Windows 8 is a pain in the butt!

Cons: Design, Performance, Expensive, Difficult to Use
All Windows 8 does is make it harder to get to what you already have! The 1st review is correct too---you have to join MS and Xbox to play certain games but not all of them. I just don't understand why there has to be so many steps to use your windows on your desktop or laptop. I am going to replace Windows 8 with windows 7 because at least it works right and you can access all your files easily!

It's pretty good

I tried out the preview copy for a while and decided to buy it at the lower price for my netbook. Works great on that. Bought another copy for another pc I want to upgrade. I wanted at two more for other pc's but am not paying the higher price so I guess those will just stay as is.
I am curious as to if the retail stores sold a lot of these because if I had to say that if they didn't sell at the lower price, what makes Microsoft think that it's gonna sell at the higher price. I won't buy any more copies unless they offer back at the lower price.
If anyone is at the point of upgrading, you might as well just buy a newer pc with this already installed. Not worth to buy just to upgrade an older pc at the higher price.
I did install this on an Acer Aspire One it really made a performance boost. Even places Netflix very smooth.
Good luck everyone.

This is all smoke and mirrors

Cons: Design, Performance, Expensive, Build Quality, Difficult to Use, has hidden cost
What MICROSOFT fails to tell the consumer, prior to purchase, is a lot! Example, My Laptop had a excellent cd/dvd player/burner. Could burn my own music, watch dvds, also could watch from like Netflicks, and through Comcast. just about anything. Now with WINDOWS 8, in order to use, what I used before...for free; Now I have to Pay fees to Microsoft, and x-box There apparently is some additional dvd's that I can purchase, but WHY WOULD I!!! Unfortuantely, I found out too late. I am actually thinking about dumping Windows 8, and going back to 7.....And Windows8 keeps on doing temporary crashing! Thank the computer gods at NORTON! BEWARE!

Windows 8

Great program! Easy install, though it takes a long time. This is not a revised Win 7! This is a completely new program with different ways of doing things. Some I like and some will take more time to get used to. If you dig long and deep enough you will discover ways to navigate very similar to the way you did in Win 7. If I try enough new features I may find it is easier and faster than previous versions. There are a lot of features I have not even looked at so I have much to learn. So far, I like it.

Microsoft Windows 8 Pro Pac

Another Microsoft product to baffle the customer. The product does not load and fails to recognize the product key code. Hours of phone calls for tech support.
