1 out of 5 eggs Unsuitable For Desktops 02/02/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 32-bit (Full Version)


It's Microsoft's newest operating system.


Windows 8 couldn't recognize some software, including the DVD for my Gigabyte GA-990FX-UD3 motherboard. The Windows 8 desktop tiles design was inconvenient for me to use, in comparison to the Windows 7 desktop. I reinstalled Windows 7, hoping Microsoft will provide updates or revisions to make Windows 8 more suitable for desktops.

Other Thoughts:

If Windows 7 works well for you on your desktop, I suggest staying with it as long as Microsoft continues to support it. In my opinion, Windows 8 appears to be intended for use mainly on mobile devices. For the OEM version, be sure to understand that it cannot be used on any other computer including if you replace your existing CPU and/or motherboard.
