I thought that the title made it fairly obvious that this thread would be an anti-W8 thread.

If you didn't want to read comments from people complaining about W8, why did you visit this thread?

+1 Peter, the title would seem to suggest a dissatisfaction with Win 8, maybe other OSes.
I don't think Win 8 is a piece of crap, just not meant for a computer, just touchy-feely type toys.

Hi, Lee. It's always great to see you under any circumstances. I hope you're doing well.

I think what you're seeing here is mostly disappointment from the Win7 point of view. At least that's what I'm feeling.

We got to experience the very OS where MS perfected the Desktop Experience and then they throw it away for faddish Playskool buttons in a deliberate attempt to kill off the desktop - where most of the world's productive work is done.

But it makes our mission even more important here at the home for Win7.

Take good care, old friend! It makes me sad to think I won't get to see you over at EightForums much.

I don't honestly know what the fuss is about I am running an 8 upgrade on my main laptop in 7 style and frankly unless I flick it back to Metro style it is just like 7!!

The touchy feely stuff well thats just for those hand held things anyone doing it with a laptop I just do not see the attraction quite apart from having to constantly clean the crap off the screen

I am going to try it on my Sandy Bridge too only not using the original 7 SSD as I want to check out the speed with a faster set up.

I run 8 on my laptop, its not bad on that device. I don't hate 8, it just doesn't work for me on my desktop PC's with just keyboard and mouse. Windows 7 runs just fine on those PC's and does all that I want, so I that's what I use.

I haven't tried 8 yet, doubt very much that I will.

Most of the comments here about 8 remind me of mine when I had to go from DOS to Windows 95, then to Windows 98, then to XP and again to Windows 7. I don't make changes easily.

I saw a recent post on this forum where someone was congratulated for upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows 8, I thought that was funny.

I think MS makes OSes meant to be skipped. I had 95>98>XP> w7. I skipped Win ME, Win 2000 and Vista.

Well like I said I really don't see the problem as my laptop and the rest of the main machines I timed today so I can compare the speeds again when I get it on the Sandy Bridge and they are
Power to login Login to screen
Ivy = 28 secs 4 secs
Sandy = 39 secs 4 secs
Laptop = 12 secs 2 secs (in 8)
Laptop = 20 secs 3 secs (in 7)

Shut down times were 35 secs for the desktops and 8 secs for the laptop (7) and 2 secs (8)

Now each machine is set identically apart form a few different apps but basically with Brinks Optimise tutorial settings and only the security listed in Start up (msconfig)



The laptop drives were very close in the space used so the 8 in my instance is by far the quickest to boot and login into and shut down. Plus it has the slowest processor - an i5 430M.

in danger of becoming repetitive I run the 8 exactly the same way as 7 as far as the desktop view is concerned and if it were not for a different start button icon one would never really see it was 8 until you started digging around and flip between the Metro (if that floats your boat) and using the machine as I would normally with 7.

PS Meant to add when I get the Sandy B up and running I shall do some AS SSD tests as well to see if there is any difference in the scores just to be thorough.
