Not really bothered, change is change, Like someone said before the glass look is knocking on a bit now. They could have done a bit better though, now it feels like going back to xp tongue.gif

Can Windows 8 be fully utilized on a PC without a keyboard?

I sometimes wash my keyboard (liquid spills,dust, dead skin,etc..) and while it dries, I use the on-screen keyboard in windows 7 (or win xp) while my hardware keyboard dries out.

How do you open the "On-Screen Keyboard" in windows 8, without a keyboard?

Lets move back to reality here. Windows 8 requires more clicks, more transitions, more swiping around your mouse like a cow trying to swat away flys with it's tail, just to do what takes 1-2 clicks in a properly set up windows 7, Vista, or even XP desktop. I'm sorry you never realized the potential you had in previous versions of windows, but you have no one to blame but yourself.
Like it or not, Windows 3.1 through 7 were designed with a mouse and keyboard in mind. Windows 8 was designed for a touch screen device being operated by one of the idiots who actually thought ribbon in MS office was an improvement. It shows.
Seriously, your just making an ass of yourself now. I can promise you this I have spent more time with each OS then you have with a single one. Vista and 7's traditional start menu takes so much more time clicking and scrolling to find an application, then it takes me to click my start menu, and click the application I want. Again your blaming your own incompetence on others. You seem like the type who thinks hes always right, especially when you are very wrong. You keep contradiction yourself and falling face first over your own posts. Also don't be calling me an idiot, reported.

It still boggles my mind that people don't realize that Windows 8 is a mobile platform.
Thats exactly why it shouldnt be on a desktop, if you read my post right.

You don't get it, Windows 8 isn't made to be installed on a Desktop. Tho im sure you will see dozens of them with it pre-installed. Why should Microsoft lose out on the millions of dollars due to a handful of people complaining? lachen.gif

I own every Windows OS ever made. I love the fact you ultimately put the blame on me for your incompetence at using Windows 8. If you suck at using Windows 8 then don't use it. I have ran XP, Vista, 7, and 8 long enough to know there is a upper hand to using 8. There is no reason for me to lie about how well Metro works for me. The removal of the old traditional start menu was a god send from heaven. That was one of the major reasons for slowing Windows Vista/7 productivity down.

Wrong. Windows Classic is not there for compatibility reasons it's an option.

Lol, why would MS lose out if they kept Aero, start menu and allowed the removal of Metro on desktops? Surely making those "handful (lachen.gif, it's more than that) of people to be happy would increase sales.

And also, since when did Windows 7 become free? Supplying any Windows OS to OEM's nets them money.

Honestly, you are fighting a losing battle here and completely clutching at straws.

Windows 8 is NOT a mobile-only OS, which is why it comes in an x86 variation despite there being an extremely thin number of x86 tablets available. Which is why the consumer previews and sucha re all x86 previews. Everyone I've spoken to understands the reasons for Metro but doesn't want it on a Desktop.

Because its useless bulk added to the operating system that kills battery life. And yes there is only a handful of people complaining (I call them whine _ _ _ 's). No one said Windows was free, Windows supply's the OS to OEM's because it reals in Microsoft more money, how do you not understand this? Your fighting on the losing side of the battle, clutching at straws (notice how much you complained in the past few pages).
lachen.gif Oh man thats hilarious. I run windows 7 with an aero theme on my netbook with no difference in performance or battery life. Im very certain that if my petty netbook can run aero without having it bulked up and drained battery life, im sure a laptop will have no problem running it. Unless of course theres a problem on my user end. rolleyes.gif
