Want Windows 8 but don’t like the new UI? Well, tough luck. Leaked RTM builds of Windows 8 has revealed that Microsoft has blocked all avenues where users can bypass the UI, which means if you want Windows 8, you’ll have to contend with the UI. On previous versions of Windows 8 before it hit RTM, there was still a way to bypass the UI, which generally meant that users could create a shortcut to bypass it. On the new RTM versions of Windows 8, this is no longer possible, which has irked a lot of users who would have to upgrade to the latest version of the OS when it hits.
