ok guys I just bought a notebook with windows 8. I knew almost nothing about windows 8 so i just jumped in wishing for the best. There are some things that i like and some that i really dislike. I bought this notebook mainly as an email machine, I have a desktop with windows 7 at home, so no steam or any kinda kind of gaming, simply productibity.
I want to always have a task bar, thats my number one complaint. I have heard that there is an app that would make it more like windows 7. I like how it looks, so no complains there... please help
That Windows 8 UI sure is a piece of shit ain't it? I personally just pin what I need to the task bar and stay in desktop mode since I don't feel like modding it, and that's me with a touch screen laptop lol.
Classic Shell or Start8. Most Metro apps either suck, are buggy, make you do more work than you would with a normal desktop app, or just plain a "Lite" version of a full-fledged app. If you're using Windows 8 on a desktop/laptop, there's little reason for them when you can get most of that stuff through desktop apps or browser add-ons anyway.
