Is windows 8 That bad?

Chat Forum Talk about topics not related to MapleStory

I'm buying a new prebuilt laptop for about 700, and it has windows 8 on it.
I'm kind of worried though because people are saying that the windows 8 is terrible and bla bla bla.

So is it really that bad? Or should I try to find a computer with windows 7?

I've been using it for months, no problems with it so far.

I hated Windows 8 when I first got it. Thought it was the worst thing, but I got used to it
The controls are confusing at first. It's not so bad once you explore through everything lol

If you really like the laptop, you can buy it and install Windows 7 or if you're not up for that, just find something else.

Just playing a game when suddenly, I PRESS THE FLIPPING START BUTTON AND IT GOES INTO THE MENU AND THEN WHEN I GO BACK ON I FIND MYSELF DEAD.

So yes. It's bad.[/quote]
I read that as "I'm not going to disable Metro or the Windows button so I'll blame my incompetency on something else instead."

OT: W8 is an improvement from W7. If there's a feature of W8 you don't like, you can disable it easily; it's practically W7 but buttmad retards won't stop droning about how "hurr 7 waz best OS."

Big things:
insanely fast boot times (<5 seconds)
better resource management
integrated MSE
improved system recovery
better text/image rendering
better multimedia performance
increased browser performance for both Chrome and FF

Smaller things:
faster file transfers
more minimalistic UI
no more aero
actual multi-monitor support
better start-up screen (and easier password clears)

Literally everything important from W7 was carried over and improved in W8. I've been running W8 for a year; tossed out metro within the first week and I was good to go.

I actually love windows 8 over windows 7. At first, I thought it would be a pain to get used to and stuff, but for me, it really isn't.

I don't have any problems with it except some programs don't have to ability to run smoothly on it. (Photoshop kept flashing to a black screen, and Slender wouldn't work, lol) Other than that, I like it. It's awesome. Have had it for months now.
