As for the windows 8, it seems that it runs slightly faster (not a lot) and you can switch the look of it back to the normal/tradisional look just by pressing the windows key + D. The same with the start button, press Win + X and vola, it's back to how every other OS has looked.
Don't know about the speed, but you're mistaken about going back to the normal look - there's no way to get rid of Metro, and there's no way to bring the start menu back. There are, however, some free third-party apps which will do both. Twiggy, I don't think they'll give you a downgrade, you'd have to already own the OS. Or there are other ways of obtaining it.
