Vista on launch was pretty bad imho. I have networked computers and Vista had some bad network bugs that slowed file transfers. It was poorly optimized, so that was why many just stayed with XP or switched to Server 2008. I suppose it is better once you had 4GB of ram, 7200 rpm hard drives, and SP3.

I really hope we have the option in the install or after install to not have/use Metro. It should stay on their MP3/Phone OS'.

Crap can not describe how bad ME was. Vista is a golden child compared to ME. They should not be compared at all.

The only thing I like about Windows 8 so far is that the image preview (in file explorer) takes the image's EXIF orientation data into consideration and rotates the image accordingly.

More I hear about windows 8 the more I like it
post #88 of 102
Oh good, it's THIS thread again.

Have any of you even tried the start screen? I've been using Windows 8 for months now, and the start screen is just as effective as the old start menu. It doesn't take any more clicks or gestures to get to anything you need. Everything is organized in the exact same way; the ONLY difference is that more information can fit on the screen at one time. It is NOT designed purely for touch screens. It works PERFECTLY FINE with a keyboard and mouse.

PLEASE try the goddamned OS before you act like the world is ending because of a slight UI change.

Yea I got no issues with it so far and actually like it. I've got it running on my desktop and laptop. It's got a few quirks and explorer crashes pretty frequently but I'm over it.
