Great work, Win 8.1 and Win 10 will be WINNERS, stop knocking it this is MS's work in progress
24 December 2014
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
Summary: I was uncertain as to whether or not to upgrade to windows 8 but I found that this particular upgrade was easy to install and works fluidly with no problems. I upgraded from windows 7 home premium and had read that you could not play DVD's with this version.
Pros: Great Touch Features, Quicker Than Windows7, Smoother Start Up, No Start Tab On64 Version
Summary: I found this product as expected. I had a problem with my Windows 7 Ultimate activation and needed to upgrade to Windows 8. It worked out so fine and no bothering of activation issue with my previous version.
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).
