brings the start menu back, can customize the background, and more. Or, he can wait until Windows 8.1 comes out in a few months which has numerous improvements including the return of a Start button and the ability to boot straight to the desktop.
