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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, but I know it's still there. It bugs me by just being there without my consent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Is that compatible with Steam?

I know Steam has linux support, but thats only for a few games.

I've seen mixed reviews, but most say no. The games vary in compatibility.

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?

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.

Well then use the classic enviroment and desktop applications rather than metro and metro based apps you moron.

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.

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.

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.
