This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (Full Version) - Download
Pros: After using Windows 7 since it was released, and I already have Windows 8.1 installed on a custom built desktop and wanted a copy to install on one of my laptops. So I bought the downloadable copy of Windows 8.1 and saved $10. I also read and heard about how many people simply just didn't like it due to the start menu missing. Installing it took less than 30 minutes. The start menu isn't stellar, but the improvements that this OS has really is noticeable over Windows 7, especially the boot up and shutdown times.
Cons: Trying to figure out where everything was (control panel, etc) and no Windows Media Center w/o upgrade to Windows 8.1 PRO. Knocked off an egg for both of those issues.
Other Thoughts: Once I got everything figured out with this OS and customized the way I want it, I actually like it. Like every new Windows OS, it is almost always expected that you have to relearn where everything is and this is no exception. I still also have Windows 7 PRO x64 installed on another partition to go into if I need to access Windows Media Center and to install anything that might not work with Windows 8.1. Also the download version is cheaper to get than the boxed retail version and you can also save the download as an ISO to back up and burn another DVD copy if you need to.READ FULL REVIEW
