LasersHurt: Just hit Start and start typing. You'll find everything.
Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Pft, I was using Win98 til 2009.Now that I have Vista, I assume I'll keep using that til... 2020? By then I guess someone might have invented a Linux distro that's not utter chickenshiat.
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: Mouse to the right of the screen, click gear icon, click power icon. It ain't rocket surgery.
Zmog: Does people who used Windows 7 and get paralyzed by Windows 8 also get paralyzed by jeans with a button up fly when their other pants used to have zippers? Or by velcro instead of shoelaces?
extroverted_suicide: Some of us use computers for real work, not (just) playing Angry Birds and watching pr0n.
shifter_: And to the people that think it is stable? Go into you system logs and see all of the shiat happening behind the scenes..... just a matter of time before you get a critical error....... like if you plug something into USB while it is going into power down hibernate mode. Yep that was a good one. Good news is I lost all of the tiles when it happened! WOOT!
towatchoverme: don't care how much you White Knight Windows 8, LasersHurt ... Clippy isn't gonna sleep with you.
Marine1: The Windows Start Button had its place and its time. Now, we've got a new paradigm for usage coming in, and Microsoft is adapting to it. I like it, personally: not everything is best done in a Win32 application. Some stuff is better. Windows 8 gives us options. Computer manufacturers are being forced to actually innovate and think of new ways to do things. I see nothing wrong with this.
Unknown_Poltroon: Ive been wokring tech support for 20 years. I played with it in the store. It annoyed the crap out of me. Still better than visto.
Flint Ironstag: What does Metro actually add? Mirrors, windscreens and seatbelts all added a useful function. What does removing Start and adding Metro actually add?
Zmog: Ignore grammar fail above.
Bungles: Windows is still a thousand times easier to use than any Mac OS variant (still have no idea what I'm doing when unexpectedly favorited!ed on a Mac, after 15 years of it happening). Its ease of use is simply a marketing lie if you want to do anything even borderline complex.
LasersHurt: I literally support people for a living.The complaint this keeps boiling down to is "anything is different at all, and any learning at all makes it a bad OS." I think that's lazy, because it takes literally SECONDS to learn what to do, and the OS outside of these few new things is great.
oh_please: LasersHurt: Holy shiat, guys, press the Windows key. There, everything's back the way it was.It's so easy to use, and been completely stable. I don't know what has given you guys such trouble.Except, "Where's the Start button on my desktop?"
LasersHurt: oh_please: Metro is a solid interface for phones/tablets, but it's horribly clunky on an actual PC, Grandma will have to relearn everything."Everything"? Relearn "Everything"? Just hit Start and start typing. You'll find everything. That's just ONE thing to learn, and it works well. As far as adding or removing tiles, either just use the desktop like they're familiar with, or learn the one or two things necessary. It takes seconds.I mean, there are a FEW things that are different, but it's not jarring because the core behind it all is the same.
