    I have no problem with people skipping out on an OS because of their preferences or compatibility issues after trying it out.
    I still have a laptop with windows 7 because it had issues with windows 8. It doesn't bother me,
    I think the bottom line here is that I just don't care for the thing. I had it running reasonably stable (aside from the hard lockups that happened once every day or so) but I just felt like I was running it because it was the latest thing. After all the time I used it I never needed the Metro at all ... the most I did with it was play solitaire or look at a few of my pictures; both things I could do just as easily at the desktop. I'm not planning to buy a Windows tablet either so the whole thing just stopped making any kind of sense.

    Would you consider using Windows 8 next time with a touch enabled mouse? I hear it makes the user experience MUCH better, also I use one and it makes the user experience MUCH better.

    There must be something wrong with me, I've installed it on a Netbook, had to install the Windows 7 drivers, ran like a charm. Installed it on 3 other PC's no problem, installed it on another one, had to put Windows 7 drivers on it, now no problem.

    I've got Windows 8 Pro running perfectly on 4 PC's, would never even think of going back to Windows 7.

    Discovered today when playing with a desktop at work with Windows 8 that you cannot run XP Mode with the Windows 8 license like you could with Windows 7. That kinda stinks, as I like having the fast and easy, and very small preactivated and ready to go version of XP for quick testing of things. Not a showstopper, but certainly a let down.

    Did you get the memo? xp is dead.

    Although I've heard Windows 8 has pretty impressive program comparability support, at least for some elder games.

    X2! I've got it running on all three of our laptops.

    At this point, no, I don't think so. There just isn't any functionality that I need in the Metro GUI. It wasn't that I couldn't get around the Metro, I had no problems with the mouse interface. I just don't like the implementation, that's all. The crashes were just the final straw. I didn't go a single day since I installed the thing where I didn't consider retooling back to Win7.

    No harm done. I've seen it and used it enough to know that it just ain't for me.

    Hell no. At this point there is not good use for this shit OS.
    Now now ... let's not take it quite that far, OK? It's not "shit" and I haven't said anything even remotely resembling such. Aside from the fact that I had a couple of annoying technical issues (besides the crashes that kept happening) the system just wasn't for me, that's all. I don't care much for having a tablet O/S bolted onto the back of the desktop. Some do like it and that's fine. Posts like yours lose all credibility ... you're just spamming. What are you, a Linux user or something? Don't come onto this board with 4 posts to your credit and make comments like that, please. You're just asking to be banned (or ignored).
