quote: It's childishly simple to modify Win 8 to look and act just like Win 7, or even XP for that matter, while retaining the key benefits...
quote: I still have not one one single reason why you drones hate Windows 8
quote: you claim to have spent huge amounts of time using it but haven't seemed to figure out even the most simplest of tasks.
quote: Wow the ego's on this site are insane.
quote: It's not worth posting genuine opinions with reasoning here.
quote: I wouldn't do it. I've gone to the trouble in the past to post my detailed reviews/opinions of my own only to be repeatedly dumped on, called ignorant, a dinosaur, an idiot, a hater, or any other number of labels tacked on so the poster can flippantly blow off my view entirely as irrelevant in as few words as possible. It's not worth posting genuine opinions with reasoning here. Barbs are far more common and anything else gets downvoted.
quote: The benefits I have seen in Win8 ( faster boot ) is not worth the investment in time it will take to relearn how to do simple tasks like launch two separate apps side by side.
quote: I boot my computer up in Win8 and had my wife try it, I think she represents the knowledge of the vast majority of normal users, after about 3 minutes of clicking around she told me to get her back on Win7, she hated it.
quote: In the mean time I will continue to play with and try to learn Win8, not because I like it more then Win7 but because I am going to be getting calls from friends and family on how to use Win8 as I am the go to person for computer questions.
quote: And then ignore Metro. For eternity.
quote: Now you’ll get folks trying to open a pdf and they’re taken to some weird full screen program, or they try to open a picture and again are taken to some metro app, and they’ll think, “What is this? How did I get here?” And most damning of all, “How do I get out and back to what I’m familiar with?” After a time they’ll figure out how to open pdf’s in Reader on the desktop, and how to view pictures in a window,
quote: Well, that’s a bad sign. I installed 8 in March on my test rig, and at my wife’s request removed it last week to put 7 back on. Why would she or anyone else want to learn this stuff when it isn’t an improvement? Because it’s new and different?
quote: missed the announcement that you were elected the official opinion maker
quote: So at least two people in this thread are completely ignorant on Windows 8.
quote: Don't be afraid of Windows 8. If you don't like using Metro, you really don't have to beyond landing in the tile screen when you boot up; you can think of it as a big, stylish app drawer.
quote: Some people legitimately will just 'not like' the difference, but a majority of those people (think 8 out of 10) simply oppose change regardless of whether its better or worse.
