8.1 and StartISBack helps alot.
Start Menu 8 or any other program above.
Also, 15 sec start and shutdown /love
But please elaborate. What exactly does windows 8/8.1 offer you that's so great? That cooking app it comes pre installed with, or maybe the advertisement apps?
Windows 8 (and particularly 8.1) is a much better OS than 7.
Those ripping on 8 have absolutely no idea what they're talking about, and no idea how to use the OS.
8 made quite a change to the interface side of things and because most people are too lazy to spend time learning the new methods of navigation, they immediately slam it as bad. The reality is that if you bother to take the time to learn how it actually works, you can navigate far quicker than on 7.
The people who say they miss the start button / thinks the "Metro" UI is horrible are the ones who aren't very good with computers.
Being called foolhardy just means regrets and limits won't ever stop you.
meh its alright, starts pretty quickly, my main problem is that i cant seem to play HoMM3 on it
the iPad/Smartphone-esque start screen is pretty pointless imo, but doesn't seem to interfere with anything
if i could be bothered i'd go back to 7 however, thank goodness i got windows 8 for free then
I love how you call people who defend Windows 8 a fanboy. Makes you seem mature and smart. You are mature and smart though, right?
Nobody forces you to use Windows 8 either, as you so maturely put it. You are free to downgrade or install another OS anytime you want.
I'm gonna go ahead and close this. There's nothing that's been said here or will be said here that hasn't been said in the dozens of other threads about Windows 8; nothing constructive will come from this thread, those that dislike W8 will use the thread to complain about it while those who like it will try to defend it.
