First of all, thanks for the ads.

Love em.

More please?

Second of all, this ad says "Looks like Windows 7. Performs like 10." So what ad do they show for people with windows 8? "Looks like Windows 7. Performs like 10"?

Thoughts on this recent onslaught of ads, and/or my specific thought, andor/ hot bitches?

Microsoft has ****ed the pooch so hard in the last five years what with the failure of the xbone and windows 8.

**** more people use XP than they do windows 8, if I was in charge of marketing I'd slap the shit out of the entire staff after seeing the user interface.

After using 8 many times before, I still don't like the interface either.

I think getting lots of people to dislike 8 and making people more dependent on 7 was sort of the plan all along. Microsoft will inevitably stop supporting 7 with their security updates like they've already done with XP, so those people who still use 7 now will be forced into buying copies of 10. The more people they make dependent on 7, the more billions of dollars Microsoft make when they stop supporting it.

Or we could switch to mac, if microsoft really wants to sink their ship.

When I got it on my win8 laptop it just told me to reserve a download of win10, that was it.

And honestly that was enough, just like "here's your free ticket away from this shit, you gonna take it?"

8 works well on tablets and stuff like that, it also boots up 5x faster than 7 which is cool. 8.1 is really not as bad as people say

Except the giant hole in your theory is Microsoft is giving out free copies of 10 to every 7 and 8 user already.

Also if you hate windows 8 so much just download the windows 7 start menu. The windows 8 interface isn't that complicated unless you're an old geezer, I like windows 8.

ive only used win 8 for a few minutes, didnt really get a chance to get used to it but all of my friends who actually use it regularly say it's not even a big deal and that most people are just butthurt out of herd instinct
#15
That would be correct. I bet half the people who hate it haven't even used it.

I've been using 8.1 for over a year now and much prefer it to 7.
It took like, an hour to figure out how everything worked (after upgrading from XP, actually).

Also, what is an ad?

Yeah if you switch to the desktop it's really similar. I like how I can designate desktop view for work and tile view for fun

Have been using 8 and 8.1 on my Surface and I've had 7 on my laptop for ages. Frankly they're both fine once you get used to them.

I still have a functional Win98 SE too.

8.1 is OK. Non-touch interfaces don't really seem to have been considered for most it the design phase, so it's not great if, like me, you primarily use a granddad box.

Yes, because there have only been 20+ versions of the Mac OS, and an uncountable number of linux iterations.

I'm a fan of all of them for different reasons, but to imply that one is somehow magically "better" than another is a fanboy myth.

I've had no issues with windows 8.1, I like it quite alot. The move to Windows 10 for me will be a lateral one. Took only about an hour or two to figure it out mainly. Still learning little tricks for it now.
Also for me including my 5 second post delay it takes 23 seconds to boot up. Another 15 seconds after login to start up all its 'run-onstart' programs.
1 minute from doing jackshit to fully operational doesn't seem like a long boot up to me.

It's only gotten faster since I've installed an SSD and put all OS files and 'mission critical' shit on it.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

Even if I accepted that at face value, so what? (I don't because there's no such thing as "the unix filesystem", but even if we're talking about ext4, there are still several areas where NTFS beats it. Maximum file and volume sizes as an example.)

What benefit does it provide to the hundreds of millions of average users? Yeah, none.

For one, the ability to reliably restore and repair files in a very simple manner. Most Windows users however have foregone hope of this long long ago.

It's more like "It looks like Windows 7 and 8 had a baby" rather than "looks like windows 7"

I like the Windows Vista and 7 interface. I don't this new blocky look thing they had going on with Windows 8 and 10.

You can just not use that page in Windows 8/8.1. My configuration never shows it at all. The windows key just brings up the list of programs installed.

I'm a little excited for Windows 10. I've really liked 8.1.

Which filesystem, specifically, are you discussing? Because as earlier noted, "unix filesystem" isn't a thing.

Yea I wasn't talking about disk file system.

In Unix, every aspect of the OS down to the kernel level is represented by a file that can be directly accessed and edited. If a core OS component breaks, it is extremely easy to restore or repair. Not so with Windows.

Again, not a significant benefit for Joe User. Geeks like us can argue these types of things, but they simply don't matter to most of the planet.
