1 out of 5 eggsSomeone dropped the ball

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Not sure I've been waiting to get this OS for eight business days........ Odd I payed for three day shipping on a $1500 order. I would enjoy writing reviews of some of the components I bought sadly that too will have to wait.

Cons: Still waiting on shipping.... I should have gone to Best Buy.

3 out of 5 eggsWindows 8.1, What can I say?

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Does the job..

Cons: Had problems with my n600 wireless adapter(with correct driver), dropped connection every 5 minutes at least (Runs fine on windows 7 computers). Ordering a network card to throw in my pci express slot to see if that'll work, running ethernet to a laptop right now which works for now.

4 out of 5 eggsWindow 8.1 64 bit

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Purchased this for my 15 year old grandson's first computer build. He found it easy to install, with my guidance. It did come cool apps but also many he did not want. It was compatible with most of his present Windows 7 software. I have found several customizations that he could do to make it more acceptable to my his wishes and needs. He found it very quick to start up and run his programs.

Cons: It has not complained about anything except starting up on the app screen. We have changed it so it will auto go to his familiar looking Windows 7 screen format.

Other Thoughts: My grandson has had no complaints thus far. You do qualify for a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released.

5 out of 5 eggsWINDOWS 8.1 *OEM*

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Ok, READ THIS. Re: "OEM" I *JUST* SPOKE TO MICROSOFT ON CHAT (6/14/15). Q. Is the OEM version "allowed" for people building their own machines, and NOT for later resale. A. *YES*. And I asked the question multiple times, in different ways to ensure absolute clarity. Q. Can an OEM purchaser use it for their own machine that they built and then validly upgrade to Win 10 without issues? A. *YES*. Q. I'm not breaking any laws or violating the EULA (End User LIcense Agreement), am I? A. *NO*, you are *NOT* violating the EULA. I used to work for a software company and I'm very sensitive to EULAs and piracy.

And, having worked at a software company, I wasn't surprised, but the agent told me that Windows 10 (free upgrade from Win 8.1!) is going to be NOTHING SHORT OF *AWESOME*. Like I said, a response like that is to be expected, but its nice to hear.

Cons: It took me contacting MS directly to get the definitive answer.

Other Thoughts: I recommended in my "Chat Survey" that MS should provide clarity on the Software Product Description as to exactly what the EULA is and what is/is not allowed.
