Is MS heading for a disaster with wins 8 with all the problems people are encountering especially installation on desktops? Why do MS relase these incomplete OS's. Vista was the same. Wins 7 is proving to be the most stable to date along with XP.
Personally I think it was a mistake to move this thread to the windows 8 help forum.
It's not a request for help in connection with windows. It's a comment on Microsoft and a (brief) comparison with other MS o/s's.
I'm not a windows 8 user, and so have no real reason to visit this forum. In fact if I hadnt seen this thread in speakers corner first, then tried coming back to it just now I never would have visited this forum. Some may view it as finally getting someone to come here, but thats not how I view it.
Put simply : are we not allowed to discuss windows 8 in speakers corner?
I have install Windows 8 on 3 laptops. One is a little net book used by the kids,one is a 4 year old Dell Latitude I use when traveling on business,and the other is a year old HP 64 bit I have connected to a 22 inch monitor in my office at home. All have office 2010 installed,and all work fine,faster than Window 7.All have Win8 start button installed so its like working with Windows 7 with more,but faster.I even have 7(Vista)desktop gadgets installed on the two larger laptops.There is nothing wrong with 7,but 8 is faster.I think if Microsoft were to release an update with start button everyone would be happy.
