5 out of 5 eggsSkeptical at first...

Pros: Fast install.. literally the fastest windows install I have done. Tried it on a HDD and a SSD and the SSD of course performed faster but even doing a traditional install from a DVD to an HDD blew my mind. From blank drive to desktop in like ten mins or less, setting up a windows live account and getting texted the security code eats up a lot of time.

Boots extremely fast. If you disable the fast startup it's on par with Win7 but on fast startup is nice to jump from tapping the power button to login under ten seconds.

Forced myself to try it for two weeks with Win7 as a dual boot in case I had issues I could reboot to get back to normal life but now I find myself using 8.1 more.

Cons: Still has some compatibility issues. Took a little time to smooth out driver problems and days of setting stuff to the way I wanted it but in the end it's pretty good but still room for improvement. My biggest complaint was overall navigation when on the desktop.. Years of familiarity with XP Vista and 7 were out the window. This is truly the biggest issue but there is solutions.. See my further comments below.

I was annoyed that Windows Media Center had to be purchased separately through the store for $9.99 but I can live with that. If I buy the top version of an OS I kinda expect things like the premiums to be included...

2 out of 5 eggsWaiting for Win9

Pros: Can't argue with the benchmarks. Higher than WIn7 kernel.

Cons: Interface is a complete disaster. Cookie-cutter interface doesn't bode well for a desktop OS. If you have to install add-ons for the basic UI of an OS, then meh.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Very fast installation! This has got to be the fastest installing windows yet. Feels quite a bit faster than 7 in pretty much everything. It does take a bit of tweaking after setup to get the desktop to function and work to my preferences. Almost all of my old apps still work and joining it to my network domain was super easy.

Cons: Behind my network firewall none of the metro apps will connect to the internet. The metro apps don't use the same TCP/IP authentication methods as the desktop apps "i don't think they use any for that matter". This is not really a big deal as I never use the metro interface and some times even forget that it is even there.

Other Thoughts: I have used windows 8 for a while on my laptop so I knew ahead of time what I was getting myself into.

5 out of 5 eggsWin 7 Fan who loves 8.1

Pros: Fast load. Fast quit. Very stable. Task Manager is a dream. Very easy to get configured as an excellent desktop platform.

Cons: Lost the games from Win 7. Came without gadgets.

Other Thoughts: Don't like the touchy feelie, flippy floppy frontend? Get rid of it. Log in through Windows Live? Why on earth would YOU set it up that way? Between all the helpers at Mr. Google and the group policy editor this is just a much improved win7. Maybe something like win7sp4. I haven't seen ANY evidence of that garbage frontend the stupid marketing dept at MS pasted on the front since the second day. OK, if you don't know the difference between a bit and a byte, this OS is not for you, and you should probably stick to the little toy pad thingy. If you know the difference, this OS is great. However, get some education on the new security protocols before you load up the drive. You need to take control of the HD first or you will have problems later.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat OS

Pros: Second day of using 8.1 and I really like it. Very fast and not hard to get used to. You can switch to desktop mode after boot up which is like using windows 7. 8.1 is faster and I like the different look.

Cons: The only con is having to create a Microsoft account which is not too terrible.

Other Thoughts: So far I like it just as much as windows 7. Wanted something new to learn. I can see why some users do not like it, but it is a nice OS. It is windows 7 with a facelift.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Loads very quickly (i do have my OS booting from an SSD) it takes me about 5 secs from the time i start the computer to the logging screen. Loaded all my drivers from the time i booted, did not have to lift a finger myself. Right clicking the "start" (windows) icon on the desktop has shortcuts to all the windows management stuff from manage to event viewer and task manager, run and control panel (this is fantastic i use it all the time!) also very easy to right click and turn off the computer from there also. The tablet settings bar and tablet functionality i dont use very much however, it synced automatically with my Asus Vivotab so i have all the apps on my desktop and favorites from the tablet. Another cool feature is that i have my OneDrive mapped directly on my windows explorer so i can access it at any time!

Cons: Its not really a con but it takes me a few more seconds to get to apps and software like the calculator and things because you have to get to them differently, its not bad its just a bit annoying when you are in a hurry.

5 out of 5 eggsChange for the better

Pros: I like everything about 8.1. All the programs I use have installed had no problems and worked seamlessly. It was a new interface to learn but thankfully a few google searches and a couple hours later I was familiar with all the options of the system that I fit my daily needs. I like the new interface and it does everything I need it to.

Cons: I know a lot of people have cons, didn't do any research before hand or don't want to take some time out to learn where the options moved to. Change can be hard sometimes. I have no complaints, this OS worked as expected and fits my extensive OS needs.

5 out of 5 eggslike it

Pros: I don't see the problem with this os it works fine for me. Faster boot time, just everything faster. Well I did come from vista so can't get worse.

Cons: Same as everybody else the ui take a while to learn. If you have internet connecting during install you have to make a
ms account.

Other Thoughts: download a app for a start menu that solves most problems people have with this os.

4 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: I skipped over Win 7 and converted from Windows XP. I think 8 is pretty easy to use. I'm not a fan of the tablet style interface. But that's easily rectified using Win 7 Shell. Win 8 installs and loads quickly. Once you get use to it, I think it's pretty cool.

Cons: Although I do like the Bing weather app, I'm not a fan of the app style interface. I knocked a bubble off because Win 8 is geared towards a tablet user. Desktop users don't want a touch screen interface.

Other Thoughts: Asus Sabertooth X79 2011 Intel MB
16GB GSkill DDR3 1866 Ram
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
Corsair H80 CPU Cooler
EVGA GeForce GTX 560Ti
Corsair HX 750W PSU

5 out of 5 eggsWorking Fine

Pros: Working Good for me. A few comments on previous posts I read when ordering. This works fine for my gaming. No problems. If you do not want to create an account (or login if you have an account), then do NOT have your ethernet hooked up. It will bypass sign in registration.

Cons: Haven't had any issues at all. Got a Raid o and a RAID 1 running plus a music drive. Handling all in perfect stride.

Other Thoughts: Only gripe I had was with newegg. Just a suggestion, DO NOT go with rush processing. It is a waste of money. Same for Next Day air.... they will get it too you when they are ready.
