Well it has been out for awhile now and I was wondering the following:

Who is using it?
Have your tried it? 
What do you think of it?

My kids got laptops from their Uncle and of they came with Win 8 and of course dad got the fun of setting them up and getting the update to Win 8.1 and installing all the other goodies on them.

UPDATE:

sons laptop:

hard drive took a dump, needed to restore WIN8.  Well guess what due to a new hard drive, WIN8 wont restore and MS wants me to buy a NEW copy.   (BULLSHIT - not going to happen)

daughters laptop:

starting getting a blue pop-up with a USB_DRVR_error, did what I was recommended to do with a WIN8 restore and well guess what now, the MB took a dump and now the unit is a coaster.


1st, never buy HP laptops,
2nd, DONT us WIN8

Well I got the kids new Acer Laptops w/8.1 & both kids want me to uninstall & put win7 Ultimate on (really considering it).

Absolutely no chance of going to Win10 w/all I have read about it and the issues it brings.  i'm sticking with winXP & win7 ultimate
