Windows 8 may have a different look and feel and may have a usability issue for some but what's more important is that the OS is improved substantially. Suddenly programs that didn't work on Windows Vista work again and data I thought I couldn't use anymore is accesible again. My complements.
I agree. Windows 8 does run pretty good. It's less resource intensive since Microsoft ditched Aero. Also it's compatible with more hardware than Vista. Windows 8 could have been a really good OS. But then, they totally hosed it with the Metro graphical interface. What a shame.
If you don't like the Metro interface get all the colourfull apps off and put your own stuff on the starter interface. There are ways to work around the metro interface. What I absolutely prefer above artificial niceties are file handling and file directory. I do think though some strong window features like right click handling are to be brought back.
Don't you wonder, Paul, if the toady realizes that comparing 8 and Vista for purposes of determining superiority of one over the other is equivalent to comparing a dog turd to a cowpat for the same reason...?
phands how did it go with the sailor bois last night eh- you sound kind of grouchy like if your wares aren't selling anymore out there on the docks- I guess eventually you will have to make your offerings free- now that your HIV has become obvious to all but a few
