except the original start button which is something i use all the ******* time
User avatar #53 to #48 - faktura (12/09/2013) [-]
Well you can add that back with a simpel add-on, so no worries there
User avatar #130 to #53 - mondominiman (12/09/2013) [-]
I've tried that add on and it just ****** everything up for me. It showed up once then the pop up was frozen and then the button never showed up again.

I use classic shell on Win8. Works great.

it changes the a lot of system and made it difficult to customize. As the only technician in a company of 100's, I say windows 8 made my job even worse.
#125 to #5 - leswag (12/09/2013) [-]
The desktop is a better windows 7. The start menu can be useful if you set it up a bit. Apps are generally useless, but the occasional one (mainly songza, netflix, and some default ones) are nice. If you can deal with change like a normal person, windows 8 is better than 7.
User avatar #132 to #5 - JimChillino (12/09/2013) [-]
install "START IS BACK"

problem solved. w8x64 is superior to 7.

I don't even miss the start button. I only used it to find applications, and now I just use the search button for that.

I hear it's also slightly faster. (5% or something) So if you're a frame whore like me it's perfect.

Start up and shutdown are much faster than that though. I nearly halved my startup time by going with 8.

So rather than using Win 7, you are ignoring what makes Win8 Windows 8 and use it as much as Win 7 as possible?

Your choice brah
#38 to #17 - anon (12/08/2013) [-]
Well, it is also faster, and does come with a few miscellaneous benefits.

Mostly just a faster Win 7 though.

win8 takes up less RAM and will soon be more compatible with stuff than win7... or so i've heard.

#128 to #17 - noobslaya (12/09/2013) [-]
A lot of the most current laptops have their BIOS locked so that nothing before Windows 8 can be installed.
Well it can, but with way more effort than you'd like to spend on something that should be simple.
User avatar #139 to #128 - capslockftw (12/09/2013) [-]
1st problem: I find it difficult to believe that they can actually lock it

You could always make it faster. Which is one of the things 8 does; it is considerably faster than 7.
User avatar #64 to #41 - pwnfrnzy ONLINE (12/09/2013) [-]
Honestly, I never saw a performance gain between Win 7 and Win 8 except for the quicker shutdown time. The Metro UI was a horrible mess to use and I pretty much made up my mind of going to Linux after Windows 7 support ends in 2019 (I think) unless it's extended like it was for XP.

I like windows 8. It takes about a day or less to get use to, and after that it's all uphill.
Games play flawlessly, and I haven't had any crashes or issues.

If it was bad, yeah. This has all been good for me.
#110 to #105 - noschool (12/09/2013) [-]
but from what you said the adjustment period is the difficult part of windows 8, the "up hill battle" per say but once that's over it's all down hill, Going uphill is harder than going downhill. It's kind of like saying, "The hard part's over, and it's all going to be much easier from now on"
User avatar #112 to #110 - thegamerslife (12/09/2013) [-]
Magic get out of stupid comment "I'm dyslexic". lol

I did make a mistake though. oh well. Yeah, small learning curve, then your fine. I do however see a lot of computer "reviews" were the people who bought these machines just bitch about windows 8 like it's the end of the world and mark 1,2 sometimes 3 down just for having windows 8... I feel like I'm in a sea of complete morons when I go through reviews lately. :/

People who don't like Windows 8 haven't used it or are dumb. Its literally just Windows 7 with a tile screen you can use and put apps on IF YOU SO CHOOSE. Besides the new dx versions are Windows 8 proprietary.
User avatar #26 to #25 - theantihipster (12/08/2013) [-]
You have no idea how different they are. The change from desktop apps to tablet style full screen ****** everything over. You can't multitask.
User avatar #27 to #26 - PenguinsOfMars (12/08/2013) [-]
But there is still a desktop. The same exact desktop as windows 7, you don't have to use any apps from the store, or even the tile screen at all. I use Windows 8 and I'm only even see the tile screen when i first log in and hit desktop, then its back to being Windows 7.
User avatar #30 to #27 - miltorky (12/08/2013) [-]
Windows 8's architecture is quite a bit different, it was designed with touch screens in mind, which is idiotic considering most people on Desktops don't have or want touch screens. The architecture is too much like a phones architecture, the tiles are completely useless and the fact that they try to get you to integrate everything you do with a microsoft account is annoying as **** . Face it, Microsoft goofed bad this year.
User avatar #28 to #27 - theantihipster (12/08/2013) [-]
There are some programs that it causes problems for, for instance Skype. It also ****** up the memory management. It's a bitch to run programs from an external now. Sure if you just use your computer as a netbook it's fine, or it you have a tablet, but anything more than that, and it's kind of a pain to use. Still better than Mac OS, but still.
User avatar #31 to #28 - PenguinsOfMars (12/08/2013) [-]
It really just sounds like you're going of things you've heard, I've never had a problem with Skype, although I use the desktop app, i don't **** with tiles. I don't know what you mean by ******* up memory management, the OS itself of windows 8 uses less memory idle than windows 7 does, I run about 200gb of steam games from an external hdd without a problem.
User avatar #65 to #31 - theantihipster (12/09/2013) [-]
Actually, I am using windows 8. I've had to reinstall skype three times. Maybe it's a personal problem.
User avatar #114 to #26 - kinginyellow (12/09/2013) [-]
It's pretty easy to multitask...not sure if you have no hand-eye coordination. I can easily switch between programs with windows 8
User avatar #40 to #25 - grandmabetty (12/08/2013) [-]
I have used Windows 8, and there's a perfectly valid reason why almost everybody ******* hates it.

The reason why is because those who would rather have a normal laptop without a touchscreen are now forced to use a crummy full-screen Start menu and stupid gestures just to get where they want. It's PISS POOR when using a wireless mouse, trackpad or trackpoint if you're using a Thinkpad. It's optimised for tablets, not laptops or desktops, so Microsoft are totally out of their ******* mind for ditching the Start menu in favour of this **** . The app environment it provides is once again, only suitable for tablets. Why you need an app environment, AND a desktop environment, on your laptop or desktop, is just idiotic. What they have failed to establish is that laptops and desktops are NOT tablets, and they need to be kept separate, because on a laptop or desktop, the UI is now royally ****** and un-user-friendly. If you want to enjoy W8, you need to have a tablet. Otherwise, it's ****
User avatar #138 to #40 - fuckingtrolls (12/09/2013) [-]
My computer isn't touchscreen and it works just fine for me. Basically like windows 7 except I can download apps. Like this one app that lets me browse YouTube and download video/audio from the app directly.
#42 to #40 - anon (12/08/2013) [-]
Just don't use the metro UI then. You have the choice to use the win7 desktop so don't bitch.
User avatar #44 to #42 - grandmabetty (12/09/2013) [-]
But you're forced to use the Metro UI if you want to access stuff that isn't on your desktop. I don't want a cluttered desktop, I'd rather have a little menu in the corner where I can view a full list of everything I've got installed, and where I can just click and start typing and there it is. I don't want to use my mouse to endlessly drag a pile of tiles across the screen until I see what I want. It's not just that either, it's just how ugly the whole thing is. Everything's so flat and boring - I could easily replicate every design in W8 in Microsoft Paint! Minimalism is just total laziness. There was nothing wrong with Aero, and why they ditched a much more flawless skin for a boring one is not understandable at all. Now I dislike Macs, but in all honestly I'd rather look at Mac OSX. In fact, I'd rather use Mac OSX than Windows 8, because at least they had "This operating system is not designed for tablets" in mind when designing it, and went on to develop iOS instead. Just like the Xbone One, Windows 8 is a catastrophic failure.
User avatar #126 to #44 - sirwolfcat (12/09/2013) [-]
for the cluttered desktop ting, you can just have all your programs on the desktop, then uncheck show desktop icons. Now you can just open file explorer, pinned to the taskbar, and have all your programs in a list and not having the visual clutter on your desktop.
User avatar #127 to #126 - sirwolfcat (12/09/2013) [-]
And I'm not trying to convince you to use Windows 8, just providing a solution to those who need it.
#55 to #44 - matoromahri (12/09/2013) [-]
>I'd rather look at Mac OSX
User avatar #170 to #55 - grandmabetty (12/09/2013) [-]
It's a lot nicer than looking at some boring ******* squares plastered all over the screen. At the end of the day, Macs might be overpriced for what they are, and are a subject of hipster culture in lots of people's eyes. But visually they've given everything on OSX depth. Same with W7's and Vista's Aero glass - much nicer. There's dimension, it has a nice glassy effect, and it uses graphics hardware really well to make what you're looking at appear visually interesting. Who actually cares if Microsoft thought "hang on, this uses too much VRAM and processing power". I can spare resources for a nice looking operating system that's intuitive and appealing to the eye. And if you have a PC that can't handle Aero, then by nowadays' standards, you have a pretty crap computer.

Everything on W8 is cheaply made and flat. And it's undeniably the opposite of user-friendly. If this is the future of design then **** the world.

already got that, it seems to bug out if you have windows 8.1 though, so just be warned, although they may have come out with a new version to fix that

I was afraid that might happen, so i didn't upgrade to windows 8.1

neither did i, my friend did though, it glitched some things out when i tried to install it on his for him.
