Yes, the poll here has great bearing on the way the computer world ticks. LOL This wonderful place is up to 127 members now ? Either way, the only negative thing I can say about Windows 8 is that Microsoft should offer a choice of a regular fully functional start menu or the new paneled desktop.
Bottom line is that Windows 8.1 is ultra stable and great to use. I view it as a souped up Windows 7 myself. I still prefer the standard Windows desktop and this is what I see when I boot up. Classic Shell is the answer.
