Re: I hate Win 8!

Sure if I could get rid of Metro screen, the price is right at least!

Re: I hate Win 8!

If they offered the option of a classic desktop UI at install, it would probably be on all my machines already.

Re: I hate Win 8!

The closest I came to Win8 was to try IE10 for Win7. Just like IE9 it would crash every couple of days. IE is great for downloading Chrome or FF.

Maybe that IE10 for 8 is better.

Re: I hate Win 8!

Maybe MS is just counting on the mass' sheep attitude "hey it's a new windows so it has to be better and let's waste our money on it"

Re: I hate Win 8!

Windows 8 violates some very basic UI norms, and unnecessarily forces new ways to accomplish similar tasks on users. Not cool.

I can't even begin to imagine the chain of decisions that ultimately culminated in such a flawed product (one which billions of people rely on a day to day basis) to be released to the public. Absolutely unbelievable. Thanks for listening to my rant.
What he said....LOL

I really don't want to load a thrd party hack that will break with every Windows Update......

Just to fix normal functionality that MS SHOULD have included in the first place....

It's never going to be adopted or sold widespread......

Having said that....it has some nice "guts"....memory management and speed for a couple.....

And If I could configure it to be a more familier interface.....

It would now be residing on every machine I own....and I imagine my school system would already be making plans to buy it....

That equates to.........SALES....

And that is not what they are getting....or will get......

And Gwillikers bought a book....I admire your dedication G.....maybe you can shed more light on this....

but here is the thing.....and it's kinda a BIG thing.....

How many other folks will "buy a book"....to learn the intricacies of this product......

When they can go buy an iPad....and be up and running and be fairly competent in all of.....oh about 15 minutes.......

Honestly....the only thing I use my PC for anymore is some financial stuff (less and less as APPs get better and better).....video editing.....and Gaming

Mostly gaming....PC Gaming is just FAR superior to ANY gaming experience!

And Valve is already developing a Linux based PC/Console/everything.....to link specifically with Steam to give users the "Ultimate" gaming experience.

Times....they are a changing.......

Re: I hate Win 8!

Well they ported IE10 and DX 11.1 into 7 so maybe they're smart enough to port back some of the good things into 7

Re: I hate Win 8!

To be honest, I don't even like Windows 7, its too glossy and glassy. Windows XP is where Microsoft peaked, honestly.

I Love Windows 7, one big thing is drivers support with W7 compared to XP, most installs you don't need any other drivers than what W7 supply's (a few but not like XP), but that's why its a PC...lol

Re: I hate Win 8!

I was in Staples the other day and noticed a sign that said something like "switchable to your familiar desktop" in reference to some laptops displaying Windows 8. I was in a super hurry and didn't have time to investigate. No doubt there will be "patches" to make it somewhat bearable. First time since I have been using windows, (3.1) that I have not upgraded to the latest OS. They have to know that everyone hates it, but for whatever reason, are still cramming it down our throats. It's like they want to dumb down user interface. They want home PC's to have the same or very similar experience as a cell phone. Win8 is actually pretty nice on a smartphone. Think I'll stick with Android though..

Re: I hate Win 8!

Microsoft | VG247
Well some people are sure bout MS going off the edge
I for myself am not sure though if I would wanna be put before the choice of adapt to Linux or buy overexpensive Apple stuff... well I HAVE been considering Linux but I think it might still be rather complex for most users
