Anyone who bitches about windows 8 clearly hasn't tried it or is someone who doesn't like change because there's nothing wrong with it... well, except for the lack of windows 8 programs..

If you use enough time on it, you can "fix" it, but you shouldn't have to use time to change half the settings + getting used to a bad system. I'm gonna love it when I get a tablet, tho.

You can get used to everything, but windows 8 is just frustrating. To each his own, I suppose.

Okay, I'm probably going to buy a new computer soon (the one I currently use runs XP, is incredibly slow, and doesn't have a graphics card good enough for in-browser minecraft), and I was wondering what's so wrong with Windows 8? I see a lot of IT guys raging away about it, but is there anything wrong with it? Why is it getting flak?

Completely unrelated funny picture for your time

I've been using it since the beginning of the year, and I have had zero troubles with it. I actually quite enjoy it. got used to not seeing the start button after a few days. I recommend it.

I should note that I don't just use this thing casually... this is on my main rig, and I consider myself a power user. I'm in no way using my computer just for media consumption and surfing the web, I have boatload of engineering programs, rendering software, cloud and syncing apps, etc. etc. all the advanced features that were in windows 7 are still here (although some of them have been move around a bit)

I think most IT guys don't like it because it is different and they aren't used to solving problems that would otherwise be simple on XP or 7. It also has no start button but instead a "dashboard" which may be a little confusing at first but you will learn your way around quickly if you just explore a bit.

That's why most of my friends don't like it at least. I personally don'y mind it and it feels mostly like 7. I also think you may be able to find a trial of it to see if it's to your liking; I remember trying it in a computer information class with a friend last year with a developer preview.

Now for red thumbs for going against popular opinion on the internet. **** the police.

In short, it's a polished version on Win7 with the start menu taken away. Which is also why i like Win7 over 8.

Have been using 8 for almost a year now and it's just not as practical to use as Win7. At least not on a normal computer.

Well 1: microsoft is trying to go full apple on us with a "walled garden" (they choose what goes in) app store instead of anyone being able to create programs aka the Metro store. 2: it's designed around touch screens, not a kb and mouse, so if you don't have one you're not nearly as well off. 3: seven is actually pretty good and doesn't need to be changed out, unless you feel microsoft execs need a bigger paycheck.
personally having used both, for a computer, not a tablet I'd stick to windows 7

I'd only suggest getting Windows 8 if you have something like a touchscreen laptop, that's what they were designing it around. I have it on a new Asus laptop w/ touchscreen, and after Windows 7, it takes some getting used to, but now I'm the dumbass trying to swipe the TV screen or my brother's desktop...

Honestly Windows 8 is not that bad you still have access to everything you had in 7. I did the same thing you did. Went from XP to 8 and I'm used to it. I use my desktop for gaming and I really don't find a problem with it. It just takes a little bit to get used to the start menu but other then that its not too much different. And no I don't have a touchscreen monitor but I do have dual monitors. I just took the things I needed and pinned them to the start menu or the taskbar and the things I didn't want I unpinned. I mainly stay on the desktop and occasionally go to the start menu.

TL;DR
Windows 8 is a good operating system and I didn't have any trouble upgrading from XP to 8.

Am I the only person that is really enjoying windows eight? I'm a power user and I've had zero problems with it... plus it's a bit faster than seven, and it's got better dual-screen support, task manager was beefed up, system restore is more functional... I think it's an improvement as soon as you get used to the new UI.

Well 90% of the thought that was put into it was centered around portable devices and touch screens etc. They removed the start button and whatnot, made everything a ******* ap, and other things. If your on a desktop it doesn't really seem to mesh, especially if your a gamer. They simplified everything too, making windows seem more like a mac.

Most of that is UI complaints, which you get used to real quick (unless, of course, you're one of those people that fear change).

In terms of simplification, I'd really like to know what you mean. The touch side of the OS is much simpler, for the sake of those using it on tablets. The desktop side has literally every single feature and option that you had in windows 7. I can access the control panel with one click from anywhere, I can still access system files, I can still install literally every single windows program out there. I've tweaked the registry, adjusted security permissions, etc. I could go find system32 and delete it right now if I wanted to. only the outer surface of the OS has been simplified. the user still has full access to everything. That's what sets it apart from apple's operating system.

I take it you've only used windows 8 out in stores, probably on a touch device, or else you wouldn't have called it simplified. trust me, it's a completely different experience using it on a home PC or laptop. It's literally almost the same as windows seven, but slightly more fluid and with a few nice little added features. nothing has been taken away at all.

Common misconception, actually. I cross-referenced an alienware laptop against MSI, acer, other dell laptops, etc. etc. and it was the exact same price for the same or similar specs. Origin had slightly better pricing, but the shipping put the price over for me. I think alienware's fame for being expensive came from their old plastic-shelled laptops. The hardware was decent but the build quality was crap, shouldn't have been priced so high. They are much more reasonable now, though.

Their desktops are another story, though. NEVER buy an alienware desktop. big mistake.

fix apps? I don't know what you mean. you can repair program installations in the same way as you did in windows seven.

unless you're talking about windows store apps, which again, you never use on the desktop side. the windows store blows and so do most of its apps. There's no real point to it existing, because you can just run any regular program on the desktop side.

Hi. I'd like to voice my opinion on this comment. Don't get me wrong, I loved 7 and I think 8 is even better, but I didn't at first. I hated 8 just like the rest. But then I actually sat down and looked through everything it has to offer, did a whole lot of benchmarking and even a whole lot of coding. My final result is that I get a huge performance increase in most games, programs and even movies on much older video processors. (My win 98 machine with upgraded ram can run this thing, but not windows 7. (not very well, but it does.))
Now, I think this is the thing that the vast majority has a problem with; The UI and how it's not 'technical' anymore. If you change your settings, ignore the 'apps section' then it's a huge upgrade. If it still bothers you, as someone else stated below, you can get a 3rd party start bar. But that would take extra performance off your rig ofc.
Thanks for reading through my ranting.

you two must suck with computers if you had to reinstall the OS while trying to create shortcuts on the desktop, because putting a shortcut or a file on the desktop in windows 8 is literally exactly the same process as in windows 7, and it is simple as ****.

I'm an engineering student, I program and code software all the time. I've built my fair share of computers as well (even though putting together hardware has little relevance to using software, aside from flashing a BIOS and installing a handful of drivers).

it's stupid and pointless to try and remove the app section, because it's a fundamental portion of the software. It would be like chopping off a person's foot and hoping they could still walk properly. you are aware that you can just use the desktop side of the OS, right? You can set up your shortcuts and **** just like in windows 7, and you don't ever have to use the touch UI. install a third-party start button replacer and you're good to go. literally the only time you'd have to deal with the touch UI would be the logon screen.

P.S. next time, try and say you were trying to remove the new start menu before bitching that I don't understand your meaning. not my fault you can't say what you mean properly.

well since you seem to know "so much" about the OS, it has the main difference in the UI, thus I was talking about the app section.

I was trying to make a 3rd party start button/ replacement for those who hate their win 8 but dislike spending the cash for win7, and it crashed the ****. then again i am a novice, but still one buggy bit of code should not total an OS. He tried to troubleshoot the program, since he was shocked i killed his OS, that is how he killed it as well.

We decided **** that flimsy OS

thou started saying i suck before you even asked what i was doing, sorry if i am not a very polite person.

fair enough... sorry if I was rude earlier.

Just so you know, there's already a handful of windows 8 start button replacers out there. a common one I've is 'startwindows8,' by iobit.

In terms of breaking the OS, please be aware that once you start getting into system and changing windows' shell code, etc, it becomes very easy to break. That's not a bug, it's just how windows works, and it's one of the things that attracts more advanced users. It lets you access everything, which makes it easy to break it. That's the big difference between windows and OS X. OS X doesn't let you access those files in the first place, so it's hard to break it. This is not something that's new in windows 8, it's always been like this.

If it crashed it, that isn't one buggy bit of code, that's a ****** up code that destroyed the OS. That's completely your fault. you probably told it to completely delete registry values that are needed, or told it to ignore ones that are vital and you won't be able to unignore since you stopped it from being able to even boot properly. You were the only one who ****** up. The OS for 8 is actually phenomenal. It runs faster, can handle programs easier, and bypassing the start menu is very simple. If you don't want to take the time to make a single mouse click to get to the desktop, there are already third party programs that will bypass it, and have been pretty much since it's launch. The fact that you decided to write one that ****** it up is your fault, and you had to write a pretty ****** program for it to not be able to run the windows repair at the beginning and fix the problem, since that runs better on 8 then it has on any other OS so far, and does a hell of a job repairing.

Windows 8 is awesome. Tho its taking the blame for being different. Windows blue comes out in a couple months and even tho its just more of windows 8, everyone going to love it and blame windows 8 for making the changes.

Example is vista from xp. Thanks to vista we got a stable driver system, vastly improved audio system, a much more forgiving windows networking system, true multicore support, windows aero, improved start menu, much more user friendly control panel, much more powerful file explorer, improved file copies (xp would just give up if there was an error coping), a handy "default programs" window(no reg hacks to make the correct program open), windows search (who doesn't use the little search box in the windows 7 start menu), built in dvd maker, photo gallery snipping tool, and much more. Apparently tho vista SUX and windows 7 rules (rolls eyes). What did windows 7 "add": libraries, pinned apps, snapping windows, and aero peek. How is 7 vastly better then vista again?

It sounds like you don't like it much either... If you haven't already.. take a look at this. www.classicshell.net/

It gives you a start bar which I find much faster to use than metro... you can also configure it to completely disregard metro at boot and start in the traditional desktop. I install it for customers of mine that don't like how 8 works either.

Metro is awesome on a tablet, or phone where you basically do one thing at a time but it feels so out of place on a desktop built for multitasking. Either way each to their own ways... and I did what I could to thumb you up a little (red thumbs are so uncivilized in my opinion)

I'm fine with the UI. Thanks though, mate. Thumbed you up, too.
