- The same Windows feel, just a different look, but same easy to use interface when you get to the Desktop.
- Increased search engine system to find applications in your system.
- A good Operating System for the Surface or Touchscreen Systems.
- Most applications work properly on Windows 8 like they did on Windows 7.
- The Metro Interface is a HUGE turnoff to desktop users, but on the Surface and the Windows Phone it makes sense and is alright.
- Not a big fan of the amount of resources Windows 8 hogs for basic systems.
- Have had a lot of issues with AMD Drivers causing some weird glitches (Rare, but still needs to be noted) with multiple screens with my Catalyst Drivers. On a single screen however there are no issues I have seen that were 'game breaking'.
- Some applications have some compatibility issues but can be worked around with a little ingenuity.
If you have a touch screen monitor or tablet/laptop, it works a lot better than the traditional Desktop experience.
We updated to the newest Windows iteration to get the best experience, however, we noticed that Windows 8 isn't the best solution for all of our business needs, but we are making it work until we can receive a Windows 10 demo to see if we need to upgrade.
