What does everyone have against windows 8 ?
It boots up faster, generally runs better, and if you stop being a little baby and give metro a chance its really not bad

You can't get rid of the ****** app store.
#158 to #46 - Rascal (05/16/2013) [-]
if you dont like the app store dont use the app store.
#112 to #46 - Rascal (05/16/2013) [-]
And why do you need to in the first place?
You're just picking anything you can't do and using it as an argument - if you actually care about that, then you might just be a whiny bitch.
User avatar #113 to #112 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Well I want to get rid of it because I wont use it. It's taking up space on my computer just so Microsoft can unload their ****** apps on people who don't know any better.
User avatar #121 to #113 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
Well, if you know better, then why are you complaining? Windows has always had ****** "apps" built in from windows. What do you do about it? Download much better 3rd party apps anyways. I'm using Windows 8, I convince the IT dept. at my school to switch, and every new PC that comes through gets a fresh copy of Windows 8 Pro because it simply works better than Windows 7. The remote desktop servers are being upgraded to the server version of Windows 8, Windows 2012, which runs more efficiently on the aging servers anyways.

I'm smart enough to not use it. So it's never used. So it's taking up space for no reason when I should be able to delete it.
User avatar #124 to #122 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
Ok, how much space do you suppose it's taking up? 10-20 MB at most? If you're that concerned about free space, upgrade your hard drive to a 2TB drive, it costs only about $100, maybe less.
User avatar #125 to #124 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, but I know it's still there. It bugs me by just being there without my consent.
#128 to #125 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
Or you know, go to the start screen, right click one of the apps, and simply click "Uninstall". That way, you can uninstall all the apps and turn off the app store.
User avatar #130 to #128 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Just because it's turned off it doesn't mean it's gone. It's still on my computer.

You're not going to find an OS that doesn't have stuff like that installed. That just doesn't exist.
User avatar #134 to #131 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, but that other stuff gets used (even if it's only rarely). I've never used the Metro Store and I don't intend to.
User avatar #138 to #134 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
Then don't, it's not taking up any real amount of resources on your machine. You're complaining about Microsoft putting Microsoft software on a Microsoft OS, it's ridiculous. I could understand your complaint if it actually impacted your PC's performance or took up an excessive amount of disk space or was impossible to ignore, but the fact is, if you use the normal desktop mode, it runs faster and easier than Windows 7. The command prompt has more features in Windows 8 than windows 7, and so on. If the app store is your only complaint, then I'd say the Microsoft did pretty damn well designing Windows 8.
User avatar #140 to #138 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Meh. It's still unnecessarily different. Why couldn't they just make a faster version of windows 7 instead of putting in a load of ******** that serves no purpose.

They're just trying to wow the apple crowd.
User avatar #141 to #140 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
It's not different if you don't want it to be different... If you're only using the normal desktop screen, then it is simply a faster version of windows 7.
User avatar #142 to #141 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
I shouldn't have to set that. It should be the same right out the box.

The sheer fact that Microsoft is doing this is worrying. Will we even be able to change it at all in Windows 9?
User avatar #144 to #142 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
They're releasing Windows Blue later this year which gives a huge redesign to the Windows interface. The fact is, Microsoft is catering to the less knowledgeable computer users of the world. There are a lot more of those than there are computer whizzes, so it's a smart move, just poorly executed. Besides, no one is forcing you to use Windows. Ubuntu is a great and 100% free OS that is fairly easy to use.

Yeah, but hardly any games work on linux.
User avatar #147 to #146 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
Not true, if you install Wine, then you can run most windows programs. I don't know how far it can go, but it should allow you to do most things on a Linux system that you can do on a Windows system.
User avatar #151 to #147 - thewaronbeingcool (05/16/2013) [-]
Is that compatible with Steam?

I know Steam has linux support, but thats only for a few games.
User avatar #153 to #151 - aesguitar (05/16/2013) [-]
I've seen mixed reviews, but most say no. The games vary in compatibility.

Because since the start every second windows sucked.
#115 to #17 - Rascal (05/16/2013) [-]
And you're probly 12, so the only ones you've actually used is vista and up
User avatar #45 to #17 - covered (05/15/2013) [-]
This ***** dumb.
User avatar #12 to #7 - themastermorris (05/15/2013) [-]
Except I don't have a touch screen so trying to use multiple programs is a pain in the ass. Also windows 7 is working just fine for me so why bother installing a new OS?
User avatar #106 to #12 - thisjunkisntfunny (05/15/2013) [-]
I have no issues switching programs, I just ignore the metro **** and use the regular desktop on windows 8 as if it were windows 7.
#38 to #12 - Rascal (05/15/2013) [-]
Well then use the classic enviroment and desktop applications rather than metro and metro based apps you moron.
User avatar #30 to #12 - widgemyster (05/15/2013) [-]
Due to lack of good sales figures, they are completely redesigning windows 8. You can choose to have the silly touchscreen menu or to just have a start button. Essentially, it will be windows 7 V2.

Err, exactly how is using multiple programs harder? Works just fine as with W7 for me.. Also, who said you should install a new os?
User avatar #19 to #18 - usbfridge (05/15/2013) [-]
You did, mister North Korean citizen.
#23 to #19 - Rascal (05/15/2013) [-]
I did not. I merely stated that Windows 8 is an all around improvement of the existing windows OS. I never said go install a new OS.
User avatar #72 to #23 - usbfridge (05/15/2013) [-]
Okay, fine. You called us little babies for not wanting to use a touch screen on our computers, and you heavily implied we should install a new OS.

P.S. If you're a frequent poster, just make an account. It feels weird talking to someone from North Korea.

I use it and I have absolutely no problems with it at all.
