    What's so bad about 8.1? It's an OS, it operates your system.
    I guess if you like tablet operating systems on power computers.

    Just not my thing.

    No, that's why I use desktop mode. That knock on Windows 8 doesn't apply post 8.1 IMO. As a long time user of 7, I don't understand the hate on 8.1.

    Is there any advantage for 8.1 over 7? All the gaming benchmarks I see are within margin of error between 7 and 8.1.

    I have a W8 pro with Media Center box that I don't plan to upgrade to non-Media Center W10 ever. I never clicked the W10 upgrade icon in the trey, yet windows update showed a few failed "upgrade to Windows 10 Pro"s
    so I uninstalled the KB3035583, but forgot to "hide" it
    next day: more failed W10 upgrades, icon is back, click on it, it says "your upgrade is reserved" WTF!!!!
    uninstall and hide KB3035583, icon gone
    still getting failed 'upgrade to W10' in update history...

    No, not really. Nothing I can think of off top at least. But a ton of people think it's cool to say it sucks, but you ask them why they think that and they can't give you a reason that makes sense

    Only if you run it on a tablet. On a desktop, I feel the experience is actually tier. Microsoft probably does too, tbh... that's why Windows 10 introduced a switch between Desktop and Tablet mode, which is something that made absolute sense for 8, but didn't have it.

    Pretty large difference with the functions I use.

    I prefer XP, 7 is pretty good. 8, 8.1, X.... all three really suck.

    You have to remember Johnny-come-late Ballmer was running the company then. I agree with hater, they saw the iPad taking off and didn't know what the to do.

    So Ballmer decided to make their flagship product ty in response. Oh well, still a better UI than Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 at least.

    Because all he ever gave a about was the stock price. So when everybody was buying up iPads and Android tablets, and analysts started wondering if Microsoft was being left in the dust, he had to rush some tablet-gimmick out the door to rescue the stock.

    Everybody will tell you Windows 10 is what Windows 8 should've been. And if you're a desktop user, the re-introduction of a desktop mode doesn't change anything for you compared to Windows 7.

    I heard terrible things about it, but at least there's some workarounds. Here's how to disable Cortana with this update:

    It's a cross-platform API that would allow me to play games on Linux instead. Games are the only reason I use ty Windows on my PC.

    It's more like a lightweight alternative for DirectX or OpenGL. Though OpenGL is awesome too since games written with it usually have ports to Linux. I'm surprised though to see Doom 2016 isn't on Linux yet considering it has OpenGL and Vulkan support. I'm guessing it should get there though within the next few months. The one thing going for Vulkan is Valve should be pushing it hard since it's the only thing that can make their SteamOS a success (SteamOS is just Linux with a nice frontend to make it look like a console OS).

    Doom 2016 has had some enormous improvements in its performance on AMD cards with Vulkan. Come to think of it, AMD is going to be pushing Vulkan hard too. It helps cover up how bad their drivers are for DirectX11 and OpenGL (though they're very good for DirectX12). And since AMD hardware runs the XBox One and PS4 as well as the upcoming XBox Scorpio, PS4k, and PS VR they might be able to get developers on board. It would be a real kick in the nuts to both Nvidia and Microsoft to see Vulkan get big.
