Re: Ugly @Eadon
I bought myself a Windows 8 upgrade for my ThinkPad x220t and yes, I had to learn a few new tricks but now I find it a HUGE improvement over 7. And no, I didn't install a start menu because when you learn how to use the Start screen correctly, it's actually faster than the start menu.
Improvements after Win8 upgrade :
- Starts faster (20 seconds from off to "ready to work" instead of a minute to "started but not yet ready")
- Battery life extended (I believe by as much as 25%)
- Improved file copy/move dialogs
- Account synching across computers...
And that's only what is really obvious.
I've yet to meet someone who really tried it and still dislike Windows 8. And I mean really tried, not just read somewhere that it's bad.
