Another common comment. Care to quantify it? Why? What exactly is it you would see in service pack 1 that is not floating your boat in this current release? Or are you just repeating what you saw someone else post?

I'll wait for windows 9 instead. A tablet based user interface is never going to work on home desktops. I don't care about touchscreen moniters and waving my hands in front of a motion sensoring device.

Just keep it simple next time microsoft.

Well, in the past the first release of an OS is rushed, or incomplete. As in the OS is buggy, has error's and that sort of thing. I alway's tell people that first release of OS is like a Paid Beta Test. You pay and get beta software.

Who know's there might be a MASSIVE security bug that needs patching.

On top of that, windows 7 is a pretty well oiled machine. Almost all problem's I have encounted, or had to solve where user error in origin. Win7 works pretty darn well.

As a consumer it is in your best interest to let the lemmings beta test this new OS before switching.

I have just built a new gaming rig and needed an operating system so I bought windows 8. Must say I absolutely love the operating system. It is very cool ans has no problems. I can almost garuantee anyone who talks bad about windows 8 has not even tried the official release version. Because I have used the beta and it is far beyond the beta version. Overall performance is fast. I was playing bf3 last night on ultra settings getting 120 fps. I can understand if your not a fan of the new metro style Microsoft has put into windows 8, but they did and they will never go back so deal with it. Give things a chance. I give windows 8 a 5 star

This is laughable really. Was Windows 7 a buggy mess? Has anyone said that Windows 8 is a buggy mess? No, quite the contrary infact. Lemmings were the creatures that failed to evolve and ultimately became extinct. So, in this instance, who exactly is the lemming wink.gif

How is this in any way a tablet operating system apart from the fact that the start screen is the same across all MS's latest platforms?
post #238 of 711
come on give credit to user!gees ,try some didnt test it!but when i see a thing that is marginally faster then my unit stock only because window took the speedguide.net tweak and included them by default?
my view has nothing to do with the ui .it is the fact that it wont be smooth no mather what ms say!if we have a hard time convincing software maker to not default administrator how you think ms will convince them to be certified and administrator!the speed factor?most advanced user are already as quick as w8 on average!.for the live tile?sorry not gona cut it!you have money to burn ?get the wrist kinect when its out for computer or the similar thing a small matchbox sized unit that do kinect but on a whole new level!

when i can control everything on my computer a la harry potter with the precision of a surgeon why would i want live tile!

when you can get it as cheap as $15, even if you sit on it and don't install it you have a key for cheap

I don't think you would see 9 going back to the regular ole desktop with tablet war's and companies trying to have 1 os synced across all devices.
