GeneralWindows 8.1... really??? Pin
Michael Bergman22-Jul-14 20:02

I had heard that Window 8.1 is to 8.0 what Windows 7 was to Vista. I took that as a sign of encouragement so I installed Windows 8.1 on a virtual machine to check it out before replacing my Windows 7 OS and, yes, it is indeed marginally better than Windows 8.0. However, the whole "app" interface looks like a throwback to when microprocessors were not capable of preemptive multitasking.

Now, I understand that such an interface is a good fit for a portable device where the screen is limited. But for a home computer with two monitors and no touch screen, it is a pain to work with.

So the question I have is: what am I missing here? Seriously, is there anyone out there using 8.1 on a desktop who really likes it, and why? What are its benefits. Otherwise, I am more than likely to go with Windows Server 2012.

Thanks.
