In other words, instead of alleviating the problems facing PCs – no reason to buy – Windows 8′s increased complexity added a reason not to buy. That was certainly the case in my family: in early 2013, when my father asked me for advice on a Windows computer, I found myself advising him to seek out Windows 7. Were he to have had a suitable computer, I likely would have advised him to do nothing at all.
I have avoided Win 8 like the fucking plague of ages. I’ve not heard one good thing about it yet.
Vista and Seven still work amazingly well.
Seven is what Vista should have been, NGL.
ive had no problem finding companies that’ll build you a pc and install windows 7
I still don’t understand the Windows 8 hate. Yeah, the Metro interface sucks for PCs, but it’s easily disabled. I never see it. I boot to desktop and launch everything from my desktop.
I don’t have one valid issue with Windows 8. It’s fast, efficient, and lightweight. Windows 7 was bloated as shit.
well I had a lot of trouble navigating to even find the control panel, let alone navigate the control panel itself. A lot of times the tablet like xbox interface thing would pop up and I would get very angry. Ultimately it’s just a lot of shit that wasn’t broken getting changed.
Also, when I looked windows explorer was taking up almost 2 gigs of RAM. Woah.
I would never call Windows 7 bloated. Compared to 8? Maybe, but 7’s a massive improvement in that area over previous Windows OS’, especially Vista.
Plus if you put Windows 7 on a SSD and it’s about as fast a boot-up as Windows 8.
