I have Windows 8 on my laptop, and let me tell you...I have no idea how Microsoft isn't dead yet...that thing is an abomination, completely not user friendly, and if you move your mose slightly to the corner, it switches your tab....I know they suck at making consoles but **bleep**, they're starting to slack now on software too??

Re: windows 8 SUCKS (help)

The worst thing that happens to me with Win 8 is when I'm using my laptop that is made for Win 8, touchscreen, very sensitive touchpad ... sometimes I brush the touchpad wrong when I'm typing and the metro interface from swiping on the right to left side opens. Big deal. Robot tongue

 

Win 8 works for me even better on my non touch computer. My desktop is really my favorite machine ever, running Win 8 is all it's done.

 

I've worked with:

MS-DOS based computers

Windows 3.1

 

I got my first home computer: Win 95

 

Built one with Win 98, eventually Win ME for a bit, then Win XP ... and stayed with WIN XP the longest through diffent computers/laptops.

 

Eventually had a laptop with VIsta and that was the first time I HATED a windows platform.

 

I got Win 7 on that machine eventually. Had Win 7 on other laptops. Nice, solid, drove me nuts loading though.

 

Win 8, new touchscreen laptop, it's really nice, light, works, boots easy and it's like Win 7 otherwise for the most part. It can be just like Win 7 if you wish to do it. I usually worked from things I had pinned on my taskbar in Win 7, and do that in Win 8. I work out of folders and can find my way around just like in Win 7.

 

I have Win 8 on the desktop I built, on another laptop too. On an All-in-One computer as well. It can do anything I've thrown at it. I've had no compatibility issues. 

 

But this is all my experience and so it is my opinion that Win 8 is a newer OS, it's very light and fast and just works better overall IMVHO. Yes, there's  learning curve because of the overlay of Metro.

 

Every new OS has haters and likers and lovers. Every new OS eventually becomes what most are able to understand and use.

 

Vista was a bridge that was difficult to cross, and way more annoying and useless than Win 8.

Ha ha ha! I use Google to search. I use Chrome. I use Win 8. I like it all. Win 8 is not the problem, it's the people who are the problem. They aren't getting over the hump that keeps them from enjoying it. Fine. Complain away, it helps tremedously.
