So apparently Windows 8.1 will be Windows Blue... which is also leaked onto the interwebs :O

Yeah Windows Blue was the codename for Windows 8.1, which will be released as an update for Windows 8 and Windows RT later this year (August I believe)

I'm calling BS on this, not only sre they using us for beta testing thus saving money, they're also tracking IPs and creating data on people stealing their software and who aren't likely to buy 8.1.

Windows 8 is fine.  Install Classic Shell and there is nothing wrong with it.

i prefer 8 myself, ITS THE RIBBON IN EXPLORER!

 

I also like the whole "square" look

 

 

I hate it when people make stupid and unreasonable comments about 8 but there is a bit of a learning curve there especially with the default setup. Its usually the people who haven't tried it.. and just regurgitate the same cries from any half baked writer from any half arsed tech site. Its not for everyone but ffs it gets annoying when people repeatdely cry over the same thing.

 

 

Windows 8 can be frustrating and is definitely not for everyone, I don't recommed it at all BUT its nowhere near as bad as suggested by many.

Search wasn't as well implemented as 7 in the start menu (mainly with searching the control panel)

 

Also turning off/sleep/hibernate was a nightmare of hoops.

 

Two very important features, messed up. the rest seemed good though

I'm not sure about the control panel search but the start screen search is wank.
