[QUOTE=blegs38552;2669761]Looks like I am the first to agree with her.
I was a beta user (Preview…etc) for a while, but have to admit that, like everyone in the above, I spent most of my time on the desktop while occasionally playing with the Start screen. Then I bought and upgraded to the Professional 64 bit version (at $69.00 for the CD at Amazon along with a $30.00 promotional credit, it was a no brainer). [/QUOTE]
Yeah agree with her the desktop is where most work is done less you forget not all programs are made for touch screen and plus that doesn’t address the underlying problem of software incompatibility to start.
[QUOTE=blegs38552;2669761]I now find myself living on the Star screen. I have put all of the tiles for my frequently used application (apps or Windows programs) on the far left, where they are quickly available to me (even when I remote from my Win 7 laptop which is every day)…and yes, the Computer title still occupies the top left position (it is cool when you right click, you get the same options as on the desktop). I even added a Recycle Bin tile. Haven’t figured a way to add Control Panel, but that can easily be selected from the Win+X menu (if you haven’t tried this, you really should - quick access to many Windows power user’s tools). You can also get to Control Panel by clicking on the Computer tile (or desktop icon) - it is right there on the ribbon (oh, that’s right, some of you hate the ribbon too).[/QUOTE]
Yeah like I want to scratch up my desktop screen every few months and replace it…Not going to happen. Just think the Ipad thought to be only for finger usage now come with a Keyboard and Mouse…how ironic it was suppose to replace those very two useful items for computing.
[QUOTE=blegs38552;2669761]Hate to disappoint you Microsoft haters and enemies of progress and change, but I cannot see myself ever going back. I would consider upgrading my laptop, except that it is so easy to access my Win 8 desktop from Windows 7 RDP. I even have a batch file that wakes my desktop up from Sleep mode and connects me to it.[/QUOTE]
Actually there aren’t hater but those that actually used the W8 and tossed it out and since your willing to use the word “Hater” it only leads me to believe you already thought most were haters before even knowing their experiences thus making your reply just mutt. To call other names or “hater” exposes your true character and that you offer no real substance to the discussion.
[QUOTE=blegs38552;2669761]Six weeks should do it for the average user - power users should get there faster, if they want to.[/QUOTE]
Mine was less then a week and back to windows 7. Hate to burst your bubble but it hasn’t been received well…I have more important financial matter and personal things that need be done on computer and the more time I waste fixing W8 the more time and money I loss. That is in no interest of anybody public or business…
