    I was just trolling thru and popped out from under the bridge. I like 8. With 2 weeks experience I'd rate rate it A- to A. Only FREE OS qualifies for A+ rating.

    Not having problems learning way around.
    Thought I had cure for everyone missing start button. Change icon on File Explorer to windows icon and pin it to taskbar. Nogo!

    just my 1 (2 adjusted for inflation)
    Exactly right, there's nothing hard about Windows 8, just a bit different, a lot of things are actually easier to find, like the device manager and such.

    it also boots faster, closes down faster, runs faster, is MUCH better on old machines, does file transfers faster, easier with Networking and if you want you can just pop in the store and see if there's any Apps you might like.

    Whats not to like. But okay it needs a bit more polish, but that will come if everyone gives it a chance. And no I'm not Coke.

    Yes, it is an item menu!

    this is not the feeling I have. If I look at the benchmark, the difference are so tiny that I can't see how someone can notice it.

    You learn just by typing here on the forum...

    You probably know the French better. Right?
    Do you know something about virtualisation? Then you might still be running all the XP's you got.

    I already seen XP enough, I can't smell it anymore. Actually I will be very happy if MS release a new OS every 4 months. As I said I like Windows 8, but for me it's not even a beta it'S an Alpha, a not well finished product. The Metro thing will be great when they gone really adapt it to the full potential of a desktop. My Intel 6 cores CPU is way more capable than this. Bring me some real stuff to run MS. I don't know bring us some moving 3d effect like the Linux Compiz cube, not a flat and doll start pages like they give us. I deserve better than this after have support them for 30 years. I want to have something that look like in CSI not something that look like a 1982 Atari

    I dual boot Windows 7 and 8 and it was actually one of the first things I noticed with 8, for me at least I seem to get about a 20% increase in Wireless transfers consistently. Even when I transfer to USB HDD, which for me is pretty good as I move a lot of Movie files around. I buy them burn them to a HDD and then transfer to a NAS or other USB HDD.

    When they made it all glitzy and glamorous, everyone hated it even more than Windows 8, it was called Windows Vista.

    windows 8

    what i think about windows 8 and my grade for it.


    I might be one of the few that feels like windows 8 is like a incomplete project. I mean if I was a teacher and I needed to grade windows 8 as a project I would give it a 65. passing grade just because is workable. reason why I feel like this is because a lot of the features that we had in the pass are not in it. example SELECT ALL in the mail app not there, don't know maybe I have not looked hard enough. the whole new concept is great, operating wise beautifully constructed. I just think we deserve a full product for once not a x-pack. Windows 9 no expansion package that's the goal Microsoft should be setting up for them self's.
