Microsoft Windows 8 Getting A make Over

Postby dolphinsiah » Wed May 08, 2013 10:58 am

I was using this new OS for the last 4 months....



It is something new , but not suitable for PC users....

It will work well with smartphones but not on PCs...

Most of the softwares will not run properly with this Window 8....


I learnt 1 very valuable lesson when I upgraded my new laptop to window 8...

It is easy to Upgrade but not Downgrade....

2 weeks ago , my new laptop ran into problems and had to be reformatted back to window 7....

Now I happily use Window 7..... :xedfingers:

Sorry to hear that you have so much problems with windows 8. I now have windows 8 on all my computers save one, and it has been able to run all the applications I threw at it. It is still pretty much a PC-based O/S "with touch screen", but it does take some getting used to.

Blue ... What a name!

Remind me of the infamous blue screen of death

Do not have any problems with any software though.

They really need to bring that start button back. It's been iconic as the most useful thing on Windows ever since XP.
