I don't think you take much of anything seriously.
My health won't allow me to. :ohwell:

Enough about me though.. Tell me more about how awesome this new O/S from Microsoft is! Tell me more about how screwed up my life will be if I don't make the switch!

Not true. Going from OSX to XP made me do a LOT of thinking. But the hard work paid off. Hell I'm still learning!
When I try to use an Osx which is mostly unfamiliar I just feel lost. I don't get a this is an annoying gui feeling. In windows 8 I got familiar but could not shake the this is annoying feeling.

Not from what I have seen first hand it suck , Really who thought of this? It is shit for and OS for a computer. This is tablet/phone OS. Looks like crap the UI has been totally screwed up. The little things that make us love and hate it are all there. You do not have to buy it and I am not going to. MS can put out any thing they like, If I do not like it I will not buy it. I do not even own a dumb phone or any table computers. No I can do without all that crap.
Would you mind elaborating on the hardware/Windows 8 version? Otherwise you just sound like Gabe Newell and his childish explanation of why he thinks Windows 8 is bad :laugh:

No, I think I'll wait for Microsoft to learn from their mistake and implement a proper "classic" interface... Which they will do, I have no doubt.
I honestly don't see MS changing their attitude about the interface, no matter how much backlash they get from enthusiasts. Consumers will love Windows 8, and that's what MS is aiming for right now. Plus it works with their vision on how how Windows Phone will interact with Windows 8.

I have had mixed experiences with Window's 8. Especially regarding stability it particular applications(games). Once I updated my bios to a more W8 friendly update, things got alot more stable...

Just Uganda?

Come on now you have to do more than that if you want to sell it to me.


(Honestly I haven't taken any notice of anything here. I will only not get Windows 8 on one factor. And that is price. If the price is right I see no reason not to upgrade.)

So where is our enthusiast Os. Thats why I hope gaming takes off on linux. I really like how you can find a customized linux distro for your needs. Want a lightweight Os for gaming, use X. Need a super secure Os, use Y. Need something so easy your great grandmother can use it, use Z.

Uganda... thats it... Can I get a bit more world peace? Microsoft will also have some major cashflow coming in too.

Personally I'm not feeling hindered by Windows 8 at all, so I'm not exactly what what makes Windows 7 more of an enthusiast OS than Windows 8. If anything, considering Windows 8 is less resource intensive I would think it would be better for enthusiasts to use. But I digress, with Windows 8 it's going to come down to personal opinion about the GUI that will make people switch/not switch.

I'm sorry. I thought the latest hipster place for people to give a crap about was Uganda. Used to be Dafur and before that Somalia. Where is it now? Well doesn't matter. Windows 8 will fix it.

Don't let them fool you. They will ALL switch. They just have to hate it because its the "bad" cycle of the MS OS machine. Their sheeple bones won't let them do otherwise.

Well that's disappointing. Odd so many people were adamant they got a notable frame rate boost after switching to 8. Perhaps RTM is slower or their 7 installs were on older drivers.

I don't feel windows 7 is an enthusiast Os. It also is a one size fits all Os. Windows 8 is less resource intensive. It ran very well on my laptop. Windows 8 does even better at fitting all sizes. Windows is just really the only option for gamers. I want a selection of Os's to choose from so I can decide which one works best for my needs. It must also have the software compatibility of windows.

I bet thier old installs were cluttered. You know how it is. Fresh install of any OS makes things better.

I think "enthusiasts" who complain about a ui that takes less then 1 min to get used to(for me and my gf), if you're half smart is quite silly, sense when do hardware and gaming enthusiasts/"power users" care about the ui of the OS if you're treating it like a game loader or w.e.

You're reading the graph wrong, Windows seven is faster in both those games.

The 10 fps difference is going from a 7970 to a 680 :toast:

The new gui? Yeah that's the thing that pops up every time I start the computer, I see it for all of 10 seconds before pushing the desktop button.
I use win8 just the same as I used win7, but then again I never used the start menu and have always used a launcher so the start button being gone is just a plus for me, more space on the taskbar :)

I will probably never use metro or whatever they want to call it now for more than a few minutes here and there, it really doesn't work too good on 3 monitors, but besides that, everything else is better than it was in 7. The new task manager is lovely and being able to have a taskbar on all 3 monitors without a third party app is also nice even though it sucks that you can't pin programs to any taskbar except the main one.

Can't say much about the performance in games since I rarely look at how many fps I get (as long as I don't see it stutter it's all good) but the memory usage is definitely better than win7 and startup/sleep/shutdown times are wonderful.

am i the only one who likes the GUI?
I could take it or leave it, it didn't take much to get used to it, i do like big icon representations to find my programs quickly. I mean it was mostly learning new habits i didn't feel hindered by it, really i'd take windows 8 over windows 7 if i was getting a new os but i don't feel like spending money to get windows 8 for slightly updated things, although i did like the expansion admin tools etc.

If i build a new system though i'd get windows 8 which is likely my personal play computer is 2 years old now.

Thank you very much for this. It's exactly what I have been waiting to see.. Windows 8.. t^^t.. I figured they'd make some shoddy OS this time and it looks like they did..
If you can't increase performance then the os is garbage. That's what they get for making a tablet os for REAL computers.. Tablets are toys.. PCs are for big boys..

Nope,join our little club and you'll find others who like it. Personally I think it's a clean and organized look.



So what? Most of my friends hate the iPhone, doesn't seem to have hurt it's popularity.
I have an awful lot of friends and associates :laugh:

And they are a rather varied bunch of folk! Some don't care for tech at all, some are Apple lovers, others enjoy using it but don't really go all out.

It's a nice bunch! and it's a large enough set of people to be considered a mini trial :laugh:
