Windows 8 fail? - Page 3

post #21 of 57
Honestly i hate windows 8 doesn't feel like windows feels and i hate how if i hit what looks to be start menu i get kicked to that dam page of random crap of icons for Facebook and what not. (sorry i don't know what its called) I think Linux was easier to figure out than win 8 just feels better to use than win 8 and i will not support them at all but i will however support win 7 and XP ^-^. first time i used Linux i built a server with a GUI with Debian then i got into Linux.

Few things
1. Note the use of the word *developer*
2. This is not even a beta release, meaning it is not even ready for beta testing yet- its like linux at this point.
3. The Metro UI is not finished and can be disabled
4. To think that apple or linux is competition is laughable Linux stays around 1% and apple hovers around and mostly below 10%. In fact the only reason apple even exists is because Microsoft was too successful and they had a monopoly. All of apple's latest success has been around their phone and their Ipon i mean ipad. Apple is just a super expensive version of linux and a fad. And like Steve Jobs the apple fad will die

I tried it as a virtual machine and hated it. Decided to try on my laptop as full sole install. Still didn't like it, I just hate the tiled start menu.

I think ill skip windows 8, unless they let me default the entire UI to a windows 7 look, I dont want there metro look, I dont want my startmenu as my desktop i like clicking start and having the sidebar popup, while admiring the USS Enterprise. So unless they do this, I'll just skip it, I made a mistake once and bought Vista never again lol

I gave up on Windows awhile ago. I used to use it exclusively, then started using Arch Linux as my main and Windows 7 as a JIC for a certain program, and the last time it messed up and I had to reimage it, I gave up. Datamined the drive, wiped it, and that was that. I also did not like the direction Microsoft is going with Windows 8. Now I'm on FreeBSD and if I need Windows for anything (think tax software), I got a VM for it.

1. We know this.
2. It's nothing like Linux, seeing as Linux has several complete operating systems that are completely free, and always will be. Most of which run far better than Windows ever will. (Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora...)
3. Yes it can be disabled. But once it is disabled... You have *GASP!* Windows 7!
4. Linux has no sales figures to base it on. Not to mention, they have many ports out at the same time. If you want to get technical... Servers all over the world also run Unix/Linux, as well as cash registers, ATM's, lottery machines and almost anything else that needs to have as close to 100% uptime as possible.

Apple makes good products. The Ipod and Ipad are both still the top of the market in their category, despite the high prices. Mac computers are simply too expensive for the average computer consumer. If they were to lower the prices to compete with PC's, they would match or beat them in sales.

On top of all of that... Microsoft would not even exist if Bill Gates wasn't a thief.

As of now I am running Linux Mint, Ubuntu and Win 7. Win 7 is solely for gaming. Mint is just there to toy with, and Ubuntu is my main OS.

I wish it was easier to switch e.g. press a few buttons with out reboot and windows/mac is running along side Linux and you can swap via the click of a button...

No, not much. Between university (CS major), work (32+ hours as IT), girlfriend (24/7 lol), and bills (I own a home, car, cell, internet, water, electric, etc.), I don't have time lol. I just watch Netflix. I play Skyrim and the like, but most of those games can be played on Wine. I lost interest in intense gaming awhile ago, I dunno why. Games just cannot hold my interest longer than an hour at most. frown.gif

Yeah, Microsoft took quite a bit of competing stuff, like Active Directory from Novell, the whole IBM thing of course, and also, something else I cannot remember from IBM. Something to do with lan networking or something. And probably more stuff LOL. It's the name of the game, I guess.
