Windows 8 Dissapointment
I haven't even gotten to the upgrade to media center yet. But, I would like to make a comment about the upgrade for $39.99. Sounds great until you realize that a lot of the programs from xp, vista and 7 will not work on windows 8 and if you want to install your old operating system you have to also BUY an upgrade disk if you want to upgrade with Windows 8 later. No TOS file to use. You have to buy an upgrade disk. It's no bargain for what you get. So, it will cost 70 dollars total. oh, Plus tax. I am very dissapointed with this operating system. Just like Vista it was released before it was done. Between crashes and notices that programs are not compatable it's not worth the effort. Do yourself a favor. If you have Windows xp or Vista upgrade to Windows7. I just wasted over $200.00 on Windows 8 programs and not to mention the time trying it to work correctly. I build and repair and build Windows pcs and notbook. So, it's not like I don't know what I am doing. And BTW: A number of people I know who got the new Windows tablet, they also freeze and crash. I'll keep the programs and use them in maybe a year when they finally get all of the crap out of it. I am a club dj also and The fade option on the media player doesn't even work on Windows 8. It fades every other song instead of everyone....
