Some people are forced. Microsoft is starting to force companies to ship new desktops/laptops with this terrible piece of junk.

Windows 8 is shown to be the faster OS as compared to Windows 7. I have Windows 8, and i don't like the Metro UI at all very much. I have this app called Start8 and it makes the computer act like windows 7. You get the start menu back and can configure so that when you login it takes you straight to the desktop. Also you can access the Win8 metro start at anytime by pressing some hot-keys.

Windows 7 can be just as fast as Windows 8. Just turn off the Windows Aero (The thing that makes windows and the taskbar transparent). Plus, don't forget: Your Windows 7 is probably cluttered with all sorts of stuff you installed that will slow down the boot time.

 

My computer is a dual-boot (I have Windows 7 and Windows 8 on my hard drive) so it's easy to compare the two.

 

And the fact is, Windows 8 is designed from the ground up to work on touchscreen interfaces. KB&M (Keyboard & mouse) were mereley an afterthought for Windows 8. Microsoft themselves admit it (They didn't word it that way, but you get my point).

 

Windows 8.1 is Okay. It doesn't really fix any problems other than with the UI, and adds only a sprinkling of convenience, such as Boot to Desktop, a calculator as a Windows 8 App, and the Start Button (Which actually just takes you to the Start Screen. The Start Menu has still not return yet).

 

Oh and by the way, to close Windows 8 Apps, you have to put the mouse at the top of the screen, then drag the window to the bottom of the screen. That "feature" just helps to prove how it was designed solely for touchscreens.

Yea I'm not getting it due to that, sticking with Windows 7 for now. That whole tablet program thing kind of turns me off there. It's not very practical (imo) for those who have non-touch screen laptops and/or pcs.

I would, but I don't know a lick about it Smiley Tongue. So it would be pointless (at least at this time).
