5 out of 5 eggs GREAT o.s. 07/02/2013

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


FAST: shutdown, restart, and system boot up.
Native usb 3.0 support.
Easy system " restore" options if you're new to pc troubleshooting world. ( I still prefer good old fashion wipe the storage drive clean--and do a custom clean install)


People who claim somewhat high or HIGH tech knowledge of a product then wine about the SILLIEST and most MINOR of things in which EASY and full variety of resolutions are available ( many of them FREE of charges) just with a few clicks and a google search

" waaa. I hate it because I can't boot straight into my desktop and can't avoid the metro screen..waaaa"

google it genius

Classicshell ( aka classic start from ninite dot com)

Take your pick of those. There are more than that

Also my guess from tried and true customer tech support experence is that handydandy is the type of person that " click click click" to install anything WITHOUT reading what he's installing. He probably doesn't understand that concept along with " selecting CUSTOM install " to actually SEE what the program you really want also trying to put in your pc.

My guess of his problem, VIRUS/MALWARE/ADWARE/junkware.

People the ONLY reason you encounter such problems is you DON'T pay attention to what you're clicking and actually READ first.

Use common sense when getting on a pc. I haven't ran antivirus software since 2002 and the ONLY time I received a virus is when a PURPOSELY tried to get one by going to very weak naughty websites that have no secure http, etc.

While you're at it. Keep little 9 year old susie and timmy off your pc. Common sense? It should be.

Other Thoughts:

My mushkin callisto deluxe with windows 8 pro 64 bit vs windows 7 pro 64 bit with the EXACT same amount of data filling up the drive actually performance very slightly better in iops and sequential reads and writes both 4k and big file sizes. Yes the difference is small and hard to notice, but it is there.

The ONLY real reason people complain about windows 8 is because the " windows 7 was my idea" and windows 8 " oh it's just another ME or Vista remake..skip it and wait for 9" because of the metro that they shoved in desktop users faces who couldn't care less about using a Logitech touch pad and were too lazy to GOOGLE such a simple resolution.

People complained going from 98se to xp, and 98se to 2000 also. and from 95 to 98. These same people must learn to find something more useful and productive to do with their online journalistic lives than poorly rate a good product. They are such whiners it's really pathetic, and they need to either SHUT UP and learn patience and critical thinking as far as LEARNING about the things they CHOOSE to purchase and use..or they need to learn the self discipline it takes NOT to purchase something that they KNOW they won't have such patience and eagerness to learn about so that they'll enjoy using it.

It is simple. If you CHOOSE to vote for garbage to put in the government/whitehouse...then you have NO right to complain when the garbage in power/authority raises taxes ( let alone keeps the fed income tax which is really UNconstitutional) and your and my paycheck shrinks even more the following year.

Grow up people. Learn how to potty train yourself and stop exaggerating your level of tech knowledge about a product when you CLEARLY missed the EASY resolution(s) about the things you complained about out of plain laziness.
