WINDOWS 8 FIRST RUN EEK

After giving Windows 8 an 9 hour run i must say at least for me i was more than glad to get back to W7. There was to many apps internet Explorer was a pain to use as was loading files from my back up HD and as for having to keep clicking the right corners of the screen to get to settings and powerdown is also a pain. I just can not see it ever catching on in work places. Tis kind of OS may be good on Windows tablets or smart phones but it is not an OS for desk tops or laptops,W8 is on QVC to night so it will be interesting to see HOW THEY JAZZ UP THIS W8 OS UP.

After a number of hours using windows 8 i find this OS is a touch sreen os not for desktops and may be laptops it would serve no purpose in a busines it's clunkey i think via keyboard use. I am getting on in years and like every things in front of me not clicking to the top right or bottom right of the screen ect,i don't like the way it shows my photographs as in all past windows you click on the photo you want to see and it's there when i click on the the photo i want to look at in windows 8 it's not there you get a line of photos you don't want to see but perhaps it's me doing somthing wrong ?. Flash player is now working!!

Yet another gripe with W8 if you don't have a Microsoft account a number of APPS don't work and two of my email accounts won't work keep telling me they are in use on a Microsoft account that's news to me it's a couple of years since i held a microsoft account..
