Windows 8.1 is the biggest pile of shite I have ever had the unfortunate experience of downloading. Since I downloaded this pantsfest shitbag system I have had the problem of my computer being slow as fuck, I fucking hate how shit 8.1 is, if I could I would set fire to my computer and buy one with windows 8 even if that is shit as well, it just isn't as shit as windows 8.1 which is seriously fucking shit! Microsoft you are a bunch of cunts, windows xp was the best thing you ever did, why the fuck did you ruin it with the shit you offer nowdays! FAIL!!

Yeah, no. Your lack of computer experience shows if you say Windows 8 is slow, or you're using something from the stone age.

Meh. I'll wait for Windows 9, or try to go Linux if I have to, once windows 7 becomes more obsolete.

The title should read "Stuck with Windows 8.1! Here's How to Deal With it".

I guess if you made the mistake of going to Windows 8 this will help.

I still suggest if you must upgrade your PC find a company that sells one with Windows 7 or build one with W7.

If you bought a PC with Windows 8 and now realize it is a compromise in computing. If you realize you'll have to deal with this step backward for the next 3 or more years. You should return it or sell it as some new PC components only have Win8 drivers (talk about evil) and downgrading may not work. Well not without cost!

What a coincidence! I just completed my own upgrade guide and was all set to publish it when I came across this article! I may as well post it right here and now:

Don't.

Be aware that Win8.1 update has caused a lot of issues with the computer no longer sleeping. Eightforums has this huge post about it. It affected me until I found a third party workaround (it only worked for a few people unfortunately).

Doesn't sound to good, I have not experienced this on any of my computers luckily.

The CMPXCHG16b instruction issue just bit me last night. Way to go MS, change system requirements mid OS cycle. Sure, the update basically downloads and installs a whole new OS, but Microsoft sees it as a .1 release.

I was happy with Windows 8 on my machine. Core 2 Duo E8500 and 8GBs of DDR2 RAM. It does what I need it to. The system had been running Win 7 Pro and I decided last night I wanted to switch to Win 8.1 Pro full time. Unfortunately, I can't.

However, my Asus G50Vt laptop with a Core 2 Duo T9600, with 8GBs of RAM, and it has no issues running 8.1.

I wonder how much did M$ paid these guys to write this.

I am glad that they are finally saying WIN 8.1 instead of spelling it out. I have been using that since WIN 7 on the Microsoft Community website! I don't know why they always spell it out when people use abbreviations all the time.

To annoy you. Because the entire universe is quite obviously centered around you, so everything everyone does every single day is specifically targeted at irritating you.

People who think Windows 8 is hard needs to go take a crash course in computer common sense.

Still trying the "Windows 8 is too hard" insult, huh? So original...

JosephColt

What are you talking about? I am not saying it's hard....I am saying it very easy.

It's not that it's hard, it's that it's different. And people are resistant to sudden change.

Also I'm willing to bet within the next five posts this article's comments will go downhill.
