5 out of 5 eggsAs Good as it Gets

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Got this on sale from Newegg.
Much more stable than XP.
Shipping from Newegg was fantastic, product arrived 3 days after the order was placed.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I personally like Windows, mostly just because it's what I put on the machines at work (due to incompatibility of other OSs). Before, it seemed like nothing would top XP, but going to use XP or Vista after figuring out how to navigate WIndows 8 is like pulling teeth.

Note: In general, Microsoft's support for their products has become just about worthless, in my opinion. Thankfully, I haven't needed a lot of help with the programs themselves, but in the workplace, we've had some issues with legitimate product keys not wanting to activate the products, and MS support has been worthless every time.

That said, as I've stated, Windows 8 is great, and it gets slightly better if you use a program that will give you a legitimate start menu. I use a 3rd party program to do this, and I love it so much that I load it onto all of the machines at work and at home that run this OS. Makes things just a bit more enjoyable.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat was Newegg thinking?

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: 8.1 is better than Windows 8

Cons: 8.1 is not as good as Windows 7

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 copies of this OS for pc's I am building for my kids and Newegg had a great sale at the time. With every Windows 8 purchase you get a free copy of Acronis True Image FOR MAC...really? I buy a Windows OS and get free Mac software with it? The Newegg marketing team must have been eating Colorado's finest brownies that day.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Starts up fast
Installs most devices seamlessly
Free upgrade to 10 from this version

Cons: No RDP in standard version
More crashes than with WIN7

Other Thoughts: Bought it to replace an expiring MSDN licence. Defiantly worth buying if you're a Windows user. Just keep in mind, no RDP so you'll need to run something like TeamViewer.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: With the reviews I was wary about 8.0 but when I read 8.1 patch reviews, I decided to try it out. I'm enjoying it immensely and you can customize it to have the original start menu if you are worried about it.

Cons: The start menu but I did my research and it does not bother me, I like new things. Just takes a bit to get use to it.

4 out of 5 eggsI should've gone with Win 7

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Latest MS operating system

Cons: Very different from previous Windows OSs. It's hard to find and create shortcuts for installed SW. No sleep option like Win 7.

Other Thoughts: I guess I'm just an old man but I think Win 7 is the best ever OS from Microsoft.
