It's such a slow and unusable operating system

cryptbear, CNET
4 March 2015
  • Summary: Why is Windows 8.1 such a crap? The constant updates, the stupid metro touch-screen app style which is a completely non-sense for desktop or non-touch-screen computers, extremly slow disk cleaning, constant cpu and harddisk usage for unknown services, the disk fragmentation ...
  • Pros: There aren't
  • Cons: Infinite CPU and HDD usage, hundreds of annoying updates

BROKEN. ALL OF MY GAMES ARE BROKEN.

AmyMay2, CNET
21 January 2015
  • Summary: If I could give this broken piece of crap no stars I would. Let me tell you what I use my computer for: Gaming, YouTube, emails, forums, and Word. Out of those, only 3 are working now. The forums being broken could have been bad timing, but the games are NOT.
  • Pros: I guess the start button is back. After I got used to it being gone.
  • Cons: Practically everything else is BROKEN!

Great work, Win 8.1 and Win 10 will be WINNERS, stop knocking it this is MS's work in progress

stevengen, CNET

  • Summary: I just cannot und understand most of the people who have reviewed and are so called giving their opinions on Windows 8 and now 8.1. that these same people have always criticised every new OS that Microsoft have brought out be it from 1984 when Win 95 was released , to XP, to Vista etc etc all the way to Win 7 that had the same and huge disapproval rating by all the mainstream purists as Win 8 is having now.
  • Pros: Fast boot, ease of applications use, and interface. All this is a fresh approach for an MS and has been done in Win 8 so that MS's can compete
  • Cons: IE 11, No native pop 3, should be made more efficient as a working OS than just for apps and web surfing

Gladly returned my tablet after 1 day

whatmeknow, CNET
9 December 2014
  • Summary: After 1 day  with this piece of junk I returned it. About as messed up of a system could be. Turned on, created the stupid account needed, got some basic apps for a tablet, then all the apps froze, RESTART, then couldn't download anything. Even a 1.5 meg app because according to the great and powerful windows 8.1 a 20mbps internet connection was too slow(you sure about that micro$#!
  • Pros: One more reason to hate Microsoft
  • Cons: I think we all know

Worst product in the long sad history of bad products

meisdadoo, CNET
26 October 2014
  • Summary: My old laptop with Windows XP died just before I had to leave town to give a presentation. I quickly bought a new Dell laptop without any time to do research--so I just got one of the "better" ones (more expensive). I figured that Dell makes pretty good hardware and I know my way around Windows, so what's to research? I traveled all day; and the night before giving my presentation I opened the box and started setting up the new laptop.
  • Pros: NOTHING, ZERO, ZIP, NADA, Null Set . . .
  • Cons: I hate everything about this product--DO NOT BUY IT ! ! !

Made bearable only with free software downloads

Fred_at_The_Farm, CNET
21 October 2014
  • Summary: We were Microsoft Partners and in the past I was always pleased to be able to recommend  Microsoft as part of a complex solution.  8.1 is a disaster, a bad Beta perhaps? that slipped through the net. There appears to have been no thought for the countless numbers of users of XP and other capable systems.
  • Pros: boots quickly Needs free downloads of Classic Shell, Live Mail,Open Office,Zone Alarm,CCleaner,SpyBot
  • Cons: Well most of it, nothing speeds work like XP, Outlook a sick joke. Could not recomend any of it to customers s
