honestly though they should have included a start menu and boot to desktop feature. you shouldnt have to download those options from a third party.


windows 8.1 (free update) will include both I believe, but the third party add-on (free) took 2 seconds to install.

I just don't think those complaints are major enough to write off the whole OS

I don't see how there is enough improvement from 7 to justify anyone to migrate. Even those users currently with XP are migrating to 7 not 8. The only people migrating to 8 are those who are purchasing new computers, thats a sign you missed your market. People should WANT to move from the last OS to the new one - thats just not happening per the market share #s.

completely agree. I love windows 7. my asus at home is running 7, but this one was 300-400 bucks cheaper if I got it running 8.

also when 1.5 million people download the Pokki app to have a start menu and boot to desktop feature

I signed up. It's not a bad idea although i don't think it will get much traffic.

Not trying to. We have the GB for everything else. It's just to help us sell and trade stuff amongst each other to keep that stuff off of TD since it's not allowed here.

re: Gaming Computer


can you guys read? i didnt say M$ scrapped blue, i said there hasnt been a RC w/ the start menu yet.
your link says blue is confirmed but the start menu is still "rumored" to return. unfortunately you cant find a version out yet with it.
if M$ decides to bring it back that will be a change in thinking and they havent produced a working version of it yet.
