Windows 7: Seven vs Eight Forum usage

I dual boot Win 7 and Win 8 and visit both forums on a regular basis. I prefer this forum as there is always a lot of trash talk between a few members on the Win 8 forum and they keep repeating the same arguments about Windows 8.

Just hover over your post count on the left under your system info in any post of yours. Or right click your post count and select Copy link address, or whatever choice your browser gives. You are 74,269.

Yeah, it's tiring for sure. I thought it would stop after all the original Eight sucks news settled down (which I was posting often ), but a few have appointed themselves defender, or detractor of all that is MS there. A Guy

Yeah, I created an 8forums account when I really started to play with Windows 8 and do some testing. Since 8 was new, there was lots and lots to talk about. Thus, I tended to gravitate more towards just checking and posting to that forum on a daily basis since I had more to say there.

I've far from left Windows 7 behind. My new work laptop is running Windows 8 ( I enjoy the fast boots), and it was brand new, so figured why not get 8 and force it full time. With some tweaks, a start menu, etc...It's no issue for me at all. But the rest of my machines and such are Windows 7 and I have no intention of changing any of them at any point.

Cool, thanks for that. I'm in the Under 5000 club

I've no idea anymore how or why I found this forum but I am glad I did.

I have 8 on my laptop and 7 on my desktop. I also visit both forums daily. I also prefer this forum over the 8 forum for the same reason. The endless love versus hate debates get to be tiresome after a while. Its getting to the point where I almost never go into the news section. The general section is getting bad too. There always seems to be somebody bating somebody else and the thread goes way off topic. I still try to offer tech support over there but its not as relaxing as it is here.

Rarely ever go on 8 forums, you can tell by comparing my post count here and over there. Prefer 7 forum.

Honestly I'm thinking it's to the point where moderators should step in.

Both the forums lack active moderators
