Better than Win 10 10/8/2016 4:18:46 AM

Pros: Allows more RAM than win 7

Cons: DVD Architect is gone
Blu Ray player is gone

Overall Review: MS removed features without consulting me. At least it's not Win 10.

After reevaluating 9/1/2016 8:13:45 AM

Pros: it was probably one of their bettor OS

Cons: Since the onset of Windows 10 (I am not a fan)

I am beginning to think that Windows 8 is probably one of the best OS Microsoft ever designed. Had they included a Windows 7 style menu, we would have never even heard of Windows 10.

Really!!!Go back in the box 11/22/2014 5:58:48 PM

Pros: Better then other options out there. I even bought a touch screen. I find when I use it I just use it in desktop mode like I would for windows 7. The only good thing I have to say for it is if you want a dumb down version windows 7 this is for you. Otherwise its just windows 7 with candy wrapping.

Cons: I liked windows 7 better, I honestly think the person who went outside of the box should go the (blank) back in. The only improvement is the price.

If you have a touch screen you may find yourself trying to use none-touch screens the same way.

Overall Review: Great for those moving up from Mac, and for those who really care less about linux.

Yes BUT 8/5/2014 5:04:47 AM

Pros: Upgradeable to 8.1 pro

Cons: Technically, this ver is upgrade-able to 8.1 pro, but had I to do it all over again, I would have seen the TRUE 8.1 pro 64 bit OEM for the same price. Now, as updates occur in future, will I be behind one level? When Microsoft changes to a costly update, will I have to pay sooner than if I had bought the current version to begin with for the same cost?

ubuntu is far better 7/30/2014 7:55:22 PM

Pros: Everything works as far as programs/games compared to Linux where it is a challenge more often than not.

Cons: More difficult to use than Ubuntu in just about every way.

Overall Review: Perhaps Microsoft should hire some Linux people to work on the next windows to improve usability.

Can't do update 7/19/2014 4:49:20 AM

Pros: Windows 8 installed flawlessly on the new build and runs pretty stable. No crashing on my sons new gaming rig.

Cons: For some reason we cannot get onto the "Windows Store" to get the update to 8.1. I thought I would save a few bucks and buy the Windows 8 Pro and do the update rather than buy the full up Windows 8.1. What a mistake.

There is a whole community of people that cannot get to the "Windows Store". Unfortunately we didn't realize that until we installed it.

Overall Review: If you want Windows 8.1, buy the 8.1 media. If you want Windows 8, call a doctor and get some help.

Biggest mistake microsoft has ever made 7/12/2014 11:11:15 PM

Pros: Nothing. There is nothing good about this mess of an OS.

Cons: It is by far the ugliest UI I have ever seen, everything from the flat, sharp edged windows to the Vomit inducing Metro UI is garbage. Even the install screens are full of eye wrenching colors. I wouldn't buy this even if they put the windows 7 start menu back. It's just too ugly. I would rather use windows ME with BOB for a UI than this garbage.

Overall Review: Microsoft really messed up on this one. They EOLed XP and are trying to scare people away from windows 7, but the windows 8 usage has flattened out and is actually slipping, while windows 7 is gaining more market share. They said they will have the start menu back in windows 9, but what I've seen of the windows 9 start menu, they are trying to wedge the Metro look in there too, so I probably won't be buying that either.

Don't waste your money 7/12/2014 7:43:36 AM

Pros: Win 9 to come soon. If you need an OS, go for it. Otherwise wait The thing I hate the most, out of many, is that you MUST have a Microsoft ID. The other things that really suck about Win 8 would make a list far to long to post here.

Cons: Google these and then double it.
