I can't believe all the grumblers in here...have you guy's even really used windows 8?
I dual boot 7 and 8...I have to use 7 for some things so I do have to go back and forth.
8 has shown me it's faster to use, not just because it is physically faster (and it is faster than 7)....
but I have found the interface to be faster to use too.
Now that I've used the metro and learned how to get to all the needed places to go while managing a pc...when I go back to 7 I'm not liking the old start menu button so much anymore.
The new windows 8 get's me to where I need to go faster with less clicks, and as time goes on I'll be able to dial it in even better.
I've found it alot easier to get to computer controls and file properties. And the Task Manager is extremely useful.
I will have to download even less 3rd party tools then I did with 7...and 7 reduced the number of 3rd party tool needs alot over xp where I had massive amounts of 3rd party computer management tools.
It's getting way better folks.
and people wanting xp...man...what a dinosaur...you really like it's start menu with it's drop down lists and looking around all the long lists of text? and the xp desktop with all those icons scattered all over....xp people should at least upgrade to 7 as it's so much cooler...and windows 8 is an improvement over that.
I do still have an xp machine I use for another purpose...so I do have to use it and sure do notice the differences.
lol...and 8 is FASTER....in everything...on the same hardware....I thought that's what we all wanted over all these years of tweaking....I didn't do much tweaking with 7...to tell you the truth I don't miss the tweaking...man I butchered so many installs of xp trying to get it to run faster. And my xp machine is very fast for what I use it for. I tend to keep my machines lean and healthy.
I say all that while being picky as heck...and if I didn't find it easier to use I wouldn't have said so.
