Well , I donít know where to start , itís love and hate. First of all I try it on my Maximus IV Extreme Z, I experience few hang and I have to create a new User Name because the Metro Apps was not working anymore , I will use it only in VM as itís not yet ready for production. I really like the new spelling corrector in IE 10 ( no need to use Word anymore ( as I do with this post ).
I like the new Task Manager , We can mount ISO now with Windows 8, No need for install Adobe Reader ( and their f*** updates) Itís kind of good to have ll the apps in a start page, all true itís not enough configurable for a PC users
What I dislike, Well Microsoft is pushing too far, no start button, now shutdown button (well they have one, but itís quite unfriendly to use) You have to use key shortcuts to avoid the non-friendly layout of everything. Itís not so simple if you are not using Hotmail for your Email.
I understand Microsoft have hard time with the Phone market, their presence in the tablet market is not what they will like to be. But if they insist to keep thing like it is, corporates world will not make the move to Windows 8, Peoples who are not too much computer literate, will not like to use key shortcuts, and they are a lot of peoples in that cases, a lot of peoples who use their PC only for Browse, email and Facebook.
Yesterday when I show Windows 8 to one of my best customer he ask me if it will not be time to switch to Mac, for is business PCs , Why ? ; well is great childrenís use iPhone, iPod, iPad and they like it.
So Microsoft ; we donít want a Phone OS for our desktop, Apple OSX is not a phone OS, So why you want to impose something we donít want ?
Now for you members here; Windows 8 is the worst thing that can happen to us, Microsoft is in the direction to have their entire software host on the Web, and they want us to rent them. So the next step will be small PC that will log on the web to go get not only the software, but probably the OS too, or at least part of it. So itís means that US enthusiast who like to build ROG machines, well, they will not work soon.
Letís talk about the Patriot Act; For me Canadian, itís means that if my info, my documents are host in a Microsoft server ( in the case of office 360 as example ) Well the US government can have a look at it, since Microsoft is a US company. Sorry Microsoft and US gouv. I want to keep my stuff in my PC. Iím not a treat for anyone, so I donít need anyone look at my things.
