Ratings and reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromDisappointedI'm disappointed that after purchasing the Pro Pack I'm being sent physical media instead of making a download and product key available. Upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro is bad enough but now this task on my task list will remain for several days.I've very disappointed and now wish I hadn't bought the upgrade.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromNot ready for primetimeI had to purchase this 'software upgrade' to have access to my computer's administrative functions, something that should be natively supported by the administrative account. Also, after updating to the Pro Pack and attempting to run the Media Center, it takes almost 10 minutes for the program to initialize and allow me to play either music or video's.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromI love it!My brother had this product on his computer, but the he gave it to me!It took awhile to get used to the "new" start menu, but eventually it was really easy to get used to!So I highly recommend this product to Windows OS 7 users or others!Plus the futures I really loved were the new search menu, the new shop, and the start menu design (and the layout).☺

Rated 2 out of5 by fromstill don`t like iti upgraded from windows 8. i went to pick up my laptop and the screen turned sideways like a tablet would. not a big deal but the operating system needs to distinguish itself from a desktop or phone/tablet. i actually had to click to NOT let the screen rotate. i think that feature should be built in so the system knows if it`s a desktop or phone/tablet. i also upgraded to the new 10 preview and had the same issue only this time the setting would not take. i tried several times and it kept reverting back to the sideways screen. i finally went back to windows 8.1.

Rated 5 out of5 by from8.1.Pro Pack did the trick!I needed to upgrade from the free 8.1 to the pro pack to enable my machine to run hyper-V for visual studio windows phone emulator.The pro-pack arrived promptly; the instructions were clear; the upgrade process was smooth and streamlined... only took about 15 minutes of hands-off watching it do its thing.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromI'm considering migration to linuxAfter one week using laptop with Windows 8.1 i'm pretty sure i'll install Linux. Windows fail to run certified compilers, lack ability to accesss and secure configuration files, and always upgrade or go to online store without my consent.Windows developers have forgotten, that usability matters, and some people are using computers to work. Oracle or RedHat gave me everything, i need for free. When i pay for support i got real assistance in solving my issues, not some uninformative videos.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromSo far so good!I first tried windows 8 long before it came out some how I stumbled across a sneak preview of it. I didn't really like it as at the time I was barely breaking in windows 7 home premium.I have been using it now for about a year(8.1) and I like it now that I know my way around. It did remind me of a phone OS. But I get it now. And that's what it is about us. We don't like the things we don't understand. Tonight I went to best buy and saw all the latest stuff that was just released and WOW!! I'm loving it thanks M.S. and ADOBE. my two favorites.
