So...tried going from 8 back to 7.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had some Minecraft/java/nvidia issues in Windows 8. Basically, Minecraft would crash and nvoglv64.dll would always be the problematic frame in the error log.

This doesn't happen in 7, so I tried to go back...and I couldn't do it. It's just..not as good. The best way I can explain it and make an accurate comparison is, for all the hardcore Chrome users out there, it's like going from Chrome to Firefox. Most of you who have tried that will know exactly what I'm talking about.

Just thought I'd share this with you guys. If you're not a fan of metro, grab Start8 from Stardock. Don't let metro stop you from using 8.

Windows 8 really is just better..

EDIT: Did manage to fix my Minecraft issues (or at least it seems that way).
