but its still stupid.
and I know the metro interface looks cool on page one... but the metro-style components and dialogs that you get when in desktop mode just look childish when on the real desktop, like your five year old just started playing with MSPaint or something
looking forward to windows 9
I agree entirely. I'd have all my computers running on Debian if it weren't for MS Word (I HAVE to HAVE it for school.) I do also enjoy Photoshop. (I'm not a gamer either.)
I was reading comparisons of Win 7 and Win 8. They tested a machine very similar too mine, and all I got out of the article was Win 8 being faster. Which is a good thing, but at what cost?
Win 8 booted in around 36.8 seconds, and 7 in around 56.whatever. Even if that is a very noticeable difference having to switch from Metro to Desktop.. And the desktop being poorly set up just makes me think failure.
I know all those people who like their pretty GUIs might like it.. But to me it's all just bloat and bog.
