Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromNiceI really don't have any complaints about Win 8.1. It took some getting used to, but now that the learning curve is over, I have decided that I really like it. Might be their best so far.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI really enjoy Windows 8.1I've been using it ever since the "release preview". It's basically a more refined, better looking, faster version of Windows 7.I even prefer the Windows 8 start screen. I'm also "tech intermediate" so that probably doesn't hurt. I think many people complaining about the OS and the new design/features are borderline tech illiterate. I've heard very few valid criticisms of the product.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromNo use for phone developmentI had a good core2duo laptop but it turned out i cannot use windows phone emulator since it doesn't support virtualization. Then spent a fortune and bought a laptop with Core i3 and Windows 8.1 64 bit only to find that Windows 8.1 PRO version is needed for emulators. Just wanted to shout and curse microsoft for making life difficult for developers. Why do i have to buy a PRO just to use the windows phone emulators. I had enough.... and now moving to android dev.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI love this OS!At first I was very, very sceptic - Changes are always hard - but after a few weeks I really got used to the system. It never crashes and is made in a very user friendly way. The way of using the 'Metro blocks' as a start botton is actually quite good, you'll have way more space to put your programs and even live updates from apps. As for security, it's good. Even better then the previous onces. I like the way of clicking on the top of an app and dragging it down to close. To bad this doesn't happen with every program (maybe something for improvement?). To keep it short, I love this OS, and keep going Microsoft!

Rated 4 out of5 by fromBoot camp reviewer here on 8.1 proI upgraded from windows7 pro to 8.1 pro on my iMac. The install went well however I was unable to use windows update for sometime, Ethernet didn't work yet wifi on the same modem did... And several windows updates failed wasting 8 hours of Instal time, support did fix me up though so I give it a 4 stars for being a good idea just very quirky with a silly application system and low trackpad support, but it works well and is decently fast.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromI couldn't find anything.Ok, well it started out quite well, I was welcomed into the operating system by the usual bootup routine of 'beep', fans spinning up, and windows logo. Five minuets later, I arrived at the desktop, where, to my surprise, the Dock had melted down into an ingot thing filling up the bottom centimetre of my screen. None the less I proceeded to try and write a letter... Except for the fact that when I went to try and find the launchpad, It was absent from the melted down dock, meaning that there was no conceivable way for me to get to the Pages app. Un-deterred, I soldiered on, and created a new document using some proprietary text editing software by right clicking on the desktop, and selecting 'new text document'. Once I had written the document, I attempted to save it. After ten minutes of fumbling around to find the 'cmd' key to do the cmd+s shortcut, I gave up and used the file menu. Much to my shock, however, I could not see my hard drive. There was just some strange 'C:\' disk image or something; my HDD, called 'Macintosh HD', was nowhere to be seen. So instead I attempted to print the document. I attached my printer, but it was not automatically detected, so I tried to navigate to the webpage for the printers manufacturer, epson, however Safari was completely missing. I give up on this new operating system. I preferred the previous version, 10.10 Yosemite. I think this has gone really in the wrong direction. sorry x
