People still hate Windows 8, and I still have pretty much no problem with it. I've had a couple minor issues, but nothing that jumped out at me and screamed "this OS sucks!"

Well, aside from all the people around here, anyway. :P

I use Windows 8 at home and 7 at work. Both work just fine, and I have no complaints about either.

I haven't upgraded to Windows 8 and still use Windows 7 but after using Windows 8 on my dad's computer, I have to say it's a great OS. IMO, it doesn't deserve as much hate as it got. I'm thinking about upgrading but Windows 9 will be here before you know it so that is when I will probably upgrade again. Waiting for more info on Windows 9, as there isn't much information out there about it yet.

It's change! Change is bad! Bad bad bad! No one should ever adapt to change!


Most corporations, and indeed, most people think that there has to be something "new" every year, even if everything is working perfectly - and even if what is currently being used hasn't been developed to it's full capability.

This leads to half-developed architectures being replaced with half-developed architectures in an endless cycle, fueled by the ignorant ideology of - change for changes' sake.

You still have the option to create a local account.

Windows 8 is fine. I would definitely use it if I had a license.
