Consider the following: if you want windows 7, then get windows 7 (but i guess most of you don't build your own pc, so what i don't care, dell fan-boys can go die in a fire pit covered in oil just like Hitler)

The future that Microsoft is building towards is incredible. Imagine the sleekness of an Apple product with all of the features and usability of a PC. I type this on a surface pro, and I am loving it. While there will always be a place for desktop setups with large screen, keyboard, and mouse, I think people will latch on to full powered computers in the tablet form factor. Once a few things are straightened out (battery life), I think that this will take over as the predominant form of personal computing. Needless to say, I can't wait to see where computers will be in the next five years.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidently show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidently saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particlar looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO FIND THIS OUT!!!!!

Y'know, I just got a Win8 laptop, and it's actually pretty neat. I think people are just upset because they can't accept change... but how do you expect to improve the tech if you don't change some things? You can DL apps to get the start bubble back as well, if you're really that upset about. Like it or not, this program will probably be the new standard interface. Once everyone gets used to this and likes this, they'll change it again, and old windows will be long forgotten. Just accept it and move on.

You shouldn't have to download an app to get an interface that doesn't treat the user like a retard incapable of finding their own way around the system.

Maybe it's just because I like things being in order, but Windows 8 looks like a messy *********** of uncategorized applications.

Maybe at first. I hated it and almost installed Win7, but I decided to stick with it. If you can actually adapt, then I think you'll find Win8 easy to navigate... you just have to use it. I don't mean stand in WalMart for half an hour fiddling with a computer on display... I mean actually use, get adjusted, and customize it to how you want. The biggest obstacle is just learning how to deal with change.

That applies to literally anything ever created, though. Use it enough times, it becomes familiar. The reason I don't like 8 is because it's a change from a system that worked perfectly fine to a system that requires me to either relearn everything I know OR install programs and things that change the interface back to what I'm familiar with. I disagree with this "start from scratch" approach when seamless small changes (moving the Vista "minimize everything" button to the right side of the taskbar, having windows snap to the sides of the screen for easy side-by-side comparison) over time to an existing proven model was what made Microsoft's systems so functional.

But that's the problem, the system that was working perfectly fine before is being outdated. I love the previous WinUI, but they have to advance with the times. Everything is changing, software, hardware, how everything interacts with each other, just tech in general. Microsoft has to make some sacrifices to advance with the times, or Windows will drop to be thought of the same as Linux. Still useful in the areas they are designed for, but the general population overlooks them because they don't understand how to work an old UI with an entirely new system.

The fact that you use the line "make some sacrifices to advance with the times" amuses me. Isn't the point of scientific and technological advancement that things get BETTER, so that we have to make FEWER sacrifices?

I'm totally on board with 8 for tablets, but on a desktop machine which hooks up to a monitor, the old method worked best and will continue to work best until long into the future. Also, from what I've seen and heard, there's very little of a "whole new system" going on with Windows 8. It's basically 7 functionality with some neat little toys and a whole new UI. Seriously, Metro is THE BIGGEST CHANGE rolled out with this OS. For what? So your tablet and desktop look similar?

The thing about "the times" is they don't just happen by themselves according to the will of some divine hipster-god and everyone has to follow along with it. It's simultaneously shaping and being shaped by the general course of advancement and style, which is why shoving Metro down our throats is something I strongly disagree with. Let's take a system that was flawless and required nothing whatsoever to get used to because it worked in essentially the same way computers always have. Now, should we slowly push toward a more multimedia/interconnectivity state of being and see where things flow naturally? Or should we just slash out THE START BUTTON and replace it with a tablet OS which requires the climbing of a learning CLIFF in order to achieve basic competence with - which STILL isn't as functional as what we're moving away from.

"But it's the times! They're changing! Gotta get with the times, man!"

If it comes at the expense of productivity and functionality, then sign me up for custom-built Windows 7 machines for the rest of my life.

Thats the thing. A PC doesnt use APPS, only MOBILES. A desktop computer uses PROGRAMS. It's stupid how they wanna target the mobile users by saying "Hey! we got apps too!"

Plus, my gf has windows 8. Cant install programs. exe files. Must be files that win8 uses which i have no ******* idea what it is. And why are people buying win8 and then BUYING an app to make it look like win7? Just buy win7 from the start. **** logic right?

I do agree with you there. I'm still learning the ropes of it as well, I've had it for around a week and and a half. But it's been constant use, whereas you probably only get to ask your gf or watch use it occasionally. Also, people buy the program because they assume Win8 will be better, they don't like the look right off the bat, and instead of toying with it and just getting used to the changes, they decide to change the interface.

Also why would anyone ever buy it? Just torrent those programs.

I do agree with you. However, Microsoft is still a company, and have competition to deal with. Apps are exceedingly popular, especially with the upcoming generation. They can screw around and continue to used program based systems, but most likely they will act in the interest of what gives the most money/is most popular, which will be apps. If this fad dies out, you can expect all the companies to slowly start either back to programs, or to a new tech. I do agree with you, but I also understand why Microsoft built Win8 like they did.

It's not really the interface that bothered me, I actually got used to it pretty quick on my new desktop, but I couldn't use any browser other than internet explorer and even that would randomly crash, and it blue screened a few times a day so I had to acquire a copy of Windows 7. If all that's been fixed I could be coaxed to pop in the backup cd I have once I can move all my stuff to an external drive or something.

Personally, the desktop isn't my main concern, mine is how they handle video games on their marketplace. Last I checked, they wouldn't be letting any games rated above PEGI 16 on to their service.

This brings me to my next point; if I remember correctly, certain OS features are locked unless the app (game, software, etc,) are Microsoft approved. This effectively gives Microsoft a pretty tight grip of what is or isn't allowed on their OS.

Personally, I'll be going where the games are, and if there is a big move to OSX or Linux then I'm gonna follow along. Valve has already been vocal about their dislike for Windows 8 and has begun supporting Linux more, so we'll see how the next few years play out. I'm not gonna make any big decisions until the dust has settled a bit.

I was just like you guys but honestly after a few weeks with windows 8 I wouldn't switch back. It really is better.

I was just like you guys but honestly after a few weeks with windows 8 I wouldn't switch back. It really is better.

I realize that many people don't like to learn new things and will not make the same decision I made. But I wouldn't call myself a retard because I enjoy 75% faster boot time, better memory management, faster program launches, as well as instant universal system file search, the overhauled (phenomenal) task manager, and the new app system. Also, when you add phone numbers, calendar entries, music, videos, documents, etc. to a windows 8 account it mirrors accross any Windows device you own. For instance, I own a Windows 8 phone, and if I add my homework deadlines to my schedule on my phone it shows up on my computer's calendar. If I need to edit a document on the bus it edits it on my computer. If I torrent an album and put it in my music folder it shows up in my phone's music library. That's not to mention that Windows 8 lets you use apps so instead of opening a browser and searching for the weather or signing into netflix I just click one button and I get all my information instantly. Windows 8 seriously is the best piece of software Microsoft has put out in years, there's a reason they're a multi-billion dollar software company while Google provides all its products for free through advertising and Apple uses marketing gimmickry. In many ways Microsoft is the last real software company, and they've done a fantastic job with Win8. if you haven't tried it you should give it a shot.

Well then you probably don't need Windows 8. My point is that people bitch that it's so expensive and overly simplified, but it's actually very powerful and functional, and people just don't know what they're talking about. Windows 8 is not the next Vista, read any review and you will see that people are mostly blown away by it

How's windows 8 when it comes to freedom of ******* around with your own programs? I mean this completely seriously because a lot of OS's seem to have a hard time letting me do what I want, even if I have all access to the system. Also the compatibility seems to be an issue, but from what I've seen the issues tend to be because they're third party programs. What's your experience with gaming on Windows 8? Regardless though the operating system still seems a bit buggy for now and I would probably wait till they update it a little, not to mention I don't have money to buy it so I don't plan on upgrading anytime soon.

It's basically 7 on steroids, the desktop code is almost identical. There are slight performance losses with ATI video cards because ATI is dragging their ass on optimizing the drivers, but it's only like 5-10 fps disadvantage. I'd say it's worth it for the faster boot time and memory management, but that's just my opinion. Plus I feel like learning Windows 8 is important since we'll likely be dealing with it for the foreseeable future.

Eesh, 5-10 fps would ruin me. I'm running on a 3-4 year old ATI 4800 HD and Athlon dual core and barely breaking 24 fps on newer games so that drop would kill me on anything fast paced. I'll have to wait to upgrade at least my motherboard, CPU and RAM before I could think of getting win8 so I don't have to worry about processor issues at least. Once ATI stops being a butt about their drivers and performance goes up I may think about it though.

I found the 7 year old on your thread.

Anyways, raging aside. I actually like Windows 8, maybe it's because I'm on a touch screen laptop but I don't think that changes much because most of the time I also use a mouse and I get used to it. Overall the performance is good and I like how you can download apps for things. I never really found that much difference from Win 7 aside from the start screen which worked magic for me.

Well, I have always wanted to be thumbed down into infinity...

I like windows eight. When I want to go straight to internet or netflix or steam, It's right there in front of me, and never seems to lag like icons sometimes do. And when I feel like using a regular looking desktop setup, there's a button which allows you to do just that. Moving my cursor to the corner of my screen makes it easy as hell to mess with the various settings or search for something.

I had gotten a new laptop recently with Windows 8 on it. In all honesty though Windows 8 isn't that hard to get used to. I first saw the live tiles on the home screen and was like "Oh ****, this looks complicated." then after you start toying around with it a bit you realize it's not that much different from Windows 7.

That's the part that I will never get. People see the tiles and say that it looks "complicated", when actually those tiles were supposed to make things simple. And most people are not like you and get stuck with that opinion, because first impressions count and short attention spans rule.

I think the problem is that people see this and think: "It's different. Can't use this!"

And no, I am not a Microsoft employee. I am not even a Windows user (except at work, where I have to be). I just wonder about all those people who go on and on about how tech savvy they supposedly are, but put them in front of something that they are not used to, and they are like "HURRRR DURRRR DIFICURRRRRRT!"

Yup, there would be some hot fuzz in her pants, she (her name being Sky) would fall onto the bed, and then his enemy would be at her gates.
Innuendos abound.
