you have a $1500 PC and you hate multi-tasking, the W8 is great for you.
That's actually where it works BEST for me, but I use multiple monitors. And so when I boot up, I have access to the desktop AT THE SAME TIME as the silly start screen that so many complain about.

and then..and then if you customize the start screen tiles to the size you like and orientation that works best for you, it works very well. Imagine that....customization.

Well,
I finally installed Win8.1.
What you say is true, but only if I want all this icons to be on my desk. I do not have any action, I have windows(real ones) to see the weather, so those small app/tiles are totally useless for me.
I like empty screen. My Chrome window has usually 30-50 tabs, plus other applications.
While I am sure that underlying technologie is better that the one from Win 7, I have something that Win7 gives me that Win8/Win8.1 doesn't. It's a choice!

My desktop should look like the way I want it to be or need to be. Not the way MS thinks it should be.
OS is platform to facilitate the use of apps that I need to make some money for living. If it is there to make it harder or let's say, more complicated, then I don't like it and can't agree with that.
And that' what most of the business will tell you. For some of us, PC is actually a tool to work and make living, not to watch colorful tiles on our screen.
Thanks for reading.

i quite like 8.1 on my laptop as well as my desktop. somehow feels a bit more fluid than win7 in some ways.
win8 was an abomination though.

I installed win 8.1 on my desktop. I gave it 6 months and I reverted back to win 7. Windows 7 is just better hands down. Ran win7 on laptop ( Still running it too) while win8.1 was on desktop.
I find windows 8.1 not very user friendly is all. Just too much fluff no substance.

The only people i've seen struggle to use Win8/8.1 are the same people that could barely use Windows 7.

Well that maybe your take on it But that is just not the case. Just because an OS comes out DOES not mean it is automatically the best. there are many examples from windows that would tell you this just 2 that come to mind are win 98, windows 2000, Windows NT, windows Vista! And to add one more to that LIST will be Windows 8 oops that was more than 2!. Screw all the bs it looks like crap like a 3 year old designed it. I think it is a dumbing DOWN of the software and a sad attempt at using pictographic universal language. Some see this I know I do. The ones that do not attempt to justify this new OS by saying things like "People are struggling" and "they could barely use " Power Bully statements is all this is.
So is windows 8 or 8.1 worth it? NO not at all. is see no use in this sad attempt at a OS. This will be reflected in the next OS to come. And also should have been a clue in the recent push to get windows 8.1 out! LMFAO!!!

I never said anything about it being the best, so idk where you pulled that one from.

You call it a "Power Bully" statement, I call it "what i see at work".

If 8/8.1 is a sad attempt at an OS, then so is Windows 7. 8 is not so tragically different than 7 that someone who knows their way around one can't find their way around another.

Still relevant IMHO. Really Windows 8 and 8.1 are for folks wanting the NEW shinny thing in the room nothing more. and it is a debacle IMHO. Looks like the dumbing of people to me.
I will stick with windows 7 till some thing intelligent come out again from MS.

My new laptop (CyberpowerPC Fangbook Evo HX6-110) came with Windows 8.1 and I'm perfectly fine with it. With a Mushkin Atlas 240GB mSATA SSD that I added, it reaches the login screen in under 10 seconds from power on, and it's pretty snappy. I spend <1% of my time on the Start screen, and if I need something I just press <Windows key + S> and start typing. Still have 7 on my main desktop but am using the laptop most of the time now, nothing really wrong with the desktop but I need to reformat it soon, and will probably wait for Windows 8.2 or whatever the next update is.

Hey Goodman, thank you for calling me troll! :) You know, people do search, find the forum, read the things and then they feel like that want to give their opinion. That's me. I hate trolls.

Now back to the subject, well my biggest problem is luck of choice, if I want metro UI or not. I prefer "old way", as it was on Windows 7 and before. Metro just doesn't work for me, I tried. And I am objective. It might work for so much others, and good for them. I would like that in Windows 8/8.1 there easy founded option that can bring standard "desktop" interface back. And I see i am not alone wanting this.

Been using 8.1 for months now, only had 1 bsod in that time. I never even see the tile Metro ui, i have disabled it, i use win 8.1 just like i did win 7. I do like win 8 though, only problem is drivers for some older stuff which would work on 7 don't on 8.1, but no biggie.

The main reason I installed win 8.1 is because BF4 apparently runs better on it.

I am using Start is back.

In my book, an OS which needs 3rd party programs to be used and to work properly (Classic Shell, Gadgets back, Start, No Metro, etc) is A BAD OS.
That's all.

I do not know why they just do not put it back ala win 7, and be done with it. it is what the users want. All they have done is create a new market for start menu replacement programs.

I use windows 8.1 without any 3rd party programs and it works properly. I'm sure you knew that though. Couldn't resist the urge to troll now could we.

When did mr. Ballmer ever do something that user's want? :))) Just look of all the mess in his mandate. Windows Visa, Windwos RT, Zune, Xbone's "special features", etc, etc

In conclusion stick with windows 7. Windows 8 is a bad OS and needs to die just like windows 2000 did!

Well when some thing is as bad as it really is then it is crammed down the necks of the consumer as the next big thing I would say YES!
Since when does a company not act as if their product is the next big thing? It's called Marketing. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/marketing

Also, just because YOU ( <-- keyword here ) don't like something doesn't make it bad. That's called an opinion. Typically opinions are stated like "I think Windows 8 is bad." An example of an incorrectly stated opinion would be "Windows 8 is bad."

Since when does a company not act as if their product is the next big thing? It's called Marketing. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/marketing

Also, just because YOU ( <-- keyword here ) don't like something doesn't make it bad. That's called an opinion. Typically opinions are stated like "I think Windows 8 is bad." An example of an incorrectly stated opinion would be "Windows 8 is bad."
Since when did there marketing equate into the next big thing? See you have it wrong, You may like it and it may very well be the next big thing FOR you, But I am not going to buy into there marketing, See I let there product speak for them not there mouth piece they put in front of a camera.
Again you are wrong. Windows 8 is a BAD OS. Many people agree there for we will NOT buy it, We will however wait and hope that the Interface will once again return and not look so fing retarded! And YET the GUI and user interface is RETARDED! But then again the pictographic language is so bad I loose IQ points just looking at it! Bring back the Intelligence QUOTA!

Except that if a person doesn't agree with your views you call it a troll right away, right? ;)
Obviously. You make troll statements you get called a troll. :rolleyes:

"In my book, an OS which needs 3rd party programs to be used and to work properly (Classic Shell, Gadgets back, Start, No Metro, etc) is A BAD OS.
That's all."

Sure it can be a bad OS in your book. Nothing wrong with that. Making a false statement such as "(Windows 8) needs 3rd party programs to be used and to work properly" is trolling.

NONE at all they NEW that they had a crap OS that looked like some fing 5 year old designed it. LMAO. Oh well some like some do not. I will wait as I hear windows 8.2 is coming out SOON! LMFAO! SUCKERS!
