    Windows 8 Critique

    Ya know - I didn't bitch about Vista.
    A whole lotta people had a whole lotta complaints, but I held my tongue and worked through it and it turned out (fairly quickly) to be a fine OS.
    I am, however, fairly goddamned disgusted with Windows 8.
    I am trying to be patient , but I've gotten more errors and crashes in 6 months than I had in 6 years on Vista (I tragically skipped 7 entirely).
    Maybe Microsoft should stop trying to copy Apple and just stick to what they know best; and what their customers really want in a computer - simple, solid & straightforward "folder-based computing".
    Have all the bells, whistles & apps you want on your various devices for the kids - they are your market. But still make a basic desktop OS that actually ****ing works cleanly and don't goddamn crash every time you add a few hundred media files (old people still buy computers and we can remember more than 8 songs at a time).
    And while we're on the subject of Media Player - how's about we stop it crashing every time I pause a media file?
    While I do love trying to remember the exact moment my file crashed, it would probably be more convenient if I could actually watch them through to the end....just sayin' ;-)
    All that being said - **** Macs - Windows Rules !!!!

    There is Mint 17.1 Cinnamon if you simply want basic, reliable computing with a friendly interface. And it is free.

    Right, that's a good solution. Or Mint Mate which you can run in virtual or from a flash drive for testing.

Fair objective critique of W8 in Business sector
Hi there This IMO is an objective and about the fairest review I've seen on the adoptobility of W8 in the business sector. Ms shouldn't worry about its future as a company as it's beginning to get more revenue from its other divisions than Windows itself so don't sell MSFT stock just yet. ...
