Windows XP vs Windows 8

2 years ago | 37879 Views
I wonder what Microsoft developers were really thinking of coming up with a shitty OS like Windows 8.  I think Windows XP is by far user-friend than Win 8.

If you have seen or used these two, which one do you think is user friendly?

I agree.Windows 8 for the desktop,which is what I'm using, is not impressing me. However, while XP is the stablest, if you will, I think it's time we moved on to Windows 7. In my experience, I have found Windows 7 to be as stable as XP. In W8, the so called Modern UI needs some getting used to. Navigating through it is sometimes a nightmare. However, I'm still corious. I will stick to it for a while and see what happens. W7 for the time being is my favourite.

You are right Win is ok but Win 8 should have been left for mobile devices only, maybe!

took a look at a Windows 8 laptop in a store. tried opening up an app, and it restarted. tried opening the app again. it restarted. I turned the machine off, waited 30 seconds, restarted, and tried the app again. same results.

while this may not be a common result, if an OS can't take the heat on a demo box, how is it going to behave in an office environment?

I'll stick with my XP systems for now. they may be old, but at least the bloody things work.

First time, when I looked in the shop at Windows 8 I thought "oh my god! this os really sucks-_-". I went to my cousin. I got a PC from him and I was WRONG! Windows 8 IS the best...And stop saying that is not stable...YOU've got a really bad PC...

Windows 8 is good but it's unusable, unless you install "Classic Shell" then things get much more interesting.

People using XP will be forced to make the switch, if you dont' like 8 at least go to 7, 7 is a really great operating system NOW, I'm running 8 on my laptop, not wanting to switch from 7 to 8 on my main desktop system yet

I just bought a Lenovo N586 laptop for about $300 and it came with Win8 MM

I needed it to replace an OLD Win XP on a HP DV 9000 17" laptop -

now I am trying to figure out if I should open the box or just return it ?


ADVICE

Got it at Best Buy so I get 30 days to return ; however, I hate to do that and invest ANY time if Win 8 MM is a real PoS.

I see I can get a Chrome for about the same price -

Any inputs/advice would be greatly appreciated - please be specific not just good/bad,

I am looking to use MicroSoft Office 2011 and really jsut eMail and web browsing.

Thank you in advance.

Switched to XP's when first came out...recently bought 2 computers with Win 8 and I just pray neither one gets thrown against the wall before we can figure 8 out. It's godawful...XP always been user friendly. Microsoft unleashed it's sickest joke on us yet (after 2014 any XP won't be supported by MS) and it's their product. There's greed and then there's greed.

I JUST BOUGHT 2 macs. Both are air. they are better than windows 8. why did I switched? because I don't give any credit to MS. They are just making millions with garbage. xp was excellent and it still is. Maybe Apple s OS is here to stay, I hope it gets better in the future but no failures please.

I think you're not the smartest for comparing an extremely old os with a modern os. Of course windows 8 is better, faster, more optimized, and has better security. There are 3rd party applications that can get you back the look of 7.

Windows 8 is better. Windows XP is too outdated.

Win8 sucks, and is full of NSA spywares. Be WARNED! MS should re-release XP retro with upgrades .... I'd actually buy it - unlike previous Win products which I've never spent a cent on - Cracked. If you want stability - XP is it.Seven is problematic, and Win 8 is an abortion. Wouldn't touch it.

I disagree. Windows 8 does rock more than Windows XP. I use a windows 8 at home, it is far by more user friendly and crashes much less times than XP.

fwiw, use of uncreative, sophomoric language (in example: "shitty") categorically negates any value of your opinion and comments..

Windows XP was the last good operating system that Microsoft ever released. Windows Vista did not work. Windows 7 is not user-friendly. Windows 8 is too much like Apple. If I had wanted an Apple, I would have bought an Apple. A cleaned-up version of Windows XP with a cleaned-up version of Office 2003 and a cleaned-up version of Internet Explorer 8 would be the best thing Microsoft could ever release.

Wow.....pulling my hair out. I run 3d graphics....boom all of a sudden my LW hub no longer works. I've got more msn crap and apps running in the background. Won't install properly software that is only a couple of years old. Installed 8.1 and more disaster. NOT IMPRESSED. (and it's not my computer...happened on 2 different systems) Starts amazingly fast...but so what! Who cares! I just want a reliable...no frills...no added crap system. Sorry...it's just another Vista wannabe.....I bought that garbage too (Groan) Not to mention they have to keep screwing with the interface....I'm buying a computer not a game machine! They need to sell the xp or windows 7 cds again. Oh...and will software developers "please" start building for Ubuntu. Need to toss these guys...and apple isn't cutting it either.

Windows 8 is NSA windows - developed with great participation and pumped millions into development from/and NSA. Those who use win for serious work should consider that company secrets are no more company secrets specially if those secrets are crucial for company competition and survival on market due industry espionage mainly from NSA. If you play games then spam NSA with useless info further. I'm switching to Linux, i'm sick and tired of windows being so crap about protection non stop problems with all sorts of nasty stuff going on. MS should suffer a lot and Google to (working also for NSA) as EU going encrypted internet.

Everybody knows that windows XP is more user friendly and a better OS, but it is gone now, so I need to figure out how to get a "Windows 8.1 for Dummies". There are so many little simple operations that I cannot figure out and I waste so much time trying, till I just need a lesson or two in computer operation.
