Hard to know how to express so fed up. Purchased 2 Dell XPS ultrabooks with Windows 8. After months of trying to use Windows 8 with various problems (with all Dell and MS updates installed) have reached the end. Good help from Dell premier support but Windows 8 is just aweful.
The W8 interface is so confused and obtuse, not like windows, not like a tablet.
Security issues r a killer. Have Windows home server but nvr able to access from Windows 8.
Wireless connection drops for no reason.
IE crashes constantly, unworkable.
I try my XPS with W8 and just give up. Go to my iMac and everything works as expected.
I see MS accept Windows 8 was a knee jerk and Windows 10 is coming. They should nvr have dropped XP which was great, and now they r dropping support for W7. I think windows is in its death phase.
I was a Microsoft MVP for 4 years supporting it and helping others (in XP days) and enjoyed it. I cant defend Windows now any more, or even use it effectively myself.
My last resort short term is to buy W7 for the XPS in hopes to use my Dell investment.
After that I'm going Apple devices and nvr going back.
Windows, so sad, from great innovation to unusable operating system.
With regret, time to leave windows. My conclusion on Windows..my user name.
No response or help required. Get me out of here (i.e. windows).
