Don't buy a desktop with Windows 8

I got this desktop as a warranty replacement for a Lenovo desktop that ran Windows 7. Sales guy said (apologetically) that well yeah this runs Windows 8. Didn't understand the comment at the time but I sure do now. Can't imagine why Windows would want my desktop to behave like a tablet, because it's not a tablet. Look it up before you buy, Windows 8 is a disaster on desktops. Office 2003 isn't supported on W8 either, what a nuisance.
