Ratings and reviews

Rated 2 out of5 by fromLost my microsoft office.What I didn't realize after installing was that I would no longer be able to use my Microsoft office that was currently on my system. I would have to get the office 365.Other than that it is somewhat getting used to but is working fine.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat features!I'm using for about one year and wont change it anymore to windows 7. For me its perfect.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromSmooth and StableYet to encounter a single issue with this OS. Used it on both my work computer and my personal gaming rig, and it's been 100% flawless since the time it's been installed. Normally with XP or 7 I'd be reinstalling every 3-4 months. This has been installed since Windows 8's release and yet to see a need to reinstall. Still buttery smooth, still fast to boot. Maybe because I'm an IT Professional I don't encounter stupid problems others have been having, but can 100% say I've had a very pleasent experience with Windows 8 and 8.1.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromDon't Understand All the ComplaintsSo I kept seeing reviews like "worst OS ever", "so unreliable", and "never forget" but where is this coming from? I loved windows 7 and recently built a new desktop PC now running windows 8.1 and I couldn't be happier. I have disable all the metro apps but keep in mind they were designed for "touch" devices. All it takes is a few clicks and the widgets are disabled and you can have the desktop launch on boot. That fixes 90% of the complaints right there!So what else is there to complain about? The organization/labeling is a bit different but all in all its the same windows you are used to with a few new features. Performance wise its great and so far is out performing my previous windows 7 (in terms of speed). Its not perfect but its very good. People seem to be resistant to change. Notice how all the reviews are either 1 star or 5 stars.To the people who review, Stop blaming your OS for your hardware issues! This OS is as stable as it gets.If you are on the fence of getting this for a desktop just do it purely on the basis that it preforms better and really is not as bad as people are making it out to be. Besides you will get a free upgrade to windows 10 when it is launched in a few months and so far windows 10 looks to be a polished desktop version of windows 8.1 from what I have seen.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromConfusingI bought this program because I was told that it would help the performance on my computer since I was still using Windows 7. It has helped with that but I find the 8.1 to be very confusing and hard to figure out all the different in's and out's to get from here to there. (if that makes sense). I have had it for a couple of weeks now and still do not know how to do the things that should come easy. I wish there was a tutorial button that you could push at any time to guide me when I have issues on the different programs.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromweb siteThe website is hard to use. It used to be I could find what I waned right away and be downloaded. Now I go in circles. For example 8.1 upgrade is not loading and all I get is useless reasons why but no clear solution. I spent a considerable amount of time just trying to download a free solitaire like used to come with windows and still should instead of games requiring on line access. There are areas with no wifi.
