    Windows 8 & Windows 7 Dual Boot

    He may have been a former MAC user and is unfamiliar with Windows
    My experiences with Windows have been good.
    Loved 2000
    Didnt care much for the bubbly look of XP
    Loved Vista before SP1 then hated it.. (do you want to allow?)
    Windows 7 awesome
    Windows 8 fantastic!! was a little annoyed at first with no START icon, but you get over it and find that (F3) is your new friend!
    The search box will put you directly where you want to go instead of browsing through command trees. Its like the difference between an audio cassette and a CD.. You have to move linearly through the audio cassette to get to the song you want where a CD you just jump straight to it..

    Mff, My systems are too expansive for F3 to work - four drives varying from 320 to 1TB in each box plys my 2TB My Book. The Search is too slow for me using F3 or any other way. As a matter of fact, Search has not worked for me since XP, when I look for something I want it to search all files and folders. In XP you could design an advanced search better.

    I really don't need it anymore, I have default places where I put certain saved things.
