Windows 8 Opinion

Rate this Entry
Hello all! Im here to talk about Windows 8! (review it)
Windows 8 has been released on Friday, 26 October 2012 after some free prelalease versions. Once you have installed Windows, your PC will be getting preapeared. In this time you will see on the screen informations about new features.
When this is ready the new start page will pop up with some options. You can choose to go to some places such as Hotmail, International news, Internet via IE10, XBox 360/Windows game store and the classic Windows Dekstop.
In the dekstop you will notice the removal of the Start button. If you press Windows Key you will be redirected back to Start page. If you move your mouse cursor into any corner you will se a menu with some options. Its such as the old start menu, pressing search will search for programs and folders, start will get you again to start page, with devices you can have 2 monitors (idk all features here lol^^) and pressing settings you will can go to control panel, personalization, PC specs and help.
This is all i can say about Windows 8, yes i have it with XP and 7 and I have maked a short video showing why i like it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDQhU...=results_video
So will you get it? I have areledy do it!

    Well,i personally think that windows 8 is crap.I don't like the Metro interface.Every game and program installed MUST have a security certificate (Yes,even Minecraft).The Windows 8 is the worst windows ever made (Excluding windows Vista.Even Win XP is better than vista and 8).If microsoft continues making crappy windows i'm going to switch to Mac.
    oh and i will use Windows XP and Win 7 for all eternity!

    I must agree with testmachine, but its only because I am biased towards utilitarian looks and functionality.

    Windows 8 is IMO the best OS to ever come out for one simple reason, its going to open the door for a new OS. M$ is writing their self out of the consumer desktop market. They are not stupid, the entire reason 80% of the world started to use computers was for networking. You know , email, internet, chat, ect... Hell, my phone does this so why buy a computer? Think about it, the only market left will be gamers and productive people. There is no need to buy a computer to check and go and that is what the large percentage of users use it for. M$ knows this and knows they need that portable market like now. Their legacy is the only thing they have to show. Now, knock heads with android or apple, go a head I dare you M$...

    Not to mention OS's in the cloud like chromium are the next gen. Checking in to your OS from anywhere? Having your programs on a goggle server. Simplicity is where people want to go. Hell no need for a computer then, just get a pad. M$ is done and windows 8 was only a way to get win7 users to get mobile in hopes to change there paradigm. Why do you think it was only 40 bucks... Once m$ moves aside a new OS will move in. Compare windows 8 to Ubuntu, neither run our emulators but Linux does have many emulators to choose from that work.

    Dont get me wrong I love windows I just hate their concepts. OS's need to be free and configurable. M$ has done everything to divert from that. There is only one reason to use M$ OS's, its the norm. Everyone knows what software does what. In the linux world its like pulling teeth to find a nice user friendly app. So people give up and switch back. Well the more non linux users that use it, the more easier it will become as there is now a need.

    They have no need to 8 is crappy enough. At the moment there is no need to stop using win7. once that days comes its time to make your switch.

    I'm still using XP with Windows 7 Ultimate.I hesitated to use Vista because it's buggy as hell.I'm just sad because Microsoft will end legacy support for Windows XP in 2014,but it will still be usable.Won't it?
  14. ulaoulao's Avatar
    yeah as long as you dont need drivers for anything new. In 2014 companies no longer have to make xp drivers.
