It certainly has to be better than Vista!
Of course, I enjoy playing older computer games on my PC(such as Commodore 64 emulated games), and ones such as Doom, Planescape Torment, Ultima VII, etc. Since some of the games are so old, I have to use DOSBox to play them. From what I have heard, it will pretty much be impossible to play games like that on Windows 8(at least XP has a Compatibility option so you can play games in Win 95/98 emulation).
And I just realized that this thread is in the "Mobile Phones" sub-forum. I'm going to move it to a more appropriate one.
If Window 7 is working fine for you, no, I don't think so .
I have W8 on my sh1tty Tosh1tba that is still in the shop, supposedly getting repaired. Hopefully, I 'll be able to use it better if they get the friggin thing fixed up.
I just finally got my glitchy internet connection fixed on my Asus touchscreen with Windows 8. Apparently (this is fling awesome), there is some lame *** hidden setting buried deep within the bowels of your internet connection stuff, that allows your computer to disconnect you from wifi to save power. And it's glitchy. So if it's on, it doesn't matter if you're plugged in or anything, your comp is booting you.
Apparently Microsoft is starting to figure out that the majority of PC users DON'T want the crap they were peddling as Windows 8. Windows 8.1 is supposed to be pretty much like the desktops that users were used to with XP. A Start button for one thing.
I'm surprised she didn't ask you to fix the outlet before you left.
