    Just to let everyone know, today will be the last day that windows 8 will be availabe for an approximate 80% off discount. I believe it goes from like 40 dollars to 200 +. (buying boxed version is 70 dollars)

    This is not an advertising attempt, its just for anyone on NB who might not have known before its to late!

    Well to just bring you up to speed Google are brining out out a Chrome OS.

    On topic: Windows 7 meets all my needs. I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 because it was a greedy son of a ***** with RAM. Windows 8 has not really improved too much on computer performance so it isn't worth my time or money.

    Re: Windows 8

    Windows 8 was designed for touch interfaces... and it really is difficult to get it back to something that functions the way most of us use a computer operating system for.

    Windows 8 Tablet? Alright, fine. Windows 8 Phone? Sure, why not? Windows 8 computer? ... What's it got over Windows 7?

    And the answer to that is, honestly, nothing. Windows 8 is Windows NT 7.x while Windows 7 was NT 7.0. It's 7 with the service packs and a new UI.

    Re: Windows 8

    I bet this a slick tactic to get people in a panic shopping mode. Windows 8 is horrible to work with so I've heard from several people.
    So Windows put's up this tactic as if the product is legit

    Windows 8 is amazing, I am using it right now. Only reason a person would not like it is because it is not user friendly enough for them (basically they are stupid when it comes to computers.)

    Honestly, a lot of the people I know in tech support and those of us who build computers with any kind of regularity are not at all impressed with Windows 8.

    You have to fight it at every turn to get back to an interface that functions fluently for a desktop (it likes to default to idiot-tiles the size of a milk carton), and it was just not designed with mouse-and-keyboard functionality. It was designed for tablets and phones and the only real thing it brings (back) to the table is having a Kernel that can operate on ARM based architectures. It's been enhanced with some power-saving features and some other nice things that give it lightning-fast start-up times and good battery life on ultra-mobile platforms... but it's really not all that substantial of an upgrade over Seven (for a computer).

    By all means - Phone, Tablet, or touch-enabled laptop... probably not a bad idea.

    Desktop or power notebook computer? Probably in more functional territory with Windows 7.

    Unless they release a Service Pack that allows you to pretty much can their interface they've been trying to cram down everyone's throat thus-far (I don't see that stance lasting very long - almost no one in IT finds 8 to be a good buy and it looks to be going over like Windows ME).
