    Dinosaurs?? People I help vary from young gen to older gen. It's not just a certain age group lol. You are right though! It is more stable and faster. Stable and faster doesn't mean anything to a person if they can't use it though. Yes I can be stubborn and proud of it lmao! But the product speaks for itself when people don't want it or use it. You can't just change the whole GUI on people and say here it is deal with it. Now you have thrown something out there and now people feel like they have to go take a night class to learn how to use windows again.

    Guys guys, this is a phone thread. Not a computer OS thread. Please don't stray too far off topic.

    However,now that we've ventured into this, everything still works the same. Control panel is still there, all the programs you used to have are still there, maybe even better than before. Windows 8.1 has an option to boot to desktop by the way. In addition to all the cool features, like OneDrive integration and Windows Store Apps, I actually find iy useful to snap my Xbox music app, my Word document, and possibly even a Netflix movie in there Besides, all you ignorant people that think Windows 8 was "thrust" upon you, no one asked you to upgrade.

    But really, there's no need to actually, "go to school" to learn the OS. If plain desktop is all you want then so be it.

    Really?? Show me a new computer besides a custom that you can by off the shelf at a store what doesn't have Windows 8 or 8.1 on it! You have no choice unless you pay the premium for pro to be able to downgrade. So take your so called "ignorance" somewhere else! Smh

    Ever heard of dell or bestbuy? They still offer Windows 7 premium pc's. I know because I checked yesterday. Please do try to do your research first.

    This is a WP thread, so end of discussion on the computer OS please.

    Well, you're paying for a computer... Of course it'd be a bit expensive.

    Take my money! Lol jk. I bet I could eventually find a cydia tweak to allow me to do that. But then again, that's probably apples next move. Updating Siri when IOS 8 comes out.

    As I said before, what does an IPhone have that a WP doesn't? Especially with the 8.1 updates, this phone ends up being pretty sweet. *o*

    I beg to differ as well. All of my phones have been iPhones, and I've been working on computers since I was little. I also can code decently in Lua and Objective-C....soon to be going to university for computer science. Don't just assume that anyone who uses an iPhone is illiterate, that just shows how illiterate you are for being narrow-minded.

    Windows 8 was never ment for desktops. It was designed as a mobile OS for tablets and cellular phones with touchscreens. Windows 8 on a desktop is very tedious to use.

    Windows 9 *supposedly* will be brining back the start menu function, so we can expect a lot of people (including myself) to be upgrading.

    ...or you could just downgrade it yourself. It's time consuming, but if you know what you're doing you can make it happen.
