The Entire thing about Windows 8
I bought my laptop in June and they said when I bought it that I would be able to Upgrade my laptop to Windows 8 for $14.99. so I did it. When Windows 8 came out everyone said that it's a great Operating System, so i decided to upgrade my laptop. When i first upgraded it was so annoying, because there is no start button, so i got so frustrated, but i was able to find a way to get a start button and then everything was getting much easier. One day my laptop started getting very very slow, so I had to call up my laptop company for them to try to help me fix it which they weren't able to fix it over the phone. And then all of the sudden all of my information was getting lost and not working, so i called the company back and had to get all the way up to a case manager which i was hoping for them to get me a new laptop, because it was the second time my laptop was broken in the summer. But the case manager was telling me that i have to downgrade to Windows 7, so i had to get my recovery discs and start doing it, but it stopped in the middle of doing it, so i called my case manager tells me that i have to send my laptop in for repair. Oh and then he tells me that my computer wasn't made for Windows 8 which i told him that it was, because that was part of the package when i bought my laptop in June.
Basically what i'm trying to say is that Windows 8 SUCKS AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!!!!! Windows 8 is really meant for a tablet and a touchscreen computer/laptop. NO ONE SHOULD BUY WINDOWS 8!!!!!!!!
I have to disagree with you about Windows 8 though. I've had no problems using it as the main OS on my desktop without a touchscreen. It's fast and stable. I'll admit the lack of a Start button takes a bit of getting used to. What I did was start using the Metro screen as my start button. My most used apps are there in categories and it scrolls extremely well with my mouse. In fact the Windows button on my keyboard, which used to open the start button, opens the Metro screen. I would recommend that if you are a Windows user you try Windows 8 again on a different laptop.
