Ratings and reviews

Rated 2 out of5 by fromGood OS/Terrible experienceNot easy to install! installation media can only be created by windows 7 or higher device! no use when running something earlier. Once installed the activation features are awful! Does not verify when entering the code from the MS website! Awful. Took all of the joy and enjoyment out of it!

Rated 5 out of5 by fromMuch improved operating systemI know that some people miss the start menu and that some find the new settings and modern UI confusing, but the truth is that Windows 8.1 is faster, more stable, more powerful and with lots of new little features to help the users.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromTerribleI would not recommend windows 8.1 to anyone. Since I had it installed on my laptop it has done nothing but cause troubles and cost me money.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromTakes some getting used tooThis is a really good deal for a full pro copy of windows. I used it to fresh install on a new build PC and it worked great. The new start screen takes some getting used to but after a while you really notice how much you really don't need to use it.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromThis is a full installationSomebody rates it for one star and says it is not a full Windows 8, that's not true. If you need a clean install, search "Windows 8 ISO" and follow the instruction to build an installation media. Using a USB disk to install the system is easy and fast for me.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromNew isn't always betterI'm using a dual-core Intel Dell with 8GB RAM. It came with Windows 7 which I liked but my curiosity and a low cost upgrade deal caused me to try Windows 8 that I didn't care for. It was a relief when Windows 8.1 upgrade was available because the computer now boots to a desktop again but still has a full screen start menu instead of convenient icons on the left side of the screen like pre-8x versions. Menus are completely rearranged and still annoying to use even though I've been using it for a long time. On the positive side it's stable and boots quickly but I'm looking forward to version 10 that I've been reading about that will return to MS Windows traditions.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromTook Me By SurpriseI've heard and read a lot of people slating Windows 8 in favour of Windows 7. Don't believe them, I used to think W7 was better but once you get past the alien interface of W8 therein lurks a sleek, stable and fast OS.Seriously the boot time of this thing puts W7 to shame, from when I press the power button to when I log in W8 is at least twice as fast as W7 when using my bog-standard Dell laptop. It's just as fast navigating through the admittedly dense layers of menus, but once you get used to it it is a breeze to sail though. I wanted to hate Windows 8, like all the kool kids, but it's won me over, I must admit. If you've got a laptop then I would say Windows 8 is preferable to 7.
