There would be nothing for me to say on the Windows 8 forum apart from saying that Windows 8 is horrible.Which it is. And that Windows 7 and Windows XP are better than Windows 8.Which is also true. And that Windows 8 is not the real Windows.Well Windows 8 is not really,it is more like another operating system.So that would not go down very well on a Windows 8 forum. I gave up using Linux because I did not know how to use it,and I have never used Mac. But I don't want to use Linux and Mac,which I don't know how to use anyway. That's why I use Windows. But now they are planning to make the next version of Windows like Linux or Mac. Well Windows 8 looks like Ubuntu or Mac and not like Windows at all. No wonder I and other people are so upset. This whole system they have when you go to the shops to buy a laptop.That because there is a new version of Windows out,if you want to buy Windows XP,Windows 2000,98,98 or Windows Vista you can't,because the shops don't sell it any more.That is not right. It is our life on the computer.If we want to buy Windows 7,Windows XP Windows 2000 or even Windows 98,or 95, then why can't we? We Windows users should be able to buy what version of Windows we want. But we cannot because the shops do not sell Windows XP or Windows 2000 any more. It is all very silly. Now they have this Windows 8. And if they stop selling Windows 7.We will be forced to buy Windows 8,when we do have to buy a new laptop. That is my worst nightmare. I and other people will be stuck with an operating system I and other people cannot figure out how to use. And I don't think I will be able to use Windows 8. The way it is,unless it has a normal start menu and desktop like Windows 7. I can understand people upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7. But Windows 7 is the real Windows and it is a new version of Windows,made only 2 years ago. Windows XP and Windows 7 are both good and they are both voted by me as the two number 1 operating systems. They could make a Windows 8 but without the Metro theme one that is like Windows 7.With a normal Windows 7 start menu and desktop. But why should we want to use Windows 8,even if it was like Windows 7,with no Metro theme? When we have got Windows 7 and Windows 7 is a brand new operating system brought out only 2 years ago? And most people have only just upgraded to Windows 7 and bought a new Windows 7 computer less than a year ago. So we have already got a new version of Windows-Windows 7. Andrea Borman.
