Me either, but hey, it's my helpful nature that I have here on OCN.

Someone asks me for help, I generally try to give it to them. thumb.gif

Hey guys, could we watch the name calling in this thread please? Trolling, rude disrespectful behaviour & name calling won't be tolerated.

Seriously...all you bashers, read very slowly all your comments. They have no logic and are tainted by pure bias. There are no quotes in this article, no sources, nothing. Yet you pile it on like it's factual. That's logic problem number one. Secondly, your OPINION of the OS does not equate to it's actual quality. I'm a BMW fan and I don't like Mercedes. By all means Mercedes does not SUCK and I would not say so. If you are an adult use language like an adult to clearly communicate your opinion. But to basically claim something is usless or pointless due to your personal experiencial preference is absolutely inappropriate. On the other hand a viable reaction or comment would be better expressed as what you didn't like and the reason why.
"I run Windows 8 and I would say if it hadn't been for companies that return the start menu...It would have failed harder than vista/ME combined" This would be a perfect example of what I am talking about. There is no logic here. It is blatant use of hyperbole to express an opinion based on no facts. In my opinion nothing short of a grammar school review.
"I especially hated the fact that turning off my PC became a 4 step process" Here we are again...this is actually accurate that it might take one additional step then W7 to reboot or shut down your PC, but the reality is that is literally 1sec time difference. The way this is stated it makes it sound like it takes 10 minutes to shut down
"They should look at not releasing a new OS when clearly one was not needed." Now here we have someone who claims to know that inner workings of Microsoft enough(their goals, product release schedule, future tech, integration with other MS ventures, etc) that he can say to MS that W8 "is not needed". To be technical this forum is not needed either, but I don't see him boycotting that. Anyway, I would love to know what he thinks is needed based on MS' upcoming products, future tech, device integration, etc. I'd love to see his 5, 10, 15 year plan for MS complete with each department and their unified direction. He sounds like he must know what he is talking about, so I can't wait to hear it. Even still, he has no privalege of telling MS what is needed until he buys market share enough to dictate that direction. Just don't buy it.

Other responses:
"I have no need to use a touch screen...so I will be left behind..." You don't need touch screen to run W8. In fact, I don't even find a need for touch screen for most of what I do on my desktop. Dont know why W8 touch screen capability is such a hinderace on desktop for people.

There happens to be a Windows 8 fan club on this very site. I would suggest in direct contrast to many opinions posted here for the reasons that Windows 8 sucks...it doesn't suck. So for all who say Metro sucks because you don't like it, there is someone who says they love it and so it doesn't suck. It certainly can't suck and not suck at the same time. So maybe it's not a matter of sucking. Maybe its a matter of preference. Maybe it's a metter of getting used to change, Maybe its a matter of not caring that it takes 1.5 sec longer to get to the power options, especially with all the improvements.

Sorry for the long post(ok no I'm not) but I think we should be very careful in the language we use to convey facts, when facts aren't really what we are conveying.
Thanks for listening

Man, you're going about this all wrong. You're using logic and facts to prove a point on a forum full of fanatical haters. Try being more emotional. Post something that is complete hyperbole with no links to facts or sources. THEN you're getting somewhere.

Hey now, stop using common psychological and sociological principles to disprove this websites heading. Of course the pursuit of performance isn't good if it doesn't do it in a way that makes us comfortable.

This is the same forum where people pour HELIUM and NITROGEN onto their processors to get them to run as fast as possible. But hey an advanced OS with touch screen capability that reads memory in a more efficient way?! Sounds g-NO START BUTTON LETS PWNZER MICROSOFT BURN IT DOWN BURN IT DOWN!!!! Yes, the logic in it is not there. It performs better. It is better. I am the guy that stayed with XP until 7 was on its last year and I am saying it is better. I can only assume some people are stuck in the dark ages.

If I wanted an OS that was faster I would use Linux.
post #115 of 168

Why the heck I want touch screen on a desktop? If it is like Wacom Cintiq, well I'll buy that but that is not what it is. lol

How is this not locked yet? The article clearly isn't news, and most of the 'conversation' in this thread have only to do with why Windows 8 is either not bad or OMGAWFUL.
