I see you writting a lot, yet you don't make sense at all. Please stop, we do understand you are some kind of fanboy and you really don't like windows 8, yet you keep speaking in plural as if you represent a mass of people who are as dissapointed and angry at microsoft as you are... might you be a disgruntled microsoft employee?Is anyone else as confused as I am when reading this post??? The guy says the Windows 8 UI is horrible at the same time he says Windows 7 and Windows 8 are basically the same thing. So if I am interpreting his words correctly he is saying that the UI can be overlooked all together when comparing operating systems. That...it's irrelevant. Do I interpret your words correctly?
Windows 8 is not all that different from Windows 7 but the Windows 8 UI is horrible. Okay, now how many hours a day do people have to use the UI. 15 seconds a day? No, wait thats the boot time on a system with an SSD. Ummm, 15 minutes a day with the UI?? No, that doesn't sound right. Hmmm. I think I have figured it out. Unless there is a way to completely "bypass" the operating system UI I am thinking that people spend a lot of time using the UI of an operating system. If you don't spend much time using the UI of an operating system, do me a favor. Go out and buy yourself a tablet, any tablet, from any company, I don't care who. Because all your doing is killing the future of Windows by sending Microsoft a signal that says, "I really don't care about the UI. All I care about is my apps".
The only reason you probably won't get it is because the UI is horrible huh? LOL. You say that like you feel guilty and need even more reasons not to purchase.
"Yeah, I hate the Windows 8 UI (that I have no choice but to use) but I have to upgrade to Windows 8 so I can be hip and cool. So unless somebody gives me even more reasons not to upgrade to Windows 8 other than the lowly fact that the ****ing UI sucks a rosy red titty I am going to upgrade because I have ADD and begin to foam at the mouth if I have to wait too long for my operating system to boot. No, I won't let the pathetic, horrible, UI in Windows 8 stop ME from booting up 3 nanoseconds faster. Booyah!!!"
If YOU do not consider the pathetic, retarded, chimpanzee, in-your-face, UI in Windows 8 enough of a reason alone to deter you from upgrading to Windows 8 on a desktop than you either:
1. Dont spend enough time in the UI to care about it
2. You are a simpleton who uses Windows 8 to watch YouTube videos and report to everybody the last time you wiped your nose on FaceBook(because we all really care).
Moral of this story is this. Once again I say, If you fall into either of the two categories above, please do me a favor. Go buy yourself a tablet. And skip the desktop all together. Thank You.
And if you upgraded to Windows 8 and immediately brought back your start menu with a 3rd party utility I have one question for you. Why didn't you just buy a tablet? Or if you couldn't give up your start menu, why did you upgrade at all? Oh yeah....I forgot..."IT BOOTS FASTER!!!!".
I'm sorry and this is the first time I'll use this kind of language, but you don't need to be a ****ing ******* to express yourself.
That being said, back to topic.
There you can find benchmarks on performance of a machine using W7 and W8, so there might be a small difference but notebook users will surely welcome that small difference (Yes, when you are using a notebook and you need to move you're probably going to need to poweroff and on a couple of times per day, when your notebook is not that great, for it to boot in half a minute makes a whole difference when you need to search for something in particular and then boot off).
MY BIG PROBLEM, is how users WITH windows 8 will downgrade to windows 7, that is -like my friend who am replying- a totally biased and "I heard this and heard that about windows 8", or simply those "who changed my desktop! I can't find my computer icon!!" (You know, those who call you every couple of weeks because their internet is "too slow").
What is NOT THE PROBLEM, people happy with windows 7 who won't upgrade to 8 (Again, for those a bit slow that won't read, NOT THE PROBLEM).
Someone told something about powerusers loosing time in Windows 8 because you have to make "too many clicks"... powerusers don't use the mouse mate and in that regard, in my experience you can find everything even faster in windows 8.
Again, *******s, fanboys and microsoft disgruntled employees refrain from comments, please.
