Linux_Yes: windows 8?just another reminder to me of how sweet its been using Linux all these years.
vartian: Hmmmm...so it's like a collection of Facebook apps?
Gunther: The sad thing is, there actually are a lot of improvements under the hood. But 95% of people aren't gonna suffer through that awful, pointless interface change if those improvements included a sexbot mode.
bloobeary: Yes, windows 8. You're a hot sportscar with power to spare. Unfortunately, your cockpit and controls were made from Tinkertoys.
Molavian: Linux_Yes: windows 8?just another reminder to me of how sweet its been using Linux all these years.Yes, it's the year of the Linux desktop. Again.

Dinobot: /Didn't like the demo we got at work
SineSwiper: This is all you need to know about how Windows 8 is so badly put together... (also, his other news links and the video at the bottom)And if that doesn't convince you, remember the ancient rule that always works: "Every other version of Windows sucks."Windows 2 suckedWindows 3.11 was good (for being Windows...)Windows 95 suckedWindows 98 was goodWindows ME suckedWindows XP was goodWindows Vista suckedWindows 7 was goodWindows 8 will suck
kroonermanblack: Also am I the only one who still finds windows 7 wierd to navigate? Just not sure if its me aging or windows 7 is just wierd, or if they radically changed everything on purpose etc.
star_topology: Linux_Yes: Dear Monopoly$oft,God bless you for windows 8 too! you've been so very helpful.Sincerely,LinuxYou know what's going to happen coming in here with that stuff. Couldn't you just post as an alt for threads like this? :)
Linux_Yes: Molavian: Linux_Yes: windows 8?just another reminder to me of how sweet its been using Linux all these years.Yes, it's the year of the Linux desktop. Again.its been the year for the Linux desktop since 2005 for me. once i left XP, i never looked back. didn't know what i was missing.but you go ahead down the cul de sac you're on. i mean, what could go wrong?oh, and don't forget to update that antivirus!
HugsAndPuppies: kroonermanblack: Also am I the only one who still finds windows 7 wierd to navigate? Just not sure if its me aging or windows 7 is just wierd, or if they radically changed everything on purpose etc.This. XP was easy. 7 is like slogging through mud.
roflmaonow: For those that want only the desktop experience, try stardock on win 8. Makes the Modern UI go away and loads the desktop by default with the old classic start menu. I found I like the new UI. Even on a non tablet, non touch screen monitor.
Dinobot: If there was a way to have the old W7 UI in W8, I might consider giving W8 another chance/Didn't like the demo we got at work
HenryFnord: The NO GO sign for me was discovering that all apps had to be digitally signed and if they weren't they couldn't be installed without rebooting the system in safe mode, and monkeying down into advanced security settings before rebooting and installing the app.
