Anybody else having issues with Win 8 and usb, I had no problems with Win 7 64 bit but now every so often it randomly drops my usb WIFI and keyboard
as well as trackball, BUT it doesn't drop my mouse (mouse on the right, trackball on the left).
I haven't touched Win 8 and don't plan to..but I appreciate the heads up on continuing foundational problems. If they have USB issues...on such
basic basic levels? Wow..... Fail is something they need billboards on for this one.
The question has been posed many times over the years....what would it take to move from Windows 100% and totally to Linux? Microsoft just answered
that all by themselves. Windows 8 is what it took and it's done it in spades. The little penguin is my friend as Win 7 support fades.
I'll run Win 7 as a Dual boot on my desktop and my Laptop is going Linux for the coming semester at school. I've played with Linux as a primary OS
but this will be the first term I use it with no Win even on the machine for my laptop. Hey. it should be a blast. I buy an SSD drive and Windows
finds ways to get even BIGGER, slower and worse for coding to make even that seem slow. On Linux though? Ahh... SSD 's load like an Instant-On
appliance. Well.. Almost.
Win 8 frosted my cupcake with this tile crap. If they want to force new interface things on me because "THEY" think it's cool? Well....I hope they
enjoy their software. I have other options, right?
Older hardware can be more of a pain than on win7, but unless it's really obscure hardware then it's not an issue to sort. if you have really old
hardware then you're not likely to be installing windows 7/8 either.
The only problem I've had with win8 so far is that it won't take the drivers for my eken tablet so I can use the livesuite software to dump roms.
runs better than 7 for me, loads a hell of a lot faster too. Surprising since I said I'd never touch it.
I don't have Windows 8 installed (I will install it when I find a way of disabling that silly tile screen ), but I have a co-worker that has it
installed on his laptop (since September) and he hasn't had any problems.
