[techpowerup] - Windows 8.1, and Why You Should Let Go of Windows 7 - Page 3

post #21 of 24
"The biggest point of contention for PC enthusiasts refusing to upgrade to Windows 8..."

I'll finish that for you.

is that Windows 7 works just fine, why fix something that ain't broke? Not to mention you gotta spend money to fix something that ain't broke! You know why most people went to vista/7 from XP? Because XP looked DATED. The average user couldn't care less about anything else really. Back in the XP days I used stardock and all that stuff, XP just looked so 2000.


MS has been lagging behind technology for a while, they think hey!!! Touch screens has literally changed the landscape of phones, so lets do that to computers too!!!



NO Microsoft, you failed hard. Clearly you've never had one of your engineers sit in front of a 22+ inch display with his/her arms flying around trying to tap stuff. You know why a mouse and keyboard works so well? Because you minimize movement while still inputting the information needed. That's why a keyboard is the way it is, instead of having random keys everywhere and not arranged in rows.

You want the future? The next great thing like the original Mouse was? Invent a system where it tracks your eyes, and with a simple thought it will know what you want to do. Impossible now? Keep working until you can master such technology, THAT is the future. Not your idiotic giant touch screen with ugly grids.


To equate this to OCN terms, imagine if nvidia came out with a card. Now AMD says they can match it almost exactly, there might be one or two performance enhancements if you're using it for something else besides gaming, but aside from that the card performs identically( I don't want to hear AMD drivers suck....). Now AMD mass markets this card, and after a while wonders why people do not go out rushing to buy it.

I guess they don't teach you that at business school eh? That or MS think they're the new apple, "we tell our consumers what they want"
L O L!

I got trolled for saying something somewhat similar in another thread. I am not alone thankfully. Admittedly your post is more coherent than mine was rolleyes.gif

The writer of this article must get paid by the letter, which he/she buys crack with.

Probably PAID by MS to write such a thing anyways. I mean just look at the content.

With what? I am using a Sony VAIO with a Radeon HD 7550M, and I have no issues with drivers.
