Not just the trainer issue awhile back but overall it feels like a crap operating system. I tend to love getting my hands on per-release software and breaking them/testing but this is the first time where I just don't want to bother with it at all (not even in a virtual machine).

Sure it's a good interface for tablets but the integration for desktop users is really...bad. If you're on a laptop with a touchpad than best of luck to you. It's not like the style is impossible since GNOME 3 showed that you can integrate that style of user control with their GNOME Shell and get a decent result (not great but at least usable).

Windows 8 will be just like Vista was. The proper Windows will be the one after Win8, just like Win7 was after Vista.

i tend to agree with you neo...operating systems nowadays are going downhill with all the greedy bastards running around...i've seen windows 7 to say the least and tried it a bit...but it's crappier than the good old windows xp

well at any rate i'm not using my pc for god knows what things to require the latest tools (only maybe games if that counts) but even so, the only thing i would have myself get a hold onto a windows 7 (or newer) is maybe for the system requirements of some games

I would actually rate Windows 7 leagues ahead of Windows XP. Windows XP was not designed with PC security in mind and its history around that has been notoriously awful. Windows 7 integrates much needed security practices that other OSes had at the time.

Well thats made my day Neo7 because whatever happens now at my age 64, i will stick hard and fast to my Windows 7 home premium 64bit,i am contented with 7,but i actually believe Windows XP has always been the best (just my opinion)of the Windows series,Vista was a dead loss i feel anyway.

Did you know that if you purchase Windows Ultimate or Professional you also get Widows XP with either of them as well,so i am told by a Techie.

Much needed security. Yet still full of holes. All the corks in Champagne wouldn't be enough to plug them.

Erm, anyway, Windows 8? No thanks. What Loop said is probably the sad truth even though you'll still pay the full price.

i have done alot of work already using windows 8 in regards to our trainers and the kernel and etc. windows 8 is basically windows 7 with a metro table interface added to it so that it can be used with tablet PC and some mobile devices. that's the only differences (although it is a big difference), and the fact that you have to get 'used' to how to get around like you did in windows 7 while inside windows 8. underneath it all it seems to be windows 7 with a tablet wrapper for those who need that.

best,
Cal

I see no reason for another Windows operating system. I used XP for years since it suited my needs. Now I suspect I'll be using 7 for years as well.
