Don't want to sound rude or anything, but why you don't want to switch to 8.1? I think the're the same os, but 8.1 has start button :D

Been using 8.0 on a touch screen laptop. I remember greenhillmaniac or jody say that the advantage of 8.0 over 8.1 is its lack of telemetry. Can't prove the claim its less resource intensive though. Been a great OS though, just got to avoid forced 8.1 KB's.

Well back in 2013 I absolutely hated that os. It was weird for me at the time. Windows 8.1 improved the metro ui, added start button and for me at least improved my pc performance (especially ssd io). Telemetry can be removed, so that’s why I asked that very question. I absolutely don’t want to make anyone angry or anything, just being curious.
