    Way to give Windows8 a chance. It's way better.

    I'm dual booting Ubuntu (Precise) and Win8.

    I can't decide which is more awesome.

    @OP: Every reasonable person has had ample warning that Windows 8 suck for PC gamers. At overclock.net, there is currently a thirty page thread or so, wherein PC gamers say they won't buy or upgrade to Windows 8 and will stick with WIndows 7.

    Even completely clueless people (e.g. my grandmother) must have eventually suspected that there is good reason that people willing to spend thousands of dollars on PC equipment just to gain 2 FPS, are saying that Windows 8 is garbage and spending one's money on it is a ripoff.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    I never got win 8 in the first place. I knew it would be shit long before it came out.

    Windows 8 is made for systems with touchscreen interaction. Installing it on a regular system is like going for crit on an affliction warlock. It kinda works, but it's suboptimal. And some folks feel it should therefore be avoided.

    I'll be enjoying W8 on my laptop, with start button, using the desktop, not looking at metro and having a smoother experience.

    I find it funny how it seems the far majority of people who have bought it (such as myself), say its great, but the people who dont have it, hate it.

    Sure, there are the occasional few such as the OP that hate it, but I'm loving windows 8 and I do believe its worth the upgrade. I was alienated by the start menu at first (like 3 days), but it does have the same functionality, just type and it will search. Thats all people really used the old one for anyway right?

    Here's hoping the steam linux beta goes well!

    But yeah, every other version of windows sucks, that's pretty well established.

    I have 1 SSD with W7 and 1 SSD with W8. I just swap them if i want to switch. The only reason i've gone back to W7 is because RAD Studio (my development environment) kept crashing. Lost an hours worth of work with that (yes yes, "Save Regularly", but it was a new project so i'd only got the absolute basics down). When it works properly on W8, then i'll go back. Until that time, i'm sticking to W7. That's the only reason, nothing else.

    Although we have a W8 thread already, i'll leave this open (as it's more about those who aren't on W8 as opposed to those who are and are discussing the tips and tricks of it), though i expect responses to perhaps have died out naturally by the third page.

    You are just slow at adapting to new things. Windows 8 is great, not seeing any issues with gaming or whatever. The new start menu is actually useful now, and it's good that Microsoft are not trying to be an Apple clone.

    What's funny is, I ended up getting it for free from work, so I reluctantly installed it at home just for the hell of it. I figured many wife, who is totally clueless when it comes to anything related to computers, would hate it and would just reinstall Win 7 anyway. She freaked out going from Office 2007 to 2010, the ribbon was too much. Last night she tells me she loves it! She thinks it's easier to use than Win 7.

    There you go, that's the demographic that will make it a success IMHO.

    Windows 8 is not terrible as such. It's just that it's a tablet interface pasted on top of a Windows 7, so... might as well stick with Windows 7.

    That said, it has multi-screen taskbars natively, so I haven't bothered booting up on Win7 for more than a month now. Got used to losing the start menu after a couple of weeks anyway. I just made a link to the Program Files folder and stick it where the start icon used to be on the task bar.

    My brain cannot comprehend how anyone could hate the Metro UI.

    A) You don't HAVE to use it

    B) Metro is fucking awesome

    How do you know that? Also a good explanation is that people who don't like it, aren't gonna buy it.

    Thats all people really used the old one for anyway right?
    For some.

    Say what? I don't use Windows 8 at all and haven't even looked at it but from everything I've seen heard (even from MS themselves) is that it's geared towards tablets, especially hardware controlled by MS. You know, exactly what Apple has been doing for 5 years since the first iPhone (and their proprietary hardware thing goes back to the 70s).
