Everytime Microsoft releases a new version of Windows there's oodles of these kind of comments but people just keep going back to Microsoft's vomit.

Mint is built from Ubuntu. (or upon it as it were...)

I have always been a HUGE Suse fan, but have recently migrated to Mint after some testing and such on my Son's Laptop.

VERY stable. Highly supported. It's now my "go-to" Distro. JM2C

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.

Google can just sit back and watch as the MictoTitanic sinks rapidly into the abyss.

I think I'm going to use that distro then.
If it is built of the foundation of Ubuntu it should be straight forward and good GUI.

Each successive version of Windows is dumbed down more and more. It makes it great for idiots but not so handy for people that are actually computer literate.

Thanks opie. I never planned to update anyway.
if i ever fancy anything new i will create a boot for the latest linux -ubuntu or whatever.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1546575


yeah you might want to back up a few versions, the latest ubuntu i just installed has no task bar or start button either.

it also does that dumbshit mac thing where it detaches the menu bar from applications and puts it at the top of the screen, rather than in the window it's actually for.

ugh

They say computers evolves... by getting more easy to use and less complicated..

Well Windows 8 really fucked up that theory.

Windows 9 is going to be Dos x64 with 320 gigs ram support and 3 tb hdd support.

Doskey is going to be a dlc at launch thought.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
You can download the classic windows shell application and have everything back, including a start button!

The installer includes Classic StartMenu as well as the Classic Explorer and ClassicIE9 options - they can be installed together or individually.
Classic Shell supports Windows 8 and enables you to bring back a XP, Vista or Win7 style Start Menu and Start button. It also includes an option to automatically skip the Metro/Modern screen and go directly to your desktop when your computer starts.
Read our article How to use Windows 8 without Metro for more information.

Thank you much.

I run XP on a desktop and it works for me.
In fact, the desktop was the very last in town that came installed with XP.
All the others featured Vista.
Which I tried on a laptop and hated.
So listening to all the hate regarding Windows 8 just brought all that Vista crap back... to me.

Your post showed me Windows 8 can be simmered down to an XP format.
And at no extra co$t

We can go get that laptop she wants us to have now.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
I could use some enlightenment about the SkyDrive bit.

I don't have a tablet.
Don't have a smart phone.

I could not care less about a cloud.

I'm assuming, from a short perusal of the net, that if I got a new laptop loaded with Windows 8 I don't have to use SkyDrive....

Meaning.... files are not automatically saved to it/a cloud if I have no need for, "sharing," or accessing anything away from that laptop on other devices.

Is this perusal/perception correct?

TIA.

Well ~~~~~~

Windows 8 is unuseable. It doesn't even support email !!! (normal pop3 - so all your own servers mail settings can't be used)

I was going to install Solaris 10 - a free 64 bit OS that is 100% stable and 100% virus free. Then Oracle bought out Sun and stopped the downloading of the system free - they are only interested in companies.

I suggest that we all change to Rasberry Pi computers (look it up) and start having FUN again !
