    Enough Is Enough!


    Just spent the day yesterday building my machine back up to Win7 Ultimate from scratch. I'm done with "8" for the duration. Latest problem: hard crashing when more than one Metro app open with busy desktop.

    Sorry guys ... this thing just ain't an upgrade. I've got better things to do than fool with a tablet O/S on my desktop. It's been fun.

    Wow ... I forgot how much I liked Aero Glass!

    I have to ask: did you update your drivers?

    I've been noticing this more and more, a pattern if you will, with retail desktops. As far as upgrading the OS or clean installing on these retail PC's. Anybody else see this or is it just me.

    Yup. Been doing this awhile. Just not worth the trouble. Not an upgrade to me.

    When I upgraded my girlfriend's laptop, Asus UX31E, I found that the upgrade assistant did very little for the drivers and it was all sorts of crappy. Cleaning up the driver issue and loading fresh ones seemed to fix it right up.

    Well you gave it a try! (Or at least I hope you got a chance to try anyways).
    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,

    Areo Glass is the weirdest looking thing to me now. It's like..... comparing Windows xp to Windows 7, it's weird! Why is everything glowing?....

    To me, I notice it's more of a distraction after using Windows 8, without flaw, for a while now. Microsoft has been trying to remove focus on window chrome since the inception of Windows Longhorn/vista and TOTALLY screwed the pooch on that. Every time I see a screenshot of 7 or use it, I ALWAYS, without fail look at the window chrome first over the window content itself.

    Odd.
