Upgrading to Windows 8??????? NOPE!!
I, for one, am undecided. I've read just about every post/ blog on the "New Windows 8". Other than the new screwy Metro screen, I haven't seen a whole lot of talk about the "under the hood tweaks and just gotta have improvements". What are they? What are they? HELLO! Can anybody elaborate on the "Super Improvements" that I just can't seem to live without??
I did see/ read that in Windows 8 that it "appears" that Windows is trying to lock down the system much akin to Apple. Why? So they can make even more money by selling you the newest to die for "Metro Apps!" Hint! If they give you the OS for peanuts but will rake in gazillion bucks selling you the Metro Apps. How is this a steal?? This reeks of 3 card Monty. It's like dangling the carrot in front of the mule to make it move/ go faster!
Some people claim it boots so fast, that just by thinking about booting it and "Bingo" it's booted. My own "dumb and stupid" read on the upgrade is, it's dumbing down a whole Desk Top OS for a one size fits all OS. For me, "IT DOESN'T FIT!!"
Why do I need a quad core or higher processor to run a dumbed down OS?? Metro to me is TOTALLY DUMB AND STUPID!! "OH, it looks just like my "DUMB PHONE"! Isn't it cute? It looks like being in Kindergarten all over again! Kinda reminds you of Kindergarten finger paintings that dumb Metro screen! YUK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It supposedly does this faster or that faster. Why does it have to keep switching between Metro and the conventional screen? Microsoft appears to be trying to "ram down our throats a new OS(?) whether we want it, like it or not!!"
My own personal opinion is that this is more of a service pack for Windows 7 camouflaged with a new "Metro" screen to make it look like anything but a service pack. It's not a service pack, look it has a new screen so it "Must Be New and improved! WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's hard to charge for a service pack so "Lets put some lipstick on the old pig", now it's new and improved!! Therefore we can now charge "EVERYONE" for it. Ka-ching There goes the MS till bringing in even more money. If the coffers are full we'll just rent more coffers!!!!
Hell, even if they were to give it away for free but you "pay through the nose" for the Metro Apps "they still win"!! Gullible people. EGAD! At the very least, they can run around and say looky, looky, I got me the newest and greatest!
