    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit - Windows 8 64bit


    I've been playing with it all day. I think it SUCKS! I can't stand Metro. Who the hell thought this was a good idea for the desktop!? I know you can use the registry hack to disable Metro, but then it is basically Windows 7. I see no point in upgrading. For the first time I'm considering skipping a new release. I've never done that before.

    I waited a while before trying Vista just because of all the negative things people were saying about it. I actually believed it sucked....that was until I tried it. I still don't understand all the hate for Vista. Vista 64bit has been 100% rock stable and fast for me....same as with Windows 7.

    Windows 8 might as well be called Windows 7 touchscreen addition.

    Nice!

    Or, maybe, trouble with Metro edition.

    Really, it's not that bad - just different.

    I think what MS is targeting, eventually, is the iPhone and iPad market. Think about it, your smart phone or tablet looks the same as your PC, pretty much.

    Homogenization and comfort will become keywords in the near future for MS.

    You mean to say "Windows 8 Tablet Edition"

    It really really sucks.

    I can't believe the final will be anything like this.

    So far, pretty much. Once you get used to it, it's not so bad.

    As I mentioned above, MS really, really wants this to go over so it can take over the smart phone and tablet markets (a la iPhone and iPad) and have a fairly homogenous user experience.

    Windows 8.1 + StartIsBack + AeroGlass


    I like the new additions to Windows Explorer so far, and I'm sure there are other improvements here and there we will find out about in time. In general though, I think it sucks as it is right now because the new UI is only there to boost their efforts on the mobile space and it represents a huge step backwards for desktop users like me. I don't want to be too harsh though because it's only a preview after all and it's all subject to change. Or at least I'm hoping so.

    I'm truly in love with.

    "Glitches" like the Start Menu and Metro Apps not able to close 'em entirely, I hope will be fixed in final release ( fine-tune ). It's too early and we're just talking for Dev build.

    If not, I guess I must get used to.

    Also, I extremely love the Square Design the Desktop got. I've an "issue" with the curves in 7. Along with Ribbon, my Explorer shines.
