Default Windows 8

Bought an new computer 2 weeks ago.

Now at the moment windows 8 sells here in Holland.

Working now with it an all i can say it is discusting.

Have already talked with an coople computer specialists and they are also not happy with it.

Computer works with App system and the Email program looks it is made for an little baby or child with the huge letters.

When it updates it can take your hole internet explorer off you front screen.

If you want to buy an new computer my advice is waight for Widows 10.

Windows 10 works with the old system again like XP, vista and not the mess i am now into.

Seems that Windows have more complains about this that they now going back to there old system.

Exclamation Re: Windows 8

I got to agree. Windows 8 is has the worst operating system ever made. There is a lot of programs the windows 8 will NOT do that 2000XP did with ease. I cannot wait for the 10 version.

Hi

My wife loves it and I haven’t had any of the problems you all are talking about.

Just lucky I guess.

Most people hate when something they are used to changes, including me, which is WHY Start Menu 8 is such a great fix!.......
I installed it on another computer just yesterday after the 8.1 update.

Thanks Craig,

Almost everybody is complain about Windows 8.

This is why there is no Windows 9 is going to come out.
They are right going to jump over to Windows 10.

Windows 10 is more going back to the old system again.

Bert our computer specialist told that it takes more then an year to know everything about windows 8.

For the normal people this is to much and over an year everything wil be sold new under Windows 10.(the old system again).

I am not in for this so going to jump over in the future from Windows 7 til Windows 10.

And let the Windows 8 lovers if they like work/struggle with there 8 system...................

Windows 8... tis crap!

At this point Micro$haft has pissed me off enough I have vowed to never again spend a single dime on one of their operating systems. I run XP on my laptop with no script on Firefox and no flash installed at all. Never seem to get any infections. Run XP Pro on desktop, but have a free copy of Ubuntu Linux for both. For things like youtube I use my 10 inch Android tablet that cost $105 delivered. Just for fun I have a -free- Android simulator that runs under Ubuntu so I can run Android apps on my desktop.
Why would I ever need to bother with Micro$haft again?

With Linux you can also use a little ditty called "Wine" and run most Windows programs, it will also double boot with windows if you have enough memory for it to partition...
