I've heard that some folks even get nausea and headaches...
The main problem is that Windows 8 offers nothing new or better or revolutionary for an average user after Windows 7. No it's not faster significantly on a modern PC. So why buy it? Yeah sure there have been awful lot of changes "under the hood". Keep that techno blabla for the geeks.
Windows 8 is only worth it if it came with the hardware.
I built this computer last year and bought Win8 for $40. A great deal. I've already mentioned what I like about Win8 but I didn't mention its improved support for USB3. It works with my USB3 devices that only worked as USB2 in Win7.
I agree. If Win7 had been on this computer I doubt I would have upgraded to Win8. Even for $40.
I think 8.1 is an improvement over 8.0, but I don't think I'd upgrade on a 7 machine. I'd take 8.1 on a new machine though... And yes, I do think it's noticeably faster than 7 in many ways...
Thanks, i still haven tried 8.1 but this sounds good.
I've been using W8 for a couple months and im already used to it. I do try to avoid the start menu but i dont really care, im in the desktop 99% of the time and only get to the start menu to open some programs that i dont use frequently.
To be honest Windows 8 is a LOT better than Windows 7. I dont know if its the GUI effects or what but everything is or feels faster and smoother . . . cold starts, hibernation/sleep, launching programs, interface, everything.
Pretty much the same here although I'm very fond of Metro. It can be customized in so many ways. No wooden stake through the heart for me.
It's all about the presentation. Win8 desktop itself is fine (except for tiny details that people don't realise) but the Start Screen gets most of the attention. They could have just given users the option to use Win7 Start Menu just like how they gave XP users the option to use Classic Start Menu. Users are not that difficult to be convinced if you give them the impression of control.
