Why do people hate Windows 8 so much? I've used it before, and to me it's amazing!



Call me old fashioned, but I don't want my interface to look like that - it looks, for lack of a better term, too childlike, akin to some of the child protection software of the 90s where it created an 'safe' interface over the OS to keep kids out of dangerous things. And some of the network functionality has caused -massive- headaches for me and my company. A basic network connection should not require 'pro' anything.

Further more, you can't easily tweak it. Hell, even the 'Windows 7' interface program doesn't fix most of my issues - it allows more control, but you still have the network issues and the inflexibility in dealing with certain things.

Granted, you have some of that in Windows 7 as well, but it's substantially more tech/IT friendly for many things - I don't need to pay more to get what is a basic functionality with windows 7 home basic, for example.

Much like Vista before it, Windows 8 is just too restrictive on too many levels. And 8.1 is worse. And the interface, though simple, reminds me of a smart phone - not what I want my computer to be like.

App looks pretty cool!

Why are you guys hijacking this poor guys thread? This isn't a Win 8 debate. It's also pretty obvious you guys haven't actually used recent iterations of the 'OS!! very outdated statements. It looks almost exactly the same as Windows 7. Get with the times!

My apologies. Much like the mac vs windows debate, or any other POV debate, it can get pretty heated.

And I have used some fairly recent builds of the OS. I just had a new laptop (made in the last year) that had the most recent version of windows 8 on it.

It did not look like windows 7. But I digress. I'm prone to rambling. Windows 8 obviously works wonderfully for you, and that's fine. But I'm sticking with windows 7.

This is an interesting idea, its just too bad its for windows 8.


You have no idea how much I hear this sort of thing about Windows 8 from customers.

Well they're going to have to switch over sooner or later..?? :)

Cool concept for an App though...

In a word: yes! :)

I've been considering posting the source on GitHub, just haven't really put a lot of thought into it. Seems like maybe the times have overtaken me!
