    Well, Windows 8 has been released last month. Anybody ever try it out? If so, what did you think?

    Me personally, I don't think I like it. They seem to completely stray away from the traditional desktop computers, and focus more on having it be completely based on what you see on tablets. They took away the standard start button, and made it into a customized menu... very similar to what's shown on Windows' tablet devices, and hell even the Xbox 360. I think that direction works better for the tablet devices and everything, but for a PC, I don't think it does.

    So, for now, I think I'm going to stick with Windows 7.

      I always dislike changes in any type of format that offers the same end result. Whether it's Youtube, RetroJunk, Windows, etc. You use your computer to search the web and run programs, why do we need a new way to get to the same end result? Like I don't want to have to circle my mouse around a icon when before all I had to do was click it. That's just something I made up btw, but I think it conveys my point.

        It has pros/cons as every OS newly released. The UI is ok but could've been better I guess. Expanded security/task manager/file history/storage are some pretty good improvements. Still I will give it more time to see if bugs start to mate and colonize.

          Call me old-fashioned, but I'm still using Windows XP.
          There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

          One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

              I don't like change either. I use Widows Vista on my desktop (which I hardly use) and Windows 7 on my laptop. I like all of the apps that it already has and I defiantly see a future with it. My friend has been messing with it since beta testing and loves it. It works much better if you have a touch screen monitor.

                  The guys on GeekWire have been telling pc owners to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro - that version is optimized for desktop and laptop users.

                      I barely got use to Windows 7, and the only reason I got a computer with Windows 7 was because my last one died (with XP).
