[Verge] Microsoft reportedly working to block apps that re-enable the Windows 8 Start button - Page 29

post #281 of 348
I just downloaded windows 8 consumer preview to check it out and I have to say I have never hated anything more in my entire life. I can't deny that it is unbelievably fast. However it took me 5min and a google search just to shutdown windows 8.

I'm soooooo not buying windows 8.

Now Apple doesn't seems so bad.

Windows 8 is like having a car with a Ferrari motor and a KIA Metro body with an ugly paint job.
It will take a good used car salesman like Steve Jobs to sell this 'hunk-o-junk'
Of course Jobs was doing the opposite, junk on the inside, pretty on the outside....

That is true, but since the market is slowly moving to SSDs and on OCN even more of us use them. Having TRIM support is kinda handy.

I fail to see what running a quad-core Intel CPU has to do with using an SSD or not. File access time has absolutely nothing to do with the CPU.

He's talking about making a Ram drive for his pagefile. With 16GB of ram, he can make a 8GB ram drive and still have 8GB of ram. With Quad Channel, he'll be able to run it with little to no bottlenecking... at least theoretically because I have no experience with this sort of thing. But it makes sense.

Seems like more trouble than it's worth. We're talking fractions of a millisecond here. But to each their own.
