Hi rocks, no you don't. It makes no difference as long as it is installed, download and install classic shell http://www.classicshell.net

This will give you a windows 7 desktop experience with classic start button.

Enjoy

When Windows has such a wonderful reputation for being Hack proof who would need another Firewall/Virus Checker.

Windows vista and 7 visually where very similar, all the differences were under the hood, mainly in performance.

In order to make 8 usable the first thing I did was get rid of the metro screen in favour of the desktop. I also needed a start button to quickly navigate around my files etc. Classic she'll simply does these two tasks. Along with a few other tweeks. Windows 8 is very good with a few mods!
