How many people on these forums have tried W8 !!! (I love W7 too)

Hi ALL

Just Curious in whether a lot of the W7 community have tried W8 at all.

Eight Forums

I really like W7 but I've also been incredibly surprised at how stable and fast W8 is too -- It's primarily based on W7 but it is a bit different.

To me it's amazing that W7 has evolved into something that could be used as a competitor to Android on mobile devices / tablets while still retaining features that are still needed on a PC using a "Classical OS".

Ms is going down the right road imo.

Cheers
jimbo

i have it ,but i dont use it often, as win 7 does everything i need it to. i dont like the explorer ribbon, i like a context menu, the fact you have to select a tab to see which parts of the ribbon features you see is annoying ,rather than a context menu that has it all in one long list.

not keen on the metro start page. not a lot of point unless you have a touch screen. i dont.

however it is nice having a new system to play with occasionally, but im sticking with lucky number 7.

Same here. I don't care what they want to put in Windows Phone, but my computer is not a phone.

The trend industry-wide seems to be to put the phone interface on desktop computers. IMHO, this is idiotic. I will not be rushing to Windows 8.

I tend to agree with the above, I don't like the metro interface. Not on a PC with no touch screen anyway. I ran it on a laptop for a couple of days and found it an exercise in frustration. I'm posting this from that same laptop now running Windows 7. Windows 8 is only an early alpha build so a lot could change between now and RTM, or even the beta release. I'll probably give the beta release a look see when it comes out. Until then though Windows 7 suits me just fine.

I installed the Win 8 preview the first day it was available. I find the new Metro GUI interesting but also realize that the final product my be very different.

I downloaded and installed it as soon as it came out. As far as the Metro, if I wanted an iphone, I would buy one. It may be great for some but not for me. After getting rid of that, I think it is good. Much like windows 7 but a little different and faster. Although i Have not used it that much, I am rather fond of it and find it quite usable. While this is just a developer preview, I think this is a good start and a good base to build on. That's my opinion.
