Check out this video from Brian Boyko that details how he found Windows 8 to be unusable and even user-hostile when attempting to review the operating system.

When I had some free time to take a look at Windows 8, I realized that I couldn't be impartial. The thing blows, and in this cartoon illustration, I show exactly why.

Take a look below...

I watched this on Ubuntu because I can't face booting up windows 8 anymore to surf the net.

First I have been using MS products since it came out. I liked it better than the CPM I was using. I was a Lan manager with over 5000 pcs. I always promoted MS products because they were good. I load win 8 before it was released. Win 8 came up and I did not know how to get to the desktop. When I got there. there was no intuitive way I could know to go to the upper right hand corner and select anything to find my apps or settings to power off. Like the man said, with over 20 yrs using MS I felt dumb. I use to write MS programs for 20 yrs. There was no manual for win 8 yet. I had to hold classes in how to get around in win 8 to employees that have been using windows for years. If it was so great then why does MS have a free down grade and why has one third of win 8 users load a solution to replace the old menu on the desktop?

This writer is full of negative crap, if He can not understand how to close programs after using the O/S for the time He suggested, He is an idiot. Seems to me He is an i OS preferred brain washed writer and can not see the changes as progress not egress. I agree the design is indeed much changed and presumes a learning curve, this is of course forced on the users because, if they [Microsoft] did not create a new type of way to address the use of the selecting of apps; the i OS company would hall their buts into court and want money for nothing, because they are computer GODS and no one else has any rights or ideas. Overall I submit this article is crap and the writer needs to use a study of sort to get the brain cells He seems to have lost back. When that is done, apologize to the readers for His negative badly done assault on their choice of using Windows 8 and learning how to use it. Windows 8 is not perfect, nor is i OS or any other operating system ever designed.

Face it windows 8 is best use on tablets and windows phone not for a desktop or a laptop.. Especially gaming.. Other people say its worth it some don't.. Personally I preffer 7, not all softwares are updated for windows 8 use, if your the type of person that matters compatibility then don't use 8 but if its fine for you to be hassled sometimes then go ahead, yeah you can still use desktop option on W8 but I find it a bit annoying for some reason. Just stick to being simple yet modern touch.

I think Windows 8 works fine on a laptop. I use it and I have no problem with compatibility. Since Windows 7 and 8 are very similar programs running in Windows 7 won't have a problem working in Windows 8. And if you're a gamer and you use Steam there's an app in the Windows Store that'll pin all your steam games to the Start Screen.
