I've had it for 2 months, I quite like it now. It took me a week or so to get used to all the changes from Windows 7, but now I see no issues. I think games actually run better on Windows 8 than 7/Vista, I have had no issues with programs and compatibility, even with games which I couldn't get to work on 7.

I don't see why people seem to be hating on Windows 8; I'm fine with it.

I've had W8 for quite a while now and samerton kinda influenced me to change from Vista to W8 and I have no complaints at all.. There is hardly anything changed apart from the Start Menu which has changed into its own window. I think this is very nice and it isn't hard to get used to it.

If you want to find out which programs are compatible with W8, just look here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/win8/CompatCenter/Home?Language=en-US

Here's the start you asked didn't ask for:

Note: it's only on my small screen so not as much of the start menu is shown as there may be.

The start screen doesn't work well with smaller monitors either. You have to scroll to see the whole thing, which I find a little on the annoying side. I think it has great potential, but just doesn't feel consistent enough for me.

I think it's a mistake for them to remove something that was very functional and replace it with something way uglier Razz

I personally don't like it myself, its just something else to get used to. I think it would work out well for tablets, but not a desktop computer. If I must use windows 8, i'd be willing to though (because I don't like vista or 7 either :p)

also, hello guys.

Yea, I've seen some friends with it. I haven't played with it myself, though. May mean a trip to Future Shop... Razz
It looks cool, but the common complaint is no start menu in the normal sense... though some are saying they get used to it fast.

Seeing as I've only been using W7 for about a year, I'm probably not upgrading soon... Razz

I think I'll wait for Windows 9 - every other Windows is the good one. It goes good/bad, good/bad. So this is the bad one testing for Windows 9.

Plus it's focused on tablets and touchscreens and I have neither.
