Default Re: Random Chit Chat

I was trying to make it work for me like Microsoft intended without a start menu.
I ended up downloading classic shell. works wonders.
Still happy with win8 tough.

So the only tweaks i have used is a third party start menu and i have disable ribbons and all hot corners.

Don't get me wrong, I really like Windows 8... you have to get used to it that's for sure. Once you're comfortable with it though, I think it is much better.

That said however, I paid good money for my gaming rig... and gaming on 8 blows, so switching back to 7 was more of a necessary step to maximize performance.

How long sense you switched back to Win7 on your gaming machine?
Updates might have fixed or improved it.

I don't really miss the proper start menu, I am hoping Microsoft will bring it out in Update 2. Rumors have been pointing to an announcement this month and then being released either in August or September Windows 8.1 Update 2 to Get Released THIS AUGUST? | Gigjets.

In all honesty though; the constant creation of new threads for every article you come by should be moved into the RCC thread.

Bit of Sarcasm!

It's unlikely you'll have trouble but it is likely that you'll notice a difference in the ability of the hardware to produce the same graphical output, under the same circumstances.

I had Win8 a month prior to launch through a school download. The launch day I changed it back. Someone made the same suggestion about updates, so I reinstalled 8 in January. After having enough slow and laggy games, I went back to 7 a month ago.

8 is on my work PC, and my personal school/work Lenovo. Great for multitasking, but not gaming unfortunately.
