1 out of 5 eggs Win8 yes cell phone OS on my pc not! 04/09/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)


If you like your OS to run and act like your cell phone than your happy.


We're to start. First off this OS was built for touch screens runs like cellphone OS. Tried to use this on our pcs at work for general use and let me tell you half the software we use would not run on it. ( and yes the the software is up to date and current) this reminds me of vista when it comes to software not working right. Also why would I want my pc to look and feel like my cell phone. We benchmarked this OS in the same pc as win7 and found the pc to run a lot smoother and faster than the win8 build ( i7 CPU 16gb 1866 DDR 3 two ssd 120gb drives) with the same hardware.

Other Thoughts:

After thought this OS I would not recommend in a business setting. Home use would be best and I was looking forward to a new OS so it's not like I didn't want to upgrade I'm a tech head have to have the best out. And this is not it.

To each his own this was my honest opinion.
