[Nextpowerup] Windows 8.2 Scheduled for January 2014 - Page 11

post #101 of 105
Until I've used Win8 for a month or so, I was missing the start menu but later Metro menu was actually better and faster for me. It allows to view your favourite app shortcuts without many slide out menus

Looking forward to 8.2. I have always been a hater of Windows 8 and said I would never use it. Now because of Battlefield 4 stuttering, I decided to try it. I must say I am impressed...People were not joking when they said it was fast......because it is amazing. Smokes Windows 7 in smoothness and speed.

My biggest gripe at the moment, is that I the Metro tiles are too small...

I love how they keep saying, "luckily the update will be free"

SPs have always been free, just because Mac started using that as one of their "innovations" now news outlets are using it too?

Ugh.

That's confused media for you. The whole 8.1 - 8.2 is feeding the "omg it's a new OS" train of thought.

OTOH if MS had just said "here's a new SP" the notion of paying for it might've been discussed by the media but likely discarded due to previous free SPs.
