Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Later this year Updated WIN8  Vers 1 can be uploaded FREE.
It alters the present stupid layout and restores the start button and makes it smoother to use. 
At last a bit of sense prevails in Seattle and its not pushed out as a new OS at a hefty price....again. :rofl:
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

I`m sticking with windows 7 on my laptop and base station how ever much they pay me to change .

I just don`t like windows 8 on a non touch screen device !!!!

Bummer that you cannot use it if your set to English (UK) rather than English (US) though.....

i';m still running XP, i tried WIN7 for a wee while but ended up back on XP :smiley:

Get it right - XP sp3; still cr4p compared to Fedora though!

I guess the consensus is to stay on Win 7 if a) you';re happy with it AND b) you';re running a boringly ordinary desktop.  Who has done a desktop upgrade from 7 to 8 and was it as seamless as MS suggest it is?

ChrisH

I got lumbered with 8 after buying a new laptop  :thumbdown:

Wasn';t confident that I';d get all the drivers and apps if I downgraded as they don';t provide discs these days  :angry:

Getting used to it, like anything that introduces changes it takes time.  :whistling:

The 8.1 update seems a move in the right direction, driven by customers not MS.  :smiley:

 Windows 8 sucks big time even some software thats alledgedly meant for win8 dosnt work properly as i found out with cyberlink powerdirector 11 waste of £80.00 now consigned to the bin.
If someone throw's a stone at you throw a flower at them just remember to throw the pot with it.

If it';s stated as being Win8 compatible I wouldn';t give up without a fight. Notify the seller then raise a problem with Cyberlink. Certainly wouldn';t throw £80 away!  :angry:

I have to put up with Win7 x64 at work, we did a quick evaluation of Win8 on a spare machine with all of our usual software - guess what?  half of it refused to work properly........end of (thank heaven)!
Why oh why don';t Dassault Systems port Solidworks to Linux???

win8 is ok, i had it on a laptop but running win7 on this laptop,

tried linux, was complete crap.

win7 still is the most stable, xp really isnt anything great.

win8 is for a play/social machine
win7 is for a work machine
