This whole thing with half of the programs being "apps" and half of the programs being regular programs is rather infuriating. If I open an "app", I can't quickly and easily close it. There's no x or minimize button. I have to move the mouse up to the right hand corner and find the correct "app" window and right click on it, then click close. Also, it wants to take up either all, half, or none of the screen. I want to resize it to how big I want it to be.

WHY THE HELL DO PROGRAMS NOT WORK IN A UNIFORM MANNER?!?!? Put the "apps" on the taskbar like regular programs or put programs in the upper right hand menu thing. This is just retarded.

Windows 8 I probably will never try. I went from XP to 7, and will probably go from 7 to 9 whenever that comes out. Windows 8 just seemed like too much of a consolation to mobile devices that it just doesn't fit with the desktop experience.

I was thinking about putting windows 8.1 on my secondary rebuild I am about to do. Keys are bringing 25 bucks right now for pro (so I can use 32gb ram)

I think it will be fine once I make the UI like win 7~

To close an app, drag it from the top of the screen to the bottom.

Also, the difference between the two is interesting if you think about it. Microsoft tried to combine two experiences into one machine. The tablet-esque (think iPad) experience, and then an actual functional computer, that you could be productive on. The Metro and the apps are tablet orientated, and the desktop is traditional windows. There is definatly something to be desired in the execution of this intent, but I do like the idea.

I still stand by the notion that a lot of the Windows H8 comes from it being different, and general misunderstanding of how to use it. Since I have learned how to use it, and am comfortable with keyboard shortcuts, I can navigate the OS with ease, and find a lot of it's features pretty slick.

Yeah, we figured out how to close it.

I see what they are trying to do with the tablet/computer thing, but man it just doesn't work smoothly.

Pick one way or the other and make it uniform...or wait until you have a complete solution instead releasing a halfway OS.

I for the most part like 8.1- but think 9 will clear up most of the confusion and ire.

The part I put in bold is really the biggest implementation flaw that 8.x has had since launch. Sure, you can scour around to get a full run through of transitioning from 7 or xp, but they should have rolled in a way better tutorial showing side by side functionality between the 7 desktop on 1 side and how to achieve the same thing on 8 right next to it.

Even an option of dissolving functions- showing the old method to do something that would cue a reminder pane with a quick video showing you how to do the same thing within 8. After a while, the new method would be remembered, and the user could right click on the old method feature to dissolve its use going forward and use the new version 8 implementation.

They simply did a terrible job of presenting the UI with a thought out manner of getting people up to speed and at ease with working with the new environment.

As you should be. I'm seriously considering by a copy of Windows 7 for $175.00 for a desktop that cost $450.00

I agree. M$ should have offered some more thorough tutorials, or even better, right from release a toggle setting.

Toggle ON = Use Metro with touch features enabled. Works great for all touch screen devices, and is really what the Metro is designed for.

Toggle Off = Windows 8 uses a traditional style of look and feel with a desktop and start menu.

If they would have just done that, half of the problems would have been solved. Why touch screens are here to stay, not everyone have or had them at the time of release. M$ should have given their customers the choice of how to run the OS for the device they had.

I swear the biggest fail at M$ is their marketing department, they just suck, and always have. A really big reason why Apple is so successful is their marketing,
