Worse than Vista? 04/11/2014
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
Live tiles are great, a few apps are very well designed (Netflix, Plex). I think that's it. I seriously can't believe that that's it.
Nothing is intuitive, buggy as anything I've ever used, Metro is garbage when you're on a desktop/laptop, Desktop is nerfed because MS expects everyone to use Metro, updates aren't working, wi-fi is buggy, moving/organizing/deleting metro tiles is difficult, homegroups is a mess, 8.1 doesn't get it right....
MS needs to have a serious reality check about how long they want to ride the metro train. They look at XPs longevity as a sign that they did something right. The reality is that Vista was a steaming pile, and that scared everyone off upgrading from XP. If they don't want every to stick to W7 for a decade, they need to drop Metro with W9. I won't buy another Windows version with Metro. I'll switch to Mac. I'll use Android devices. I'd rather mess with Linux.
