Has anyone here switched to Windows 8?
« on: October 23, 2012, 08:18:32 PM »
Hello fellow TalkPhil-ers!

Before I decide to officially switch from Windows 7 to 8, if anyone here has tried and used the new system, I'd like to hear from you!

I'd like to know about the known issues and problems with Windows 8 since I'm interested in developing Windows 8 applications. If it sounds interesting to you, you can check it out here:

Hope to hear from you! Thanks!

Still getting the hang of it. It sucks that they removed the Start button.

nagkaproblema FB video chat ko sa upgrade sa 8.1, badtrip. Sabi sa nabasa ko, it's not just an update, it's an entirely new OS. hayyys.

If you switch to windows 8/8.1 you'll get the benefits of having lots of app via windows store. For software developers,  you can cope up with the latest developer tools used nowadays especially win 8.1. Your PC will also perform at its best with win 8/8.1 installed, been there done that, win7 sucks. Solid aesthetics all the way to keep you inspired working. At the end of the day, it's up to you if you make the switch. But as for me, I'll recommend switching to the latest  :)

P.S. Please check you PC/laptop first kung kaya ba ng specs. Yung mga luma minsan di kaya and di supported ung ibang hardware. Yung dell laptop ko 2011 medyo pahirapan nung una pero okay na. hahaha.  8-)
