Summary: Not as great as advertised. Designed for touch screens. My biggest complaint is that there is no thumbnail feature for your pictures, WHAT A PAIN. If you don name all of your pictures you will spend alot of time looking for the one you want. BRING BACK THUMBNAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Worthless web page. What does this software do? Why would I want it? You want me to give you $100 for this. Even the links provided to Microsoft don't give any information. You probably don't sell many of these do you. Wonder why?
Summary: I really wanted to like Windows 8. I feel like I put in my time too in getting used to it. At the end of the day though ... it feels oppressive. (sorry, don't know any other way to describe it). You'll notice it in at least a few different ways. It always wants you connected to Microsoft as you use your computer. Always connected to the Cloud. Why? The included apps and/or the ones you can download conflict with you using Programs that you might be more familiar with.
Pros: They made some obvious performance gains with Windows 8. From boot times & shut down times, to the general user interface feeling more responsive.
Cons: A lot of why I couldn't stand windows 8 had to do with how it tries to force you into things. Almost 20 years of a start button/menu on an OS? ... lets force the Metro UI on you. You want to use the new apps?, that are kind of like programs, or you want to use the programs you're more familiar with? We'd like you to login to your MS account online. Would you like to login now? How about now? or now? The apps/program distinction was grating on me too. I could've spent ...
Pros: - The navigation at first seems tedious but is easy to get used to (however I must ask: what was wrong with the Windows 7 interface?) - Fast boot up times (faster if you uninstall some unnecessary software that comes with the package)
Cons: - Constant crashes, freezes and software errors for no reason - I experienced a problem where my CPU and Disk Utilization maxed out when I was running a basic web browser
