Excerpt: I ordered Win 8.1 and immediately wrote the product key on the box. Next I attempted to install it. It had the wrong processor. I couldn't send it back because I wrote on the package. I ended up eating it.

Summary: Windows 8 is the biggest disappointment that Microsoft has ever released, it’s hard to navigate completely different than any other windows in the past. You cannot find a traditional start menu, if you want to find a program you have to type the name of the program in to the search menu, to place a...
Summary: At First I was confused with the different colors of the boxes, the full, the upgrade, the builder versions but I ended up buying the Microsoft Windows 8 Pro upgrade. The upgrade is simple, I inserted the CD and the system asked me if I wanted to keep personal files or nothing, after typing in the...
Summary: If anybody wants to trade a Windows 7 disk & license for my Windows 8 version, I would be VERY happy to do so. Been f-ing around with this stupid thing on a laptop for several days, and I can still hardly do anything without running into big problems.
Summary: Pros: Quick boot time... Cons: 3497 characters isn't enough to describe how bad this OS is on a desktop PC. Take everything you've known from windows 98 to windows 7 and just forget it...Starting with windows 8 you might as well be a complete computer noob...it's that non-intuitive.
Summary: People are creatures of habit. For decades, microsoft has groomed us with certain functionality. Building on features in some areas, and tweaking or minimizing in others. But the core UI has always stayed essentially the same.
DON'T BOTHER UPGRADING. THIS HAS NOT BEEN THOUGHT OUT AT ALL. PROBLEMS !! PROBLEMS !!!

Summary: This is just a cash grab by the 800 pound gorilla - yeh you know who you are ! Almost everything you've come to appreciate about operating in the Windows world - commonly called Earth - has been buried, mangled and just generally BOTCHED. Want to record a CD or DVD with your burner ?
Summary: I have several systems and enjoy the windows 7 version. Purchased a laptop recently and was loaded with windows 8. To put it bluntly it is a terrible system. To the powers that be you need to understand not everyone wants a tablet with a touch screen.
Summary: wish they would update and make 8.1 do all the things we could do previously, especially sending email sites as attachments, and photos as well.. Lots of complaints and hope they deal with it in updates.....
