Re: Windows 8 is shit
It's probably the only thing my husband and I disagree on, he loves his windows 8 and I HATE it! I'm like how the heck do I use the calculator, and he's all like "...Alt shift control f5 b 2 tab..." or some crap. I just want to click the dang icon.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
yer i agree its horrible

what i really dont understad is that they say its to make it more cross platform

so why havent they included the pc version of the most used button on any phone

the pc used to have it with the start bottom left but they binned it lmao


even if its returned it still leaves a mess of a UI with things randomly spread all over the place and even the most basic of thing gone forever

i think they forgot that win8 will be installed on a pc and ppl expect a few really basic things

Re: Windows 8 is shit
I installed it, completely removed the METRO UI and installed this [link to www.stardock.com]

Now I have an updated version of Windows 7 with a much more optimized kernel and support for the latest hardware and applications !

I agree it needs a little work, it's horrible "out of the box" with that Metro UI which has NO PLACE on a PC but if you're willing to put a little work into it...I think it's well worth it afterwards.

It boots up much, much faster than 7 you can clearly feel the fact that huge parts of the kernel have been completely rewritten and the old code from NT removed !

What a stinking pile of dog shit this operating system is. The Metro interface is all cloud based which totally eliminates any sense of privacy and security for the end user. On top of that, the desktop is now cut down and has the start button castrated. Finding one's way around is now guesswork since the OS offers no visual clues as to what the fuck is going on. The file manager now incorporates that totally fucked up ribbon bar - the one that everyone hates. It's inclusion was made to piss everyone off no doubt.

This operating system was designed by fuckheads - for fuckheads.

MicroSHIT is well and truly finished now that this putrid garbage has appeared since no sane person would want to run such an obnoxious and intrusive pile of shit.

Windows 8 is dog shit. I received a free copy from school and tossed the damned thing out the window. You can use that metrosexual bullshit operating system if you want I'll be using Windows 7. Windows 9 will be make in India. Probably have Kali as the mascot. When that happens I'm cutting the cord. Here's why.

You can do the same thing in wondows7. Click the start button, type "calc" in the box, and viola, the calculator pops up on the screen. That's sooo simple. Now I just got to figure out how the calculator works.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
Metro is complete shit. I utterly hate it. It's probably nice for tablets but it's terrible for desktops.

Luckily there is a solution. Download Start 8. It's $5 and adds a start button. It will boot windows straight to desktop and you basically never have to use metro again.

With Start 8 Windows 8 is basically a faster version of Windows 7.

It's ridiculous that a 3rd party had to make a start button though. Microsoft doesn't get the message that people want an OS based around their desktop. They don't want an OS for a tablet for their desktop. They really dropped the ball on this one. Consumers don't want this Metro and cloud bullshit.

I hope another viable OS for gaming arrives soon. I'm tired of Windows. I know Linux is stepping up it's game but it needs to support all games for me to make the switch.
Ayatollah Khomeini:
“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world…. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers]? Islam says: Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] verses and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

And about the gaming issue...don't hold your breath ! Almost all modern games for PC today are entirely dependent on DirectX, which is MS technology, so you won't see Linux supporting too many games soon !

What's with everything being run on cloud...
I don't like this idea.
 Quoting: ~Spaze*Man~



And THAT is the point, fuck "mandatory" cloud.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26204811


You ignorant change-fearing retards crack me up. There is no mandatory cloud on Win 8. Apps, including metro apps run local, just like traditional apps. Ooh, but metro apps are installed FROM the Microft Store! Well fuck you! ALL android apps AND Mac iPxx apps are installed from therrh respective stores even your Linux Mint app manager downloads packages from the cloud and you faggots arent bitching! And you can still install traditionalwinows apps too that arent sourced from the cloud.
The Metro interface does not run from the cloud, it runs from the PC. Why dont you ignorant fucks get a clue about what your talking about before flapping your herpes gums.
Microsost motivation behind metro on win8 is unified end user experience between Windows Phone, Windows Pc and Xbox 360.
Once you really figure out the new interface, its fucking faster to get what you need.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
in the developer versions of windows 8 there was registry hacks you could do to get your start button back and the functionality of classic windows.

however in the released version to the public there is much more they changed than just a registry hack.

[link to classicshell.sourceforge.net] works good and its free.

there are others that cost money and can do a bit more also.

Microsoft's business model is to push new O/S's and software on you even if you don't need it.

This Win8 piece of garbage is doomed.
Totally USELESS on a PC and in any business environment.
No way companies are going to retrain everyone for this piece of poop.

Chalk this one up to another Windows98ME and Vista flop.

Good riddance when it goes too.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
Couldn't agree more mate. I "upgraded a Win7 64 bit to Win8 and had a totally useless machine as result. Worst still, its not possible to get the wreteched OS off my machine and revert to Win7 without obliterating drive C and losing all of my programmes & data!
I cant se what MS are up to with Win8. Why try to copy Apple or Android? These do a different job for different end users. Microsoft was the professional OS for business uers with Apple OSX for arty farty types and Andriod for geeks. Win8 seems to be aiming at those who arent professionals, aren't arty farty creatives, and arent geeks -thats right; who? Lost the plot IMHO

Win 8 is good you just need to download classic start menu which you can get for free so it works like windows 7 but updated features.

I have no problem with some of the apps like netflix that is easy to use and find movies.

I don't think some people understand it to well but ms is right that in the next few years touch is going to be common even for phones too that you can feel textures and more.

The best MS has made was 98 SE, 2000 and XP... after that... pure gov $%^ware

Windows 7 has far more obscure backgroundprocesses than XP...

The kind of services you can't disable because it breaks stuff.

Forget Windows Vista, 7 and 8... it's pure $%^ware, believe me.

Use XP SP2 (not the SP3 $%^ware enabled version)

or

Use Linux... even better... try Fedora, Mint or anything else you like.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
personally I love it. For the first time we have a stripped down version of windows with as little bloat ware as possible. My machine is running a ton faster and I actually like the new start screen and for those looking for the calculator just bind the icon to the start screen. I have everything useful there, no more searching the start menus under cryptic company names
