If average users don't know how to shut off a computer, I don't see how this is irrational hate. It's a massive stepback and a clusterfuck of a product.

Well, it's like this:

Me: Why do you hate the Windows 8 start screen?

Win8Hater: It's too hard to shut down the computer.

Me: Just press CTRL+ALT+DEL?

Win8Hater: How's an average user supposed to know that?

Me: Are YOU an average user?

Win8Hater: Well, no ...

Me: *facepalm*

Win8Hater: But I must recommend, purchase, support, and advise normal users. Therefore, I hate it for the problems that will be very real to normal users. I also do in fact find it for less efficient even if I can use Google to search for keyboard shortcuts.

NOT F'IN' IRRATIONAL!
