3.0 out of 5 stars How to handle W8 April 18 2014
There is a free utility program called 'ClassicShell' that when installed gives a Windows 7 likeness to the Windows 8. Highly recommend it. You can at will change back to 8 whenever you have the time to try and figure out 8, and then revert back to the 'ClassicShell' whenever you want.

Je viens d'installer mon Windows 8, à partir duquel j'écris présentement. Mon avis?

Utiliser mon PC comme un téléphone intelligent, ab-so-lu-ment gé-nial!

J'ai installé des applications à partir du Windows Store comme je l'aurais fait sur un téléphone, dont Skype pour Windows 8, le dictionnaire Larouse (<9,00$) et les Têtes à claques. Simple et hyper amusant à utiliser.

Le menu démarrer est remplacé par une page d'accueil à tuiles. Pour avoir une idée du genre, c'est la même page que celle des Windows Phone. C'est un peu frustrant sur le coup, car j'ai le réflexe de vouloir ouvrir mes applications en ouvrant le menu démarrer, qui n'existe plus!

Mais à l'usage, ce menu devient complètement inutile. La page d'accueil est très flexible et les tuiles des applications que j'installe s'ajoutent automatiquement à droite de la page. Si je ne les veux pas dans ma page d'accueil, je n'ai qu'à les détacher. Je peux les ré-épingler facilement accédant à une page qui affiche toute les applications et en cliquant sur l'option "Épingler à l'écran d'accueil" de l'application voulue.

Le bureau est toujours présent avec sa barre de tâches, mais sans le menu démarrer bien sûr. La fonction alt-tab fonctionne toujours pour basculer d'une tâche à l'autre. Les applications classiques y roulent comme à l'habitude, avec des fenêtres à dimension variable.

La page d'accueil vient par défaut avec des applications intégrées à internet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Windows upgrade or downgrade? Jan. 11 2013

After a month of using this OS on and off, I can say that I don't really like it. Much prefer Windows 7 (which I'm using now). I've set up double boot to try Win 8 and so far, not impressed, maybe I'm missing something, but I'm using a computer, not a tablet or phone...and I find the old way better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to see it.. Jan. 1 2013

I've heard and read a lot of good thing and much more bad thing. For me, I'm not yet sure it has what it take for a desktop, maybe service pack will add the missing feature (such as start button). But it installed without any problem, and run as well. But yet, when you need to do lot of multitasking, with many windows open, I'm not sure. To simply do internet stuff, and simple work, then it might work for you.
