No, no, it's really not. I have the official enterprise release and we've had 'tablets' for a good month now. Win8 is hard to navigate and requires a complete relearning of how to operate windows with their new metro UI. But please, teach my 3000+ user's how to use metro's new interface when they can barely operate Win7 as it currently is. I don't have the time, or the money to waste in redoing everything that currently works simply because it looks different. Yes, there are server optomizations and what not, but in any corp you are limited by this amazing thing called a budget.

It took me all of 60 seconds to learn how metro worked and how to avoid using it. Is it really so complicated as to warrant staying with an older OS?

I'm not saying metro is great or anything, I honestly dislike it, a lot. But, that wouldn't stop me from using Windows 8, considering how easy it is to avoid using metro, and with the optimizations made in Windows 8 it seems to me like the benefits outweigh the downsides.

I'm suddenly reminded of the countless threads of Vista hate 4+ years ago when it came out, tons of people saying XP was so much better. Vista wasn't perfect, but it was much nicer than the 7 year old OS it was replacing, the driver problems were not Microsoft's fault, Vista's only real problem is that it was resource heavy, which is the main thing that was changed with Windows 7. Windows 7 is basically Vista SP3, and Windows 8 is basically Windows 7 + Metro. Not worth freaking out about IMO, but that won't stop half of OCN from doing so anyway, and then in 2 years half of everyone here will be using it and saying it's no big deal.

I quite like "Metro" I don't use it much but when I do use it it's fair better than anything unmodded Windows 7 has to offer. I don't miss the start button either, in fact Microsoft have added something better than the start button and start menu.
Warning: Windows 8! (Click to show)



If you don't think Windows 8 is worth the $60 then don't get it. No one is going to force you to get it.

BTW I have noticed boot times are a lot quicker and games perform better than in W7

The constant whining in this thread and others makes me feel sad for humanity.

Who actually believes the start menu increases productivity? The only people I know who use the start menu to open up their programs or documents are people over the age of 60. And one member said it brilliantly:

This coming from a community that would go through the process of custom building a PC, dealing with driver versions and bugs, just to play their games at a few more FPS in some cases. But it's an inconvenience to have to click just once during a boot of your machine.

so.....i guess nobody realizes that hitting the windows key in Win 8 brings you right to the desktop....I dont mind the missing star menu, and welcome the "metro" look of Win8. I have been using this since the first public release version, and havent even booted into my Windows 7 drive since. All of my games and current activities work perfectly in the Windows 8 interface and after messing around with the tiles, I was able to create some neat shortcuts and clean it up so I look forward to its full release. My computers performance as increased by a lot and after installing multiple games, and running this daily I havent had any issues. The only problem I ever had was driver issues with my graphics card in the begining (which I had with windows 7 when it was first beta) but now havent had trouble.

I like the new OS but as for microsoft trying to have "more control" over the user.....that worries me....I guess they want to be Apple....

Yes, it does! My opinion does make a difference, and I must state on a public forum for everyone to hear! Because I as a customer, by boycotting this window version, will make a major impact on microsofts plans! Microsofts professional plans are all bullcrap! I am smarter and I am the consumer! Those damn billionaire businessmen don't know jack about us! Screw them! I will be different, not a mindless sheep buying new Microsoft systems! I will stick to my beloved Window 7 with my great start menu!

They dare touch my beloved feature of desktop boot? Please, do you know the minutes I save per year.Just by having to spend that 0.5 seconds? It makes a big difference! Don't you dare remove that feature of mines! The companies trying to control us! We will not stand by these mindless sheeps, we will stand by our great window 7! Our beloved window 7 shall never be touched or tainted by a company such as microsoft, even though they made it! They have corrupted under the influence of money!

They knew enough about "us" to become "damn billionaire businessmen" in the first place. Whether you like it or not I think W8 is going to be huge with the "average" user.

EDIT: I'm not sure if that second bit is serious or not but either way, sigged biggrin.gif

People are making a big deal out of nothing.

MS intentionally making it harder for people to opt out of Metro isn't "nothing".








And also, "one click away" is one click too many". I certainly can't be bothered with it.

Has anyone done an "in-place" upgrade from W7 to W8? By in-place I mean without formatting and losing your applications. I've read that you can upgrade to W8 and your applications can finally be truly transferred over.
