    Windows 8 is a real problem I believe


    I thought Windows 7 was bad, but thought they must have improved it with Windows 8. How wrong was I. Most of my progams wouldn't run. Its a disaster in my opinion.

    I know some businesses are now allowing Windows XP to be used in place of Windows 2000, as they now believe most of the bugs have been removed. Will they ever allow Windows 8? I doubt it.

    Whats gone so wrong?

    I'm not experiencing any of the problems you vaguely described. So, unless your main issue is with aesthetics I don't think your issues are OS specific. If there were an actual problem with the OS then all of us would be experiencing the same issues.

    I'd point fingers at your hardware, software, drivers & firmware before I convicted the OS as being "bad".

    You don't list any problems other than your programs don't run. You don't even list the programs. So basically all you are doing is complaining and you aren't really looking for help. Right?

    Can someone delete this thread?

    I dont see why Windows 7 was bad though. If he meant "Vista" - I don't NEED to see, heh. :P
