Since I just got a computer with Windows 8 on it, I thought it might be good to start a thread with positive things about Windows 8.

I'll start - as soon as I find one! :wink:

I read last week that desktop sales are down and people are blaming it on the fact no one wants to buy a buggy Windows 8. I think I will wait for an improved version. My ancient work desktop better not die now.

There are no good things about windows 8 except one. I have a windows 8 phone and it is more compatible. Otherwise, use the desktop version of windows eight and it almost has all the features. Now that I am used to it (got it in Oct) I am okay but you will have to relearn some stuff. I rarely use the windows eight part, I use the desktop.

It might be better to change this subject to Bad things about Windows 8

Yeah, but that would waste a whole lot of bandwidth!

New Leaked Version of Windows 8.1, Launch Date September
New leaks for Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 operating system have been frequent in the past few weeks, and the latest leaked version of Windows shows us a Windows 8.1 Pro Preview version. Windows 8.1 is expected to bring the desktop and mobile worlds together meaning that secondary OS’ like Windows 8 RT will be scrapped in favour of a unified solution. Windows 8.1 represents the first major overhaul of Windows 8 since its incredibly disappointing release performance – sales of Windows 8 have been very low, and Dell have even blamed Microsoft for their declining financial situation that Windows 8 has apparently caused.

I have yet to find Macs to be worth the cost of switching, and I don't see them working towards what I want.....a good, fast, tablet that runs software not just aps. I want to be able to use financial and tax software on a tablet......a true laptop replacement, not an addition to a laptop. Microsoft is on the right path with the Surface Pro....but it isn't there yet.
