    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).


    @Bill:- Fair enough, I wasn't having a go at you, just having a bit of a 'moment'.

    I'm actually pretty happy with W8 overall, apart from a few small niggles.

    Wenda.

    That's okay, I have some small niggles myself, but they've been mentioned time and time again on here so no good me jumping in as well. I'm sure Microsoft will eventually get it all straightened out. But even with the niggles I like it a lot more than Windows 7 and would never go back, even just the general snappiness and clean look make it better for me.

    it wouldn't get much of a response. people there generally like it in there are they aren't that many people who really don't like it. so you won't find a situation where many come in complaining about things and a few supporters just talk about how great it is and we're not seeing the point.

    The more immediate impact, though, is that Windows 8 sales aren't going to be as strong as Sherlund initially projected. The analyst has trimmed his expectations for the fiscal year that ends June 30, believing that revenue will climb 8 percent, to $79.6 billion, instead of his earlier forecast of a 9 percent jump, to $80 billion. He now expects operating income to grow 3 percent, to $28.9 billion, instead of 4 percent, to $29.2 billion.
    "We see little near-term good news, but with an expectation for better traction later this year," Sherlund wrote.

    Nope that is still only a prediction and it was headed down not up.

    Believing that revenue will climb 8% to $79.6 Billion, that's up, his expectation is down, so what.

    but there is also reason for optimism about the second half of calendar 2013 when several improvements converge," Sherlund wrote..

    Then Win 8 should be renamed Canute - he also failed to stem the tide!!

    I think most are expecting MS to fix it.

    Hence - it is bad now - but likely to get better.
