There's a theory that it wasn't named Windows nine because the number nine is associated with suffering in Japan, and Microsoft didn't want their sales to decline over superstition. That's just a theory though, no one knows why they skipped over 9.... yet.....

Oh god I fucked up so hard. Just tried to go back to my Win7 and it won't startup. ;_;

The dangers of dicking around with your Operating systems people, don't do it unless you know what you're doing.

I, obviously, did not.

Ah! That sucks. Even the experienced screw it up every now and then. I hope you had your data and programs installed to a different drive or partition than the OS. If not that makes recovery far more annoying.

I installed Windows 10 to a different partition, which at least lets me access me files from here, It's a good thing I have an 160GB external drive. I can save most of my stuff.

"It's the 9th version of windows, so we named it windows 10." Oh yeah.

Windows loves screwing up things so that your bootloader no longer works properly. That's why when you install linux as a dual-boot option on desktops, you're always supposed to install windows first, then linux. I'm guessing your problem is something related to the new windows messing with the old windows' bootloader.

My question is: how fast is boot-up and wake from sleep?

I dual boot windows vista and ubuntu, but only use windows when I want to play games. Every time I boot into vista I'm reminded of how ridiculously slow it is. I know windows 7 is faster, but don't want to pay $100+ for it.

I don't rightly know, since the dual boot menu adds some load time before I even start up the OS. Once I get rid of my Windows 7 and get everything figured out on here I'll time how fast it is.

Windows 10 cannot come soon enough. I wouldn't say 8 is as bad as many people say that it is, but it definitely needs improved upon. Like... where is my start button?

My only question is if there is any news on when Windows 10 will be released.


8 isn't that bad, people are just resistant to change is what it is. While there are some things wrong with it mostly desktop side, its been really stable for me VS win 7. Win 8 seems more like a mobile op then something you would use for your desktop or even laptop.

Cool, thanks. I would love if windows made a super stripped-down version of windows that was just really fast and only cost $20.

They canceled 9, they didn't skip it. You can google or bing it.

Are they going to have us buy stuff like Media Center or Media Player or go third party with those kinds of things?

I see why you bash Windows 8, but you fail to notice Windows 8.1 is really good. I guess you wouldn't know, still using Windows 7 and all.

Multiple desktops is really the only noteable improvement. They added a bunch of random stuff that nobody will ever use. Just google it.

I'm certain MS will never charge consumers for programs that have been free for all of their previous OS's. Media player is still here, Media Center is not, but I never really saw what that was for. I'm sure you could find it somewhere on the internet.

Do you see any reason for gamer to switch from 7? Boot times or few seconds loading differences doesn't matter as I'm running i7 @ 4,4ghz and SSD already.

I ran League of Legends at the exact same fps on both 7 and 10, so there is no definitive reason for you to switch to 10.
