Die gekke ;) I like it. The desktop side is pretty much identical to Win7 but with more functionality by default (built in Defender, pdf viewer, etc.) and the Modern side is great for consuming simple content.

Well i made win8 look more like win7.. That will do for the mean time :)

Personally I cannot stand the feel of Win 8 and already switched one of my machines to OpenSUSE permanentle, for the other I shall see what Win 9 holds but there is a good chance I go 100% for Linux.

Tbh. there is no rush to switch from Win 7 to 8 as MS will at least provide security updates till 2020.

I can't think of an area where Win7 is better than 8.1.
MrsSekhmet:
Mon Sep 01, 2014 8:07 pm
i have 8.1.. but dammm it's a hard time trying to get win7 on it.. Somehow cannot enter bios to change to startup from usb.. Darnit......

By far the best thing about Windows 8.1 is this app. (Quite possibly a blatant advertisement for my new app).

There are some nice battery saving changes in the new kernel too, it does actually make a difference

8.1 with the animations disabled is a massive improvement, I'd urge you to give it a go. Win7 support isn't going to last forever...

Some of the live tiles are good but the lack of customisation hurts it a lot
Silkie:

8.1 is a step in the right direction. Still an ugly interface for the touch screen part though
Shuriken:
Mon Sep 01, 2014 6:57 pm
I thought I'd hate 8 but I've only used it on touchscreen and it really fits
MrsSekhmet:

gonna install win7 on laptop, i hate win8

Because he's the hero UKCS deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. Our Mr.Ger.

He was a bit of CSMF TBH. Got the manager to do his dirty work which was a waste as the manager was a real engineer and had the respect of the workshop.

I find directors to be better than managers for the most part. Junior directors on the other hand are living examples of how not to human

I had a very bad week and had to deal with something that yet again sprang from his lazy incompetence. Somebody new heard me curse at him and asked if I didn't like him. I then turned my mouth onto 'pit of hades' mode and said how I in fact 'liked' him a WHOLE lot. Then I told them how much and in how I'd like to show him that. In very graphic detail using language littered with medical terms. Ever seen half a dozen grown men actually blush?
Slavechild:
Sat Aug 30, 2014 8:16 pm
Wow what did you say?!?! No offence to anyone who is a director of sorts but a lot of them are a waste of space .. but they make good money sinks for if your business is just making too much money :p
Silkie:
Sat Aug 30, 2014 5:52 pm
It varied. The junior director in charge of things was a complete waste of space. Terrified of me though so I didn't see much of him. I said something very nasty about him when he was in earshot without realising and he took it literally. The other IT bods were fun though.

My favourite was a nice old man who kept his aged computer absolutely pristine in terms of hardware and software, AV and clean of all malware etc. His PSU had popped. I was so moved I wangled a free RAM upgrade for his nice clean PC. Site engineer found a dead mouse in a server.

lol I think everyone's had a cat pee one. Nothing has disturbed me more than the spider nest one

Sat Aug 30, 2014 3:01 pm
Well a guy who choked while half through a happy meal made a nasty old mess and the stench when it was unboxed after going through the post for a few days gave the cat pee one a run for its money. Laptop fell down stairs (again) says claimant. Oh we says? Did it hit a ball peen hammer the same size as the workshop one on the way down? Badger teeth marks were cool though. I wanted to keep the plastics but she bought them back herself.
