crap upgrade and I've been a MSFT advocate for years and YEARS--
thank god it was on the secondary computer--
refresh wiped out my programs when AMD catalyst would not let
IE10 (that sucks too) work..... I carefully read and picked the right one-
idiot software ---- no way I'm doing my other machines.
If I wanted to play kiddie squares mindlessly I would of picked Apple--
and what speed improvement - just added another layer with
meaningless kiddie squares of fluff.
sold my shares and took my loss.
and I haven't posted anything for years but everyone has got to know
that this is not an improvement .
The "live tiles" may have been a good idea for a mobile device with a tiny touch screen. To impose it on a more powerful computer with more memory and a larger screen is idiotic. Must have been Ballmer's idea. If not, he certainly approved it, in the name of tie-in between platforms, in hope of rescuing Windows from obsolescence in the age of mobile, ubiquitious computing.
Oh, and speaking of IE 10, all of Microsoft's efforts to catch up with everybody else's browsers have done nothing to slow the market's exodus from IE.
yea, guess I'm retarded when I didn't want a 32bit preview on my mostly 64bit machine (software)-
didn't have a 32 bit OS for years and would have to reload everything to get 64 8--
yea. and thanks for the name calling- enough of this board...
just keeping one person not to have the same problems is worth my few words here.
I did the same thing buying a laptop, it was just a third computer in my case for streaming video etc. It's shocking how bad Win 8 is, no it's not a retard move no one is expecting MSFT to turn their OS into a app clicking nightmare. There is no use for what they have done and it would have been simple to allow people to use a "classic" interface instead of forcing the new one on people.
I wish I pretended to screw up a very good machine with this lousy upgrade.
I don't live on these boards and spew, I came on and told a real life experience and
now will have to spend needless hours to get it back.
And buddy I lost money on this, I banked 8 would be as good as 7 and it aint.
Have a good day.
