Summary: Have a desktop I constructed myself several years ago. Used top flight components at the time - that translates into average parts by standards now. Completely compatible hardware acc'd to Win 8 analysis program. Was running XP - got nervous about lack of support and potential online attacks. So I went and bought Win 8.1 and started the install process. That was two, frustration filled months ago.
Pros: faster boot time, faster shut down - when it works
Summary: We just bought a new computer for home. We bought an iMac and, simply put, it just works better. I could not see paying money for a new PC and having to deal with Windows 8.1. My office computer will run Windows 7 until it dies. I hope Windows 9 will be more like Windows 7 and leave the silly Metro junk alone.
Pros: Better than Windows 8.
Cons: Just about everything about Windows 8 / 8.1 sucks.
Summary: There is no way in god's green earth that I am going to swipe my high quality NEC screen that I use to edit my photos.
Pros: Pretty, maybe?
Cons: Can not kill multiple windows, Not intuitive to lean if you actually use windows for anything other than e-mail and surfing, Have to install a shell to make it functional., You must have a touchscreen to make this functional.
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: product arrived somewhat ok the disc was in ok condition however packaging looked horrible will not be in a hurry to order again it was very hard to read product key and was very satisfied with overall experience
Summary: The only advantage I see to Windows 8 is that it runs a little faster on my pc x64. But I was not able to save all the programs, most had to be reinstalled. It was not worth the effort. I wish I had not upgraded.
Summary: This product was listed as a full deal package and not an 'upgrade'. The price was incredibly good for a full blown version but not as good as the upgrade download from Microsoft itself which is in the $40 range. I will be returning this product unopened as it was certainly not what I ordered. Changing the page after does no good when I have a copy of the original receipt. Not good customer relations!! Other buyers beware.
