This article glories windows 8.1 and puts it on a pedestal. One of the reasons why it recommends not switching back to windows 7 is because it will take hours to install windows 7. That is false. Windows 8 is a disappointing failure and 8.1 is basically a facelift for windows 7.
Soon they will release windows 9 and I bet you it will look very similar to windows 7. This says windows 8 is great after you alter the interface and change the desktop layout which to the average Joe is not that easy. O yes windows 8.1 already has that installed for you wu huu if you had windows 7 you would never have to deal with a desktop interface designed for touch screen devices.
Who does that who assumes everyone has touch screen monitors at home or in offices ? I guess Microsoft offices all have touchscreen monitors.
