[QUOTE=vroom;2735209]Windows *8 runs just fine on my HP mini 110 with an ATOM @ 1.6, 2Gb of RAM and a 500GB WD blue HDD, so for a system that is made in 2009 or 2010 hardware should not be a problem.[/QUOTE]
That’s the handicapp not everyone has a 09 or newer can afford a new computer with limited budget. The O/S isn’t cheap to by and you have to upgrade your hardware to work as well and that all cost money. That’s the elephant in the room.
[QUOTE=vroom;2735209]So if M$ can make win9 a little more litter than win8, and also exclude the stupid metro I’ll be more than happy to move to win9, also win+q and who needs the start menu, and thats from someone that hated win8 when they first came out.[/QUOTE]
I for one use it for my Desktop/Laptops-no touch screen-so dismissing the Start Menu when it had functionality is the reason W8 is selling so bad and well as other things missing from W7.
[QUOTE=vroom;2735209]However I an understand people that have paid for high end hardware and manufacturers didnt want to give update for win8 so that they can force many user to buy new hardware, those people have every right to stay on XP.[/QUOTE]
No, they just go to Windows 7 or find copies of Windows 7 to install and use. Even Vista with all it’s Service Pack is better then W8.
