Did you notice that Win8 looks just like Win7 in safe mode? Try it
Because now the trend is going for a minimalist flat design. It's not Windows 8 only, but other mobile platforms such as iOS7 and Android's Holo theme too.

My observation is many topics seem like sort of a "pick your battles" philosophy. Sometimes its accepted sometimes its not when it comes to Windows and Hardware topics. Kinda depends if anyone wants to talk about it or not.

I'm not looking to argue the point(s). Just trying to gain an understanding of what is acceptable topics for discussion.
To err is human, to blame it on a computer is even more so.

Windows in itself is OK to discuss on the forum. But, Microsoft Office is not, because it's commercial, and does not come pre-installed on Windows.

No discussion on commercial/shareware products is allowed. Not even mention, except in some rare situations.
