  • 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...
  • 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

User Review

  • Summary: This is an upgrade, you must have either Windows 7, Vista or XP (Service pack 3) installed BEFORE installing this product. I found that a 'Clean' install worked better (ie - Overwriting ALL your data rather than keeping your old files, so make sure you backup your data first).
