Window 8 is faster & a cool experience. You will love the change so much you won't be able to put it down. It is my favorite operating system out of everything and I have everything Google Android, Apple, etc. I never picked my Apple device up from the week Windows 8 came out. I honestly looked around to see where it is just know and I have no idea. I bought a Nokia Lumia and the Apple stayed at home 1 week later. Direct X makes Windows 8 run faster and the start time is almost immediate no several minute boot time. The look is so modern and reading the new and surfing is modern & fresh. The flicking of the touch screen makes everything you used to do twice as fast. If you are holding down the scroll bar to go down the page that is pretty slow. The apps are fantastic. If you do not know there is an app for basically anything you want. I got the CNN breaking news on my windows 8 phone and the lock screen. The Boston incident was there within 2 seconds of happening . It is amazing to be informed and important for investors. There are a large amount of apps for free and some have low fees. The Xbox music is fantastic. You will find songs re done different and better than you remember. I love the music. Putting live tiles for the programs you want on the start screen is great. The free cloud storage is fantastic for photos and transferring files from phone or work PC's. The Windows 8 Phone & Windows 8 Laptops sync so good I do not even have to do anything. I set it up once and all my contacts, photos etc are updated automatically. The Windows 8 Phone, Windows 8 Touch Screen Laptop & a pair of Wireless High Grade Speakers = A hell of a great experience. I do not know where my Apple device is and the google tablet is the worse pos I ever used.
As much as I like MSFT.... "Windows 8 is faster".... are you serious? Windows 8 has absolutely no speed advantage over Windows 7 at all. And "a cool experience".... did you run out of good things to say about Windows 8 already?
