RoxtarRyan: Lsherm: I upgraded to 8 from 7 two weeks ago, and I'm doing a clean install of 8 right now. Here's my overriding suggestion: DON'T DO AN UPGRADE.Well, for $40, you get a full Win8 Pro key (still available till the end of Jan). Doing an upgrade might be the only option a lot of people have, since the full install key might be a tad more expensive.So, what I did was a fresh install of 7, then went to 8. No problems noted.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Oakenshield: That's a lot of prose detailing what could be summarized with: Consumers.Are you implying that MS is fine, it's consumers that are the problem?
Am I so out of touch? No, it's the children who are wrong.
doczoidberg: Desquamation: To get to the normal looking desktop, you click on the desktop tile. Not sure why that's an issue.I figured that out after a minute or two.What I'm REALLY dreading is the day when even doing THAT is no longer an option. Eventually, Microsoft will double down on the whole Tiles thing, and force us to use them all of the time.I dunno; the tiles make me feel like I have no control over the files I store on my machine. I like to create folders, cut and paste...move stuff around...look at a file's properties...and I feel like you can't really do that on a mobile device, or Metro.
styckx: doczoidberg: I haven't heard of a single person who got Windows 8 and actually like the Metro tiles thing.I like it and use it daily as do many others.. I actually uninstalled Start 8 and just use the start screen now. It's quite convenient at organizing your apps instead of pinning 900 things to the taskbar or digging through the start menu which was farking awful to open and quickly find what you needed.
