Quirks with the OS I don't like. There are a few things I do like, but it just isn't mature yet. Finding problems I never saw in 7 like driver crashing randomly for my 580 when it never used to. Merging my server with my PC has been a complete nightmare due to the new admin privilege system being overly anal. I can't really compare it to Vista, because what made Vista terrible was the backwards direction in performance even in SP2 state. So I can't agree with Werty there, but making 8 look like 7 comment I do agree. It is pointless to pay the price to make this OS look the same as 7 when there isn't any real benefit. People talk about boot times and that is the #1 thing I hear. I'm sorry, but like I said in the other thread that is completely irrelevant to anybody with an SSD, especially on laptops. My old setup on Windows 7 booted in 25.6 seconds with an AHCI bios screen to go through and a password. I can't even piss (take a pee if that is bleeped out) that fast or walk 18ft to my fridge to grab a soda. The difference between that and say 11 seconds is the time it takes for me to scratch my balls. So as I said, irrelevant. There is absolutely no real performance benefit to gain from 8 as of right now. Games run absolutely the same as before now with better drivers.
Why So ? It became slower ?
When I will have my laptop back from RMA , i will install Win 8 Pro on my Vertex 4 & will post a video here to see if there is any sluggishness etc.
I tried to mean I only made getting the Start ORB back which was not present in Win 8.The rest of the OS is completely untouched & feels exactly a new OS should.
Sorry I don't know what do you mean by the Public version but as far as i'm concerned , i'm not noticing any problem in the Retail version.But yes , if you feel you are not comfortable using it then it's better to stick to 7.
By public he means consumer preview. What he was saying, was people are buying 8, dropping 5 bucks on Start8, and making Windows 8 look like Windows 7. With no real benefit to using the new OS you are essentially spending 140 bucks for pretty much the same thing with a matte surface. Oh, and a few incompatibilities such as some companies haven't released proper drivers yet. My Xtreme Music wont work right on 8 and I'm sure the rest of the Creative card line doesn't have proper drivers either considering Creative's lack of giving a **** to release proper drivers the instant a new OS comes out.
