Microsoft's newest Operating System, either improves Microsoft or Destroys it
Microsoft offered the Windows 8 $15 Promo, for people who bought a computer on June 2nd or later. Now if you didn't meet the requirements for the offer you can buy a Windows 8 Pro upgrade for $87.05 on Amazon.
Microsoft wanted to make Windows 8 a Metro style User Interface. In which they did, you can see from the image above. Microsoft made Windows 8 so when you used it, it makes you want to use a touch screen device. At least that's what it feels like when you're using Windows 8 on a non- touchscreen monitor/PC.
Microsoft though in my opinion has outdone Windows 8. People were worried about the Metro styled UI. For those people, Microsoft incorporated a "Desktop" mode. This "Desktop" mode allows you to transfer to a more or so, regular Windows 7 - ish UI. You can easily switch between the two.
For my overall opinion. Microsoft has made an amazing operating system. If you are a gamer out there you might want to stay away from Windows 8 for a while and then get the upgrade once more games are Windows 8 compatible. As a gamer myself and a technology enthusiast, I tried Windows 8 through the $15 Windows Upgrade Offer. I loved everything about it. Except that it couldn't play some of the games us gamers enjoy such as BF3. Yet if you are not a gamer then go ahead and give Windows 8 a shot I did and downgraded.
Cons for downgrading. If you have got Windows 8 pro through the promo, and downgraded you are pretty much S.O.L. Unless you want to pay $87.07 or more to re - upgrade. Since now games for the new generation well be compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 7 such as BF4.
