Don't pay out good money for Windows 8
Windows 8 Is CRAP!

First When Installing It takes an age to start the installation. When you have installed it you are presented with Crap tiles and no Start Menu.

There seems to be no way to log off, I had to do a Control
Alt Delete to get to the logout screen. It won't let you use Microsoft's Security Essentials.

And as for the Themes well now you can't change the colors and have to live with an over bright background and their sodding colors.

Also have you noticed that there is no way that you can email Microsoft. There are no email address's displayed on any of their web sites.

Save your money, Don't wast your time on Windows 8

Re: Don't pay out good money for Windows 8
Did you not learn with windows 95, 98, 98me, 2000 was ok actually, then came windows xp gave birth to ie 6, then we got vista wtf, then they copies vista repackaged it with new icons called it windows 7, and now somehow have vomited up what looks to be a complete disaster called windows 8... I dont know wtf they are doing at this point and judging by their multiple home screens neither do they.

Funny shit, ububtu, fedora, suse, and a few others look WAY better.

Fuck apple although I do respect their marketing as they created a whole generation of mindless consumers.

Indeed and since I gave up "new age" gaming (because they suck) I wont have to upgrade anytime soon for DX upgrades. I never had a PC longer than 2 years without upgrading...now this rig just hit 5 years old :D

I like it. It runs faster and more stable than W7. Even the task manager is new and improved.

I did have to disable the built in virus protection. It slows down the disk access too much. But all anti-virus programs do that. I prefer to do periodic scans rather than use real time protection.

I have seen it crash once. No blue screen, but something similar.

I don't understand the nostalgia for XP. W7 made XP obsolete. W8 makes W7 obsolete.

Re: Don't pay out good money for Windows 8
I'm scared 8 will have severe compatibility issues with older software.

Also concerned that my files will be harder to manage and end up all over the damn hard drive.

Yes. I have XP on my desktop. Love it. Also Like Win 7 a lot. Vista made me an insomniac for 2 months. What a wast of money that was. I have an old homebuild system with 2000 Pro. can't do much on it anymore. But damn it's stable. I have a few old games on it, like simcity4 and simcity3000, GTA, Duke Nuke 'em and Doom and a flight sim. It still works great for internet though. I do remember 95 and all the lines to buy it.

Re: Don't pay out good money for Windows 8
I have it on one pc but haven't used it enough to know whether I'll keep it or not.

I do plan on installing a start menu though, for certain!

This site has plenty to choose from, most of them free. I'm sure there are others online if none of the start menus listed here are to your liking.

Dont like the missing START button in Windows 8?
Install this then:

[link to classicshell.sourceforge.net]

Classic Shell is a collection of features that were available in older versions of Windows but were later removed. It has a customizable Start menu and Start button for Windows 7 and Windows 8, it adds a toolbar for Windows Explorer and supports a variety of smaller features.

(yeah, its free!)

That's the problem.

We shouldn't have to fix a brand new product.

The marketing team was replaced by a bunch of MTV ferrbie grooming hipsters.

They degraded windows to the level down to mac.

We need functionality not eye candy. That's why windows dominated the office/government market for years.

Re: Don't pay out good money for Windows 8
I installed the 8 start menu and disabled the pointless bloat-ware, ad-ware, spyware, called metro....

Then I realized the hype about it being faster was complete bullshit. It's actually quite a bit slower than windows 7 for basic tasks like navigating / copying files / opening my favorite browser.

I saw the uselessly bloated ribbon in explorer, shitty window management, lack of aero peek, ugly aero themes, and lack of any customization in desktop mode.

I went back to windows 7 and I couldn't be more satisfied.
