What do you think of Windows 8.1?
« on: 30/03/2014 06:05:57 »
Has anyone tried Windows 8 or 8.1? It's horrible. Just as I finally get used to their old system they go and change everything around. The worst thing it has is forcing you to log in even when your computer is at home. The second worst part is that they took the "start"menu out. Then they took out Outlook Express.

Blech!!!

I love windows 8.1 spring update, I use it with start8 which means it looks much like windows 7 only faster.
I am using outlook 2013 express to write this and have no problems with most of my regular programs and with the 32 bit version I can even run the 16 bit software for my 25 year old scanner and printer (with SCSI connection).
suggest a program you can't run and I will make a test with it.
You only need a password if you have a home network then it can be a single letter (my 4 year old neighbour has no problem working it) !
