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.


Oh. It's that anti-Microsoft guy that's always complaining about their "monopoly".

Yes that's exactly what it's like. Gamers seriously are the bottom of the barrel

Lies. Microsoft has a monopoly on the OS market.

There is only Windows.

The only really bad thing about W8 is its UI, but that's something you can modify or get used to. It's not a big deal.

Most -but not all- other complaints are BS or have nothing to do with W8 itself.

Being fair, any government that doesn't develop its own operating system (or, at the very least, a customized version of one) is asking to be hacked.
