If Windows 8 is so good how come both Microsoft and Sony are using Windows 7?

I've used windows8 for awhile and can safely confirm its really as bad as people claim it is.

I usually use my pc for gaming with a i7 3770k gtx 780 and 8 gb ddr3 2400. Also a ssd samsung 840 pro.

I also do frame analysis with the games I play and stutter detection. Windows are configured with system restore off, hibernation off, windows defender off, no antivirus, no windows search, superfetch prefetch off, power link management off on hdd. Dipm and hipm active. Also for extensive testing, desktop aero effects are totally off to give fair trade. No anti virus installed also.

Between windows 7 64 bit and windows 8 64 bit. Both Oem upgraded, drivers up to date.

Window 7 64 bit wins on both ssd benchmarks and game performance. Less stutter, more fps, better gameplay quality.

Windows 7 ssd test

Samsung 840 pro 256

Seq read 560
Seq write 536
Random write 90000 to 90106
Random read 98467 to sometimes 99102

Windows 8

Seq red 542 to 550
Seq write 472 to 519
Random write. 73456 to 88923
Random write 98245 to 98552

With windows 8 the system restore needs to be disabled in gpedit also because it comes back on automatically.

Avoid windows 8 its the next vista.


It wasn't even the stuttering it causes. But the fact that almost every old game I tried to play on it would crash or not work or would have weird crazy errors. Then to add insult to injury even "drivers" that said they supported it still had bugs.

This is even ignoring the horrible awful interface that was mandatory to remove when you install it.

I put up with Window 8 for 6-7 months, till it went so buggy I had to reformat. Then the installation disc bugged out twice on me. At that point I went and grabbed my old Windows 7 pro again. Was best decision I ever made. Didn't even care I wasted $80 on Windows 8.


I also tried to bear with it myself but gave up

No business in their right mind would set themselves up with Windows 8, It's a trash OS and should only be considered for tablets.

Are people still hating on Windows 8 because of the UI?


That and misinformation and ignorance. Happens with every new Windows release.

No issues here. *shrug*

Plenty of shortcuts and little things I enjoy about it. Its not a drastic change by any means.

Keep the hate train going, seems it might be running out of steam.


Defending Microsoft is like defending a rapist who got a woman pregnant. I don't know how people can defend Microsoft.

Yes people use Windows 8 because it's shoved down the consumers throats and the consumers have little choice on the matter. Microsoft (thanks to copyright law) makes it even difficult to downgrade from 8 to 7. I say if Microsoft is losing money because of Windows 8 the better.
