Re: Windows 8 is shit
Oh yeah, like for instance Apple is better in that department.... Sorry but you're a moran. The "PAY FOR APP FOR OS" is actually a THIRD PARTY released tool, or close to a hack - that fixes Microsoft's F-up in Windows 8 for those who prefer to have a old school start menu. WHAT IS SO HARD TO GET ABOUT THIS? *YOU* CRAZY!!!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 930283


And that is STILL why I like Windows and dislike Apple/Mac. Apple wants control over everything, in Windows you can STILL hack and customize the OS and get many different third party tools and hacks that Apple would HATE if they were released on MacOS.

Win8 (that piece of shit) is the sole reason for that proprietary uefi shit. Microscrew is sweating all the people jumping ship to Linux. And they should be. So they Try to make steps forcing vendors to go the way of locked boot loader. Make no mistake. .. that is where this is heading. Just like your smarty phones.

Part of the reason MS stock was down 12% on Friday.

After the Vista debacle I didn't think it was possible to make a worse operating system.

but with windows 8 Microsoft actually succeeded in making a worse operating system than Vista

I fix pcs and sell new ones.


On average I sell 3 or 4 pcs a month.

I've sold one windows 8 machine since it came out.

No one wants it because it's a heap of horse shit.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
I'm far from being an expert but my operating (only) experience goes back the the DOS command prompt days and imo our Vista OS is absolutely the best next to XP, ME was a pos joke.
 Quoting: CMcC


Yep, same here. Windows NT4.0 was also great and then dead. VISTA is a great O/S but my machine is getting old, I need a replacement. Is it possible to install VISTA on a WIN7 or WIN8 box? I mean formating or changing out the drive, will the new HW designed for WIN7 or WIN8 support Win VISTA? Thanks.

Imagine if a new car model came out where they changed the location of the pedals, removed the wheel and put on a joystick instead, changed the dashboard, and made you sit backwards looking into a big mirror to steer.

here I am in my custom, hacked version of Windows XP. It has everything I need...and ONLY what I need. No bloat, only the useful stuff. All files are in the right place and there is nothing hidden from me.

Now tell me Microsoft, why would I waste my time and money to learn a modern OS with tons of hidden stuff? Just to keep up with 'everybody else'? fuck that

Still in beta looks like , but if it matures as well as nLite, it maybe worth a try if you are stuck with Windows 8.

disclaimer: I still run an older os, so I haven't tried this.

Re: Windows 8 is shit
Win8 is not bad once classic start is added. You can have both Win8 with it's free apps and a regular desktop with a start button.

WARNING.....
It does not automatically create restore points like it says it does, until that option is turned on.

If you try to "REFRESH", as opposed to restore, you WILL lose all the programs you added through the desktop. You will also have to reload most of the "apps" loaded through Win8, although it does give you list of the ones it deleted. If you think refresh is less drastic than restore, think again.

Thanks Bill for a nightmare.

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.
