GeneralTechnology need changes and Darwin said the same Pinmvp_ Kunal Chowdhury _23-Oct-12 7:39 
Yes, you are right. As in real world we need changes to live in this world, similarly we need changes in Technology front (even in OS) and opt-out it. Windows 8 brings a new styled OS in Microsoft platform and people should adopt it. Believe me guys, I am using it since it was first released publicly and it improved a lot in the RTM, which I am using for more than a month.
 
For the first time user, it is difficult to use it as it is missing the Start menu but after few days you will like it definitely. The performance that I noticed in Windows 8 is far far better than the previous OS (at least IMO).
 
Does any one has any other opinion on that (+ve or -ve)?
