get solutoo turns it pretty much into windows 7 with some good 8 features
#154 to #1 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
does it play good?
User avatar #179 to #1 - maturityFAIL (04/19/2013) [-]
It's really not as bad as they say. It runs faster than 7 and you can get something like classic shell to make it look and feel like windows 7. It's not that bad

>not knowing windows 8 scores better benchmarks with the same hardware than windows 7

Don't worry about the UI, I've heard news of "8.1" with some updates to that stuff

Gaming laptops are to be respected. A sager/alienware with 680m SLI is not very far behind a gtx 690 and outperforms many gaming desktops. You pay a premium for the mobility though.

> alienware
What a tool.
User avatar #136 to #58 - Timmietim (04/19/2013) [-]
The ones with a 680m sli are also about 4k eu/$
where a pc with a 690 can be for under 2k
User avatar #265 to #136 - richardbatsbak (04/19/2013) [-]
Yes. But they are more portable than a desktop. Some people need that portability.

Alienwares are overpriced. You can get a sager/clevo with 680m SLI for $2400
User avatar #266 to #265 - Timmietim (04/19/2013) [-]
Ah good. Never seen any sager/clevo's in store.
I'm at always at home anyways so a desktop is good for me.
And i like having bigger screen (soon 2).
User avatar #268 to #266 - richardbatsbak (04/19/2013) [-]
Yeah you can only buy and configre them online afaik.

a deskop will allways be cheaper and faster, just not as mobile.

first, yes gaming laptop, im a games development student so i can use it for both playing and college.
secondly, i didn't know that so thank you for informing me
and i did not know that they were goign it imporve the UI, and that's my main problem with it, it took me a month to figure out how to turn i toff without using ctr+alt+delet

Also, if you want the start orb back there's 3rd party applications that add one with some customization. This video highlights a couple of them www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqUAg3cQxQo

You can easily pirate those programs too

college and I move around houses every month, sometimes a tower would be useless

There are a good number of games that get hit with huge framerate drops because of Windows 8. Even though it is advertised as the best OS for gaming, it has serious flaws. Yes, it is better for specific games, however Win7 is the best overall.

Honestly? I think it's the same reason why people used to hate Windows XP (was different from 95) and Hated Windows 3.1 (was not DOS).

I'm sure there may be ONE legitimate reason to hate Windows 8, but it runs everything Windows 7 can, and it's Safer, better, faster, stronger.
User avatar #164 to #159 - skullzero ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
Exactly, it has everything windows 7 has (I think) and it runs my games faster and if you're not a lazy ****** , you can get things done much faster with the new shortcuts...
#167 to #164 - someoneforamoment (04/19/2013) [-]
Yeah I think the problem is that people are simply too lazy to learn how to use their computers. So computers go unpatched, get bogged down with crapware, and generally is a deck of cards waiting for disaster. Even with Windows 7.
#177 to #167 - rockyshand (04/19/2013) [-]
They took a simple procedure that was exactly the same in the past operating systems, and hid it behind glorified panels to keep up with an image. Why fix what isn't broken? The start menu was simple and everything was where it worked for the past decade or more.
#269 to #177 - someoneforamoment (04/19/2013) [-]
You realize people can make the same argument for DOS, right?

Windows 8 is great for gaming as well. Most games get more fps from it and it works better with older games then vista and 7 since it got rid of areo which was causing the issues.

Ive had my Asus laptop for around a month now, and I must say, I actually like Windows 8.

I honestly dont see why people whine about it so much.
#61 - soraisrox (04/19/2013) [-]
I had to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 8 because I have to use a laptop for college, and due to the unfavorable reviews of the internet, I wasn't excited by any means, but had to deal with it anyway.

MFW I got the laptop and it's exactly the same as Windows 7 except for the lock/start screen. It's totally cool and I actually like the start screen.

People are going to hate me for saying this, but the Windows 8 Internet explorer is pretty cool.

(The one you use from Windows 8 mode, not the one in desktop mode)
#81 to #61 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
^THIS. EXACTLY. everyone complaining either hasnt used it or doesnt know how to. quit acting like old people you guys "i dont understand this start screen, **** win8"
#123 to #81 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
i think its problems may be a little more complicated than the fancy start screen

what about 98, NT, and 2000? And I believe the pattern starts with 95 sucking (many people stayed with windows as a dos program until 98 came out, as 95 was a rather messed up port).
User avatar #35 to #13 - agentzerothree (04/19/2013) [-]
qqqqqqqqq - ****** up.
Originally it's:
Windows 3.2 - good (first commercial with a proper desktop)
Windows 95 - metric ******* of security issues
Windows 98 - fixed that **** .
Windows 2000/ME - had problems with internet connections
Windows XP - Best distribution of windows ever. (It will die in 2014)
Windows Vista - well you know the story.
Windows 7 - Fixed Vista so it became new XP but ****** up with audio drovers.
Windows 8 - To be seen...

NT are versions of Windows (independently of which I think it started with XP) that don't have Windows Media player and some other Microsoft products pre-instaled. This is made in order not to get sued for monopoly of market.
#246 to #35 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
"Windows 2000/ME - had problems with internet connections "

**** that. ME had problems with EVERYTHING.
#62 to #35 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
You got that wrong as well. Windows nt started with with nt 1.0 but the most known was nt 4.

So its:
DOS
95, 98, 98SE, ME

NT
nt4 (nt4), 2000 (NT 5), XP (NT 5.1), vista (NT 6), 7 (NT 6.1), 8 (NT 6.2)
#15 to #11 - deadlyambitions (04/19/2013) [-]
its actually pretty good with any touch screen so u just need to update
#126 to #11 - deadlyyarikh (04/19/2013) [-]
That's because windows 95,xp, and 7 all had a similar lay out with small changes. Where the rest they hired monkeys with diarrhea to just **** on a computer until an operating system came about.

Windows 98 was awesome, and so was 2000. They pretty much started churning out **** when ME got on the scene.

#16 to #11 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
So Windows Azure (8.1) should be good?
It includes a boot to desktop option, along with various other fixes/improvements.
#120 to #11 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
Updated Vista pretty much equals 7 in speed and functionality, the huge problem was it was the first with a new kernel and not a single ******* device was supported. But if a company doesn't release new drivers the blame should be theirs, it's hardly Microsoft's fault.

Someone tell me one legitimate thing that's wrong with win 8.
I'm pretty sure 90% of you probly haven't even used it, but just jump on the bandwagon for no reason whatsoever.
User avatar #145 to #140 - schneidend ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
Can it do the thing Windows 7 has where you can auto-size a window to half the screen by dragging it to the left or right?
#148 to #145 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
Yes.
#147 to #145 - dabadger (04/19/2013) [-]
Yes.
User avatar #151 to #147 - schneidend ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
Hm. Good.

I heard there is no Start button, or it's hidden most of the time, or something. True?
#162 to #151 - dabadger (04/19/2013) [-]
True it doesn't have a start button, but there are solutions to that.

1. set desktop as first icon, hit enter, dont deal with start screen

2. you can download an app from the market that replaces it.

3. you can also make a folder and make your own that works exactly the same.



My favorite thing about windows 8 is that it put any application that you dont have directly on the screen "to sleep". Then just wakes it up when you want to use it. Therefore draining almost none of your computers resources.



Plus they added a feature that if you go win8 with all of your stuff (Computer, Laptop, Phone, Tablet) Then you have access to any and all of the files on any device as long as its connected to the internet.
#155 to #151 - someoneforamoment (04/19/2013) [-]
Start button has been changed to a start menu. I did install a third-party program once to get the original start menu back, but i uninstalled it because i never use it.
User avatar #185 to #151 - jokeface ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
I'm using it right now and I have a Start button. It doesn't actually say "Start" but it's the same thing.
#156 to #151 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
There's no start button, but there are plenty of reliable 3rd party programs to bring it back. You can still access everything that was on the start menu (other than a few things) from the charm bar.
User avatar #158 to #156 - schneidend ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
I see. I'd have to play with it, but I have heard it is less than intuitive.
#161 to #158 - anon (04/19/2013) [-]
Honestly, it's just different. Just like any other OS, you have to learn the layout. Once you know where stuff is, I'd say it's better than win 7
#165 to #158 - dabadger (04/19/2013) [-]
If you have anyquestions about it, feel free to message me.

I work in a retail outlet and I am certified in Windows 8.
#152 to #145 - dabadger (04/19/2013) [-]
It also has an improved snap feature so you can do it to thirds, have 3 open, or set two windows and have one as a third and the other as 2 thirds of the screen

All i see there is opinion, opinion, opinion, opinion...

Personally I like windows 8, yes its different but that doesn't make it bad. I agree the "apps" suck donkey dick and some of the quirks and features take a little getting used to but so far it seems faster than windows 7 to start up, snappier to open files and programs and in my personal opinion which i know some don't share, it is better looking than windows 7.

There is no need to fight the OS, it's really pretty simple. If you want a version of windows that looks and feels like windows 7 then why not just get windows 7? Nobody is forcing you to have windows 8, I like, I'm gonna keep it. You don't and that's fair enough, you don't have to like it.

TL;DR - You aren't forced to use windows 8 on your PC, if you prefer windows 7 then use that instead.

User avatar #18 - luidias (04/19/2013) [-]
I have yet to hear a valid complaint other than "I don't like the new UI."

some people raise valid points about not liking how it seems that microsoft is trying to convert their software to touch, but that's more about microsoft's product strategy than about windows 8 itself.

I have nothing but good things to say about windows 8. All the new features are quite nice, and i got used to the UI within a day of using it. Most of my time is spent in desktop mode, anyways.
#19 to #18 - tiredofannon (04/19/2013) [-]
Only problem I have is I have not been able to get a single c++ IDE to work on Windows 8. That and skype is an app so if I'm IMing someone I have to keep it to the side and other people can read my conversations.
User avatar #149 to #19 - SergeantPWN (04/19/2013) [-]
Do you mean IDE's (Sublime Text 2 [my personal favorite], Notepad++, XCode?, etc.)

Or compilers such as MinGW?
User avatar #63 to #19 - theaceofthespade (04/19/2013) [-]
What C++ ides haven't you gotten to work? I've yet to run into any such problems
User avatar #22 to #19 - therealgambit (04/19/2013) [-]
You can download the desktop version of Skype, I have windows 8 and the desktop version. Just go to the website and download it like you would on Win7.
#23 to #22 - tiredofannon (04/19/2013) [-]
Was not aware of that.

Still doesn't solve the C++ IDE issue though.

C++ is a programming language. and IDE is an integrated development environment is basically helps you program.

have you tried checking if there's alternative commands for windows 8?
#28 to #27 - tiredofannon (04/19/2013) [-]
An IDE is a program in its own right. It should install and run. My other IDEs for Java work just fine. C/C++ do not. Hell, the one I have for C# works (though it took uninstalling it and re-installing it 3 times).
#48 to #28 - zeedeveel (04/19/2013) [-]
Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio Express work great. I use it a few times a week with no issues.

#32 to #28 - nonumbershere (04/19/2013) [-]
I find that surprising. While not true Standalone IDEs that can build projects designed to run on computers, as you are probably looking for, RobotC (works for programming the Lego Mindstorms NXT and hopefully the EV3 when it comes out in C) and Kiss Platform 4.0.5 (works for programming the KIPR Link in C, C++, and Java)

Also, I use NetBeans for java projects, I thought that had a decent C/C++ version which should work, right?

ANd what IDE are you using for C#. VIsual Studio 2012 works like a boss on WIndows 8

I don't understand the ********* of win7 vs win8. imho win7=win8. The whole "Metro/Modern UI functionality sucks" argument is stupid; the start menu for windows 8 functions just about IDENTICALLY to the windows 7 start menu. Type to search, have programs pinned to it. The only difference between the starts is store apps and the aesthetics. Apps are just programs that run full screen, nothing more. You don't have to use apps from the microsoft app store, it just provides another place to get programs.

Performance-wise, windows 8 is just about the same as windows 7. I've heard that windows 7 is a bit stronger in gaming benchmarks. However, windows 8 has faster boot up times (which doesn't mean much if you have an SSD). So in terms of performance, about equal.

Aesthetics. The only argument I acknowledge is aesthetics. It all boils down to preference, but I find win8 to be prettier in many cases. However, the inconsistencies in style really is a turn-off for someone into aesthetics.

I must test software under different configurations on Windows 8 on a desktop PC.
The controls are really annoying and stupid- I mean- 'oh, you're at a point with your mouse here, where the adressbar should be, if this is a touch, the addressbar will show up, but you use a mouse, lol'.
And I need to Press ctrl + i for that **** .

And there is a lot more.
Sometimes i just want a new shortcut. But the way to fine the Programm and link it to the Desktop are now so complicate. Windows 7- Start- 'enter program here' right click- drag drop- create shortcut- finished.
Windows 8- where is the desktop again...?
And and and...

I think Microsoft don't want to be make new OSs anymore and try to disgust peoples.

Install Start 8.   
Basically doesn't load the screen with the tiles, loads up like Windows 7.   
   
Trial is free, like $8 to buy, but you can afford that if you just bought a new laptop.

There's nothing actually wrong with it, just the people that complain are just too damn lazy to get their heads out of their ass and actually look for stuff for once.

This is what everybody who bitches about Windows 8 sounds like... Nobody has a good complaint other than not liking the UI and being too stupid to find the desktop.

Well, the thing is, having a UI that's easy to use is incredibly important. Rule #1 in upgrading a product, is that your users shouldn't have to relearn everything about their computer to use it. Windows 8 is a great OS for a phone, like my HTC 8x, but for a desktop computer, it's just too drastically different when not even half the market uses touch screen desktops/laptops. Windows has always had a tendency to release the right product at the wrong time.

I agree with the compliant and i use windows 8 but all in all people just need to get used to it i have and in some regards it is actually better and easier to use, the major complaint i would have is most of the keyboard shortcuts were remover to favor the windows key + x, this brings up a menu with the old shortcuts, the problem is just getting used to a new UI as i said before.

People who dont like windows 8 = People who dont know how to use it

Its actually pretty convenient even w/o a touchscreen or a tablet, although they do make it better. Its just like windows 7, only with a new layout that if one knows how to use, is pretty awesome

I have it on my desktop. Went from Win 7 to Win 8 and there is no god damn thing that makes Win 8 as bad as people say

I use Win 8 on my main pc with stardock start 8 (start button simulator) and disable the metro screen. It's effectively the same as windows 7 like this except it boots a lot faster and I prefer the stock interface.
#210 to #195 - vincernio (04/19/2013) [-]
Yup, takes up less of my RAM, and puts less of a load on my CPU than 7 did. Mix it with Start8 and get rid of the metro interface and it's a pretty damn good system.

For those bitches who cry all the time about that there's no start button. Download Start8.
