Re: Windows 8 is shit
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.

All those who are saying windows 8 is a pile of shite do not have a clue what they are on about nor do they have a clue as to what is happening under the hood.

Metro is here to stay yes it is different qua look and feel but it performs better boots faster smb 3.0 for large transfers works so much better, task manager is better, file copy is better.

I didn't like it during the beta testing stages either but I'm used to it now and all our systems at home are running it now kids find it easier to as well.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
It's truly repugnant and insulting that in Windows 8 as you start up your computer you are instantly thrust into "Microsoft Application Store" and something that look and work pretty much like an ad pillar.



And on top of it you pay good money for the damn thing!




WTF was that Microsoft !?? Do you think we are stupid?

Under the hood it's fine. It's the Metro Interface that's strapped on to it that makes "Windows 8 User Experience" shit.

The only stupidity I am witnessing in this forum and elsewhere is from fanboys like you who think that accepting change means accepting what Microsoft arrogantly presumes too impose on it's user Windows user base in order to further its own goals.

Right now Microsoft is telling everyone to bend over. Forgive me, and other "luddites" for remaining standing. You, and your fanboy friends, are welcome to bend over as Microsoft attempts to penetrate (the tablet market, that is).

Too many stupid fanboys afraid to criticise the corporate giant.

Another Excellent Post:

I'm just not a fan of large corporations who think they can jerk their customers around with impunity to further their own goals (in this case, penetration of the mobile touch-screen-device market).

And judging from the comments here and everywhere else on the Internet a lot of other people aren't, either.

Microsoft will certainly survive this fiasco, but it would be nice to think they'll learn something from it.

It's marginally faster because (1) they've stripped out some bloatware from it too impress the easily impressed, and (2) You have a newly installed OS that is not filled with junk and autostart stuff yet.

When people say Windows 8 is faster, forgive me for saying so, but it demonstrates a certain degree of stupidity and ignorance.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
I'll wait at least for SP1 before I install it on one of my boxes.
Security and hardware issues always surface after weeks or a couple of months. Let them fix that first. I'm no guinea pig.


And it's indeed ignorant to yell it is lightning fast.
So is my XP and W7 when I newly install it.
What will the speed be after 3 months?

Yes, it's amazing what a Mammon like Microsoft can achieve when it has so many bewildered followers. Talk about the kings's new clothes!

Seriously, I believe Microsoft could sell shit. Proper, human shit, and tell it's worshipers that it's good for "smellin' while workin'". And people would buy. They'd queue up to buy Ballmers stools.

If a genuine Ballmer stool appeared on ebay, I bet it would sell for a lot of money.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
Windows 8 is garbage. I use apple products for the most part, but recently purchased a laptop with basic Windows 8 on it. I went to the Office.com website and purchased the University 365 product. It would not download because the trial version already on the computer would not let it. It took techs over two weeks to figure out how to repair this problem.

My initial contacts were futile. The service desk techs were totally ignorant and hung the phone up because they had no idea how to fix the problem. Several times there were 20 plus minute waits just to be hung up on.

Unfortunately, the problem was not limited to downloading the Office Suite, but involved internet connectivity as well. It took a total of 5 hours on the phone, and higher level techs realizing (there really was a problem) for the laptop to become functional.

This launch is a complete disaster for Microsoft. The start screen looks like it was designed for a 12 year old girl. If the intent was to compete with Apple, then it is a dismal failure. Now instead of Apple using its foot to kick Microsoft's behind, Microsoft uses their own foot. If I am in the board room of Apple, then I am on the floor laughing so hard, I can't stop the tears. Maybe Microsoft can pair up with Lionel and design trainwrecks.

There are way too many problems with the Windows 8 platform for it to be launched on the public now. My assumption is they thought the problems would be overcome by the public doing the trial and errors work for them instead of refining the platform in a controlled test environment.

Vista in many respects had the same challenges. After enough bandaids were put on it, they decided to call it Windows 7. Windows 7 is nothing more than repaired Vista. Windows 8 will probably have the same fate. After a thousand or so updates, it will probably be called Windows Infinity or some other relaunch name that their marketing department comes up with.

yeah no that inferred too much freedom of choice so they removed it in the final version.

also folks good luck trying to find office 2010 anywhere. I disagree with most of the commentary here about win 8, you just have to not spend all your time bitching about change lime a prepubescent girl and learn how to make it work. But office 2013 on the other hand...holy shit! That is as big a difference as switching from windows to Linux (and not in the good way)!

Metro is the biggest pain in the ass ever, but...

They actually made a lot of improvements if you like to use the keyboard :)

Just hit the Windows key, and start typing part of the name of a program you want to run. Each file that is automatically set to open with a metro app, just change it to whatever old app you want and you can safely avoid metro.

When you double click on a jpg file to look at it, Windows 8 opens it up in a slow application. When you close the application, you get a glorified blue screen of death, and Windows 8 is then locked with that blue screen, until you press a secret combination of keys on the keyboard.
I will not tell you how to get back to the desktop.
Go try it and see for yourself if you have Windows 8.
