MS is starting to scare me with windows 8. So far not impressed. The exact second gaming is more supported by Linux I'll be moving from Windows entirely. If it wasn't for the lack of gaming support I would have already done so after Vista..
Why is it that they even care? so what some people want their start button. Dose this matter? why do the need to block it? silly control freaks are silly. If I wanted that kind of treatment I would be using a Mac.
Windows Vista, with major UI changes that were not properly thought out = fail.
Windows Vista Business, which is not a superset of Windows Vista Home Premium = fail (offer Windows 8 Pro for $15 to Windows 7 PC buyers in the coming months when it doesn't come with Media Center, the Start Button option, the ability to playback DVD's and Aero ? Are they really calling this an upgrade ? Customers will essentially be paying to lose options and have to spend either even more money or more time finding applications to give them the same functionality.).
The Mohave experiment, where Microsoft tried, fruitlessly, to try to convince people that Windows Vista wan't that bad = yes, great sucess in the experiment itself, fail in terms of market, which is what matters.
And all this talk about legacy code and the desktop being the past and desktop applications being the past and making the next version of Visual Studio only free to work for Metro apps. Did desktops suddenly become obsolete and Windows 7 is not the best selling desktop OS of all time ?
But then again I never really understood why this man runs the company in the first place.
Fun to watch as long as he isn't the CEO. Which he wasn't back then. Edited by tpi2007 - 5/31/12 at 8:47am
they arent removing advanced tweaking via regedit.th only remove stuff that should have been removed a long while ago .i got one concern its java acceleration .in w7 java acc. only work in non aero ui so i hope this time with metro they fixed this.no start i dont care lol i like the k.i.s.s rule.just put everything a la live essential(optional)and le me chose what goes in my os
sadly the main issue is gaming.but?is w8 this bad tweak wise?why?check mtu everybody say put it at 1500.yet if i tweak it via ping i ll end up in the 14xx.depend also on the router overhead.and if you let it break mtu appart it take more ressource and lot of site have issue with broken appart mtu(hack scare!with good reason!
