    I like the modern UI implementation and all of the improvements Windows 8 and 8.1 made over 7 a lot.

    Im using windows 8.1 now for 5 weeks and my verdict is it's not difficult to use but there is no logic in the whole system. Windows 7 i still like alot more.

    I just hope windows 9 is back to old desktop and **** this whole charm tiles metro system it;s un logical in use and stupid.

    Oh all who claim windows 8.1 is alot faster also lie about that, its maybe fraction faster i have maybe 1 sec win to desktop over my win7 install 5 weeks ago.

    Benchmarks are almost same not much gain there little faster.

    Give me windows 7 any day over windows 8.1.

    But have to do with win 8.1 for now, i just hope windows 9 will be for desktop users again.

    Microsoft are really doing some amazing things these days. Reworking menus and charms bars. Must take years to figure out how to do these things, decades. Really moving in leaps and bounds.

    I know I'll be in the minority, but as a desktop user and Windows 8.1 user - I'll be pretty pissed if they don't at least allow desktop users the choice of using the Modern UI.

    I much prefer the Modern UI over the standard desktop start menu from Windows 7, i do like the look of the proposed new Start menu (the one that combines the old menu with tiles from the new one), but i really do want to keep the full Modern UI as i really do prefer it.

    They really should have had the choice to use the Windows 7 style menu in Windows 8/8.1, and i really hope they've learned their lesion in giving OPTIONS!.

    this..

    annoying for companies as well. they worked to get things working on 8/8.1 and year later have to do it again.:bang:


    at lest let 8.1 mature some.


    it like hiring a new person and training them and then replacing them as soon as they trained.

    heres hoping maybe windows 9 will be free or discounted.

    because not every one is going to be willing to shell money over when they just bought a windows 8 machine or license.

    Microsoft makes that old saying

    "worked like a charm" sound like something you should be RMAing.

    I used Win8.1 for a couple of weeks before going back to Win7 and the thing I disliked most was the charms that kept popping up even when i had turned off most of them.

    If Microsoft have got to have charms why don't they stick them on the right mouse click under a sub menu where they won't bother me.

    I hope MS has learnt to keep the OS lean, to always retain tried and successful interface like the traditional desktop layout. If they want to push radical new UI/layouts then make it available but OPTIONAL. Then run stats to see if it is widely used enough to be considered popular or success. Take customer feedback seriously, make the changes we want and we will happily throw money at you.

    MS you don't tell us what we like. WE tell you what we like. You make what we like, we buy. Was that hard to understand at all?

    And nothing will change for your 2 licenses of 8.1, they're not removing it from 8.1

    Like the charms bar, keep 8.1, simplez

    Dunno why people are whining about them removing stuff from an unreleased version of windows

    If you had a car with air conditioning, and the manufacturer announced they were going to release a new version of it without air con, would you whine on about that?

    It doesn't affect your current car (OS) keep using it and don't use the new one if you hate it so much

    The same idea works for Win7 users. If you like the UI, keep Win7. For some reason, that idea seemed to piss off Win7 lovers.....
