Oh, ask my dad about that. Shortcuts are just for folders, i don't want a whole desktop full of clutter
Add to a desktop full of folder shortcuts AND BAM
Anyway, most w7 drivers can't work on w8.
No.... as in keyboard shortcuts.... hence the joke about real computer users. I work on CLI most of days.... I know how to vi, awk, sed....
The majority of W7 absolutely do
work on W8. I've hacked SATA controller drivers to work on W8. The only drivers I found that do not "work" are ones that do a OS check to block installation.

I should say "windows 8 = windows 7 with a big cluster turd of workflow impeding rubbish" (the metro interface)
From a power user perspective I find it terrible, trying to search for administrative tools and other things can be a nightmare.
Also metro is very bandwidth consuming when running remote desktop.
On top of that, the awkward transition between native metro apps and standard programs can be annoying
Even fact that M$ are coming out with 8.1 to replace 8 so quickly should be proof enough that it is a flawed piece of software?
trying to search for administrative tools and other things can be a nightmare. = WIN+X
Like I had said... if W8.1 will be available for him, then take it. This is a major redesign of the UI so there will be some discrepencies.
No, 8.1 does not support your case. MS has already stated they are moving to a much faster refresh cycle... they have to compete with the other OSes which are refreshing every 6-18 months.Edited by DuckieHo - 8/16/13 at 8:59pm
