Fuck windows 8

I fucking hate windows 8. I Dj and I use a program called serato. It is not at all comparable with windows 8. Neither is any of my production software. My laptop died and I am trying to use my wife's new liter and I can't do anything. Ahhhh. And I have several friends that work at Microsoft who keep telling me to just put 7 on the new lappy. Well I just paid 800 bucks for the damn thing. I shouldn't have to buy new software because Microsoft puts out shot that doesn't work.


Anyone else having problems with this piece of shit OS

So don't buy it... pirate it. Solved my win8 problems. Or, if you prefer not to pirate, find someone with a college email address and it's dirt cheap.

It isn't Microsofts fault, it's the developers fault.

My personal laptop is on Win7 but my mom recently got Windows 8. Usually I'm all on board with the latest and greatest but I really don't like that OS.

I have Windows 8 - no problems. I updated my laptop and got the i7, tons of ram, and a SSD. This thing flies. I just did some maintenance on it..... CC cleaner, virus defs, etc..... so far so good. No complaints.

I mean, Windows has been stupid since inception. It is what it is......

This.

Software developers have had plenty of time to adjust their product for Windows 8, and anyone who hasnt bothered is just slacking. Dont blame Microsoft for trying to advance computing; there comes a time where backwards compatibility is no longer possible.

Its like owning a Snurfer and blaming binding manufacturers for not coming with a binding plate compatible with your deck

I agree. Windows 8 is a joke. A big piece of shit fucking joke. You can't make something less user friendly. I love being in the middle of a program and have the screen disapear on me 25 times. The photo program is a joke. They seriously fucked this one up. I've never considered going mac as much as I am right now.
