    Oh people hated XP alright, like I said even more so than Windows 8, Windows 95 might have been even worse, people never settled down until W98.

    Sorry this is false, and totally BS , no one was hated XP, they find reason like, " I' m afraid my software will not run ", "it's may be not stable" But no one was making bad comments on the new interface. Those was reasons to not switch to XP not hate. Everywhere, the majority if peoples hate what MS do with Windows 8

    At the time of Windows 3.11 to Windows 95, well they was no forums on Internet, so no one was really talking about it.

    Oh, what a great philosophy. I get it, if I wouldn't like my house burning down, it's only because of being afraid of changes. lol.
    I'm not even going to bother typing a serious response to this. It's a horrible and very flawed argument, and I'll leave it at that.

    [QUOTE=4wd;166591]

    btw, about changes here:
    dos > 3.11: Great
    3.11 > w95: Great
    w95 > xp: Great
    xp > w7: Great
    w7 > stock w8: what the heck!?
    No comment on W2k, Vista?

    Again, you're making false claims and putting your own twist on the things others are saying. Where in this thread has someone said they are strictly a Windows user?

    I have 3 computers - 1 has Windows 8, one has Windows 7, and the other one has XP. The one with Windows 7 has a dual boot with Ubuntu. I'm very fond of Linux, actually. Of the 2 tablets I own, one is running Android while the other is Windows. I also have a 2nd gen iPod. How exactly did you come up with this argument?

    Furthermore, you have yet to refute what I said in post #36. I can't blame you there, I would ignore the post as well if I was making false claims and called out on it.

    "This new version of Windows is going to be a disaster, pundits say. It will be completely rejected by businesses, who will stick with old versions even after Microsoft drops support for them.


    And its new interface is so hideous and unusable that customers who are forced to use it will trip over themselves finding ways to restore the old Start menu."







    I am, of course, talking about Windows XP, which was released 11 years ago this week. It lived down to all those insults and dire predictions for years before it finally and implausibly became a success.

    Oh I forgot to mention, they had a poll on this forum when the early releases of Windows 8 were coming out, I was the first one to vote that I liked Windows 8, it wasn't until about 15 votes that someone else said they liked it.

    Oh, and there were forums, but in those days they might still have been called bulletin boards, can't remember.

    "As for Classic View, more than 700 of you demanded its survival--as opposed to 3 who liked the new Windows XP look. Many complained about XP's "Fisher-Price interface" and noted that the first thing they do on any XP machine is switch back to Classic View. I wholeheartedly agree."

    I do agree with BillWindows about the negativity. He is right, more time should be spent exchanging ideas and helping each other solve problems instead of bashing Windows 8. Like someone else said, no one is forcing anybody to use Windows 8. This forum should be more positive.

    yes, we call it BBS, you also have thing like CompuServe. Internet was there, but not as much expended, only at the university they have it here.

    On this XP thing, I remember very well, peoples was asking me if it was good, with 8 they don't even ask, they already ear it's not good at all. Balmer is seriously in trouble, the share holders will act for sure. Now they still believe the crap Balmer told them, but when they will not see the money, they will act.
