I am Windows 8.1 all the way. Using anything else(Even the original windows 8) feels incredibly basic and just outdated to me tbh.
I wished Microsoft would go all in with their vision for it.
Unfortunate as it is, the whiners are what are making them back track.
Case in point, the return of a start button even though the Start screen is miles better.
LMAO i'll be peeved if they drop Metro and go back to regular icons. Blah.
They just need to fine tune Metro.
You're a funny guy, yeah 8.1 is great for business too, let me post this to my IT department
It's a pile of crap like Vista was. Forcing people to buy this crap on new hardware is all that saved them losing even more face. Ballamer said this was the bee's knees windows, then he quit when it was apparent it aint, and the share price bounced back. Google it. Windows 8 and Surface are a joke and it's all steve's fault for trying to dumb down windows to apples one click level of stupidity, so your grandmother and can use it and hipsters can finally have something "cool looking" to show their apple orientated friends. MS missed the mobile boat so they just throw **** at the wall now and see what sticks.
Metro is a content consumption space. It is designed for casual users who only want to check Facebook, view some photos, and maybe post a selfie to Instagram. It’s designed for your computer illiterate little sister, for grandpas who don’t know how to use that computer dofangle thingy, and for mum who just wants to look up apple pie recipes. It’s simple, clear, and does one thing (and only one thing) relatively easily. … So we forced it upon them. We drove them to it with goads in their sides.
Windows 8 is a flop. It is a painful thing to say about one of the most ambitious operating systems ever released, but the stats don’t lie. It has taken half the OS market share Windows 7 did in its first 12 months (10% vs. 20%) and now the adoption rate is so slow it is barely gaining on its 4 ½ year old predecessor. Finally Microsoft MSFT +0.1% has had enough.
