    Default Windows 8 is a Piece of Shit, and Here's the Solution:

    Note: Since I made this post I took a suggestion from post #12 and installed the software recommended by jlzandrad "Classic Shell", and this is EXACTLY what is missing from Windows 8. Couldn't be happier. I never tried the software I originally recommended, so you can ignore that suggestion and instead take jlzandrad's advice and install "Classic Shell". This was a GREAT suggestion, and jlzandrad deserves some good rep+.

    So my client is all pleased with herself as she's purchased a brand-new laptop with all the features she had to have and it was cheap. Plus, as an added bonus, it has the latest Operating System, Windows 8.

    News Flash: It's a piece of shit.

    Like any flash-in-the-pan corporate culture, Microsoft is in it's "decay" phase, and psychedelic mushroom fantasies have replaced whatever software engineering common sense that used to exist. They're inventing new and exciting ways to relive their best hallucinogenic journeys by changing the Laws of the Known Universe on their Operating System at random times, for reasons understood only by a large, 750 lb. yellow frog named "Gormanzle".

    Buttons that used to do something are sometimes there, and sometimes not. Things that used to be windows can suddenly become simple colored boxes that have no way to close, terminate, end or back-up. These concepts "sort of" exist in the beginning of your Windows 8 acid-trip, but don't count on them once you've fallen too far into the sewer. Escape is not an option. Microsoft has you in orange plastic underwear and matching ball-gag, and strapped to a purple girder that looks like it used to be a dandelion, and before they give you the melted white and chrome-striped anal probe, they want to show you a facebook app that, while it has a facebook logo, it's not really related to facebook in any way. It's a button-clicking tester, designed to test your ability to click buttons and psychically "feel" the intuitive vibrations of the Psi Nebulonic cluster, that place one ascends to once they've become one with their consciousness and transmogrified displacement systems.

    The journey is compulsory: there is no way out as there is no "out" in this universe, nor is one really ever "in". There is no "up", nor "down" either, rather it is all one long, laterally and infinitely flowing journey, possibly toward a "somewhere" that may or may not exist. It all depends upon your stasis point, and the endocrine levels of bichloroformic testicularides being aligned with the super-heterodynal outflow of the transflux capacitor. "When" has become "how", and we can do this in our rainbow-hued and all-inclusive spirit of godless oneness.

    It's just a matter of time.

    I've never done any kind of hallucinogen before, and now I understand why. People that I have known have warned me that the "trip" of psychedelic drugs can last well past the point where the drugs have worn off. Sometimes it can last for the rest of one's life. I certainly hope that is not the case with me, however sometimes from the corner of my eye I can catch my loyal and steadfast Windows 7 desktop slightly "droop" to one side and the colors will shift ever so slightly. Maybe that's just the monitor; I can't say for certain. However, I can say that I will never do that drug again. I also recommend that others stay away from it, as long-term use of Windows 8 may have a tendency to cause people to accept all manner of insane and irrational notions, too numerous to detail in this post.

    stop comparing Windows 8 to drugs - you'll have me running to my local computer store.

    It looks like a tablet (drug reference again!) operating system to me - not really designed for laptops/desktops. At least thats what I could make out in the ten or so minutes before installing Vista on top of it on our new staff laptop.

    My mom (78 years old) finally decided she wanted a laptop. Her budget meant nothing Apple. She had me do the shopping for her. I tried like a motherfucker to find something within her price range that still had Windows 7 but had to go with Windows 8. Lucky for her she has nothing to compare it to having never really used a computer before but holy shit, ONLY Windows could make something this cumbersome.
    How many fucking steps do they think it should take to just shut down the fucking computer??

    W8 is a piece of shit for sure, but I do not agree they are in 'decay'. They will rebound from this huge blunder OS and will be just fine with the next like they did the last couple of decades.

    A typical MicroSoft sequence for PC OS is shit-good-shit-good-shit-good => 95-98-Millenium-XP-VIsta-W7, you get the picture.

    Judging by that post, I highly doubt you don't do drugs

    Windows 8 is complete trash for a "power" user or anyone who knows anything about computers. You have to understand, you're not the market microsoft was targeting.

    And this is why I still prefer to run XP! Windows 7 is alright too.

    Windows 8 is a good OP if you have a touchscreen computer so you can use it like tablet, what I did with mine was install a dual boot with windows 7 pro...
    There is a great and free software to add the menu bar again to the task bar.

    Classic Shell is free and very good with lots of optimization options

    Works fine for me...

    I use the desktop, if I need to open an application I press the windows key and type the name and it opens. Basically windows 7 with a different start bar. If you don't like it just don't use it but it really isn't as bad as you make it out.

    I like it, the performance increases are great. And metro I can work with as every app I buy can be used on my tablet. I actually don't see a downside on my dual screen setup. And to the person complaining about turning it off, why would you? Its made to stay on and hibernate, its not xp.

    With the Windows Surface RT selling out of its available stock -- and winning an endorsement from Oprah Winfrey, no less -- it may seem like Microsoft (MSFT +0.38%) is riding on a high.

    Despite the short-term good news, the long-term fate of the company is not so rosy, at least according to futurist Peter Cochrane, ex-chief technology officer of British Telecom (BT +0.08%). Microsoft will "die and disappear" within the next few years, Cochrane told Computing.(Microsoft owns and publishes Top Stocks, an MSN Money site.)

    "There is no convergence in IT -- what we see is divergence ... apps are appearing individually to achieve separate functions," he said. As such, the "one OS" (operating system) business model, like Microsoft's, cannot survive.

    By all accounts, Microsoft "owns" the operating system business, with about 85% market share. (The remaining market share is divided between Mac and Linux.)

    Far from being an alarmist, Cochrane's bona fides are sterling; after an illustrious career at BT, he was appointed as the UK's first "Professor for the Public Understanding of Science & Technology" in 1998.

    Cochrane is currently CEO and Chairman of Cochrane Associates and he is an active investor in high-tech start-ups.

    The "one OS" model clearly seems to be where Microsoft is putting most of its chips, given the recent debut of Windows 8. In Windows 8, Microsoft has a single OS that looks like it will be able to span multiple hardwares (PC, tablet, phone, TV) and can be accessed in a variety of ways including touch, type, clicks, and gestures (Kinect).

    Windows 8 is not only used in the Surface RT tablet; the Nokia (NOK +0.84%) smartphone using the application was just launched last week. However, Nokia currently has a very small share of the smartphone market, according to data from the International Data Corporation.

    Nokia's Symbian operating system holds a 2.3% share in the market, down from 14.6% a year ago, said IDC regarding third-quarter data in a release dated November 1. Windows has a 2% share, up from 1.2% over the same period.

    Apple's (AAPL +0.03%) iOS holds a 14.9% share and Google's (GOOG +0.70%) Android holds a 75% share. Research In Motion's (RIMM +3.61%) BlackBerry platform shrank to 4.3% for the third quarter, down from a 9.5% share for the third quarter last year, according to IDC.

    IDC said shipments of Android-based smartphones grew 91.5% in the third quarter to a record 136 million units. Google's free mobile OS nearly doubled the third-quarter growth rate for the rest of the industry.

    Replacing the operating system-based model, said Cochrane, will be a new app-based model that allows users to interface with any screen in the world through tiny access devices, or even cybernetic implants.

    Cochrane also predicts divergence in the cloud, with clouds "going live and being populated only for as long as they are required." Current reliance on device-hosted applications is holding back the move to more agile computing, he said.

    Microsoft clearly has a legacy operations business to support, now and in the near-term future, since most cloud servers run on Windows. Even so, the migration to cloud computing, an estimated $14 billion industry in its own right according to IDC, could be a turning point for the industry.

    Sanford Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said in a research note that the cloud could represent "the tip of the iceberg ... an important deflationary force for traditional packaged applications services."

    With about $50 billion in cash or equivalents, Microsoft has the means to reinvent itself and develop applications beyond the stable opensource platform model it has built.

    Even if Cochrane's predictions are correct, in the end, Microsoft has the means to transform itself in a similar manner to what Fuji (FUJIY +2.87%) is trying to do as it migrates away from the dying photography industry.

    Alternatively, it could truly "die and disappear" like Kodak.

    Windows 8 may be a piece of shit but your point has many faults. Hallucinogens. You seem to have generalized here. So you're saying that mushrooms can last a life time? What I took from doing mushrooms in the beautiful, open wilderness is to appreciate this world as if through the eyes of a child and it has humbled me. The only thing life-time here is the lessons that I have learned.

    You could've saved that whole speil and just said Windows 8 isn't good and Microsoft has abandoned the aspirations of being innovative, and instead, has taken the role of trying to appeal to what's trending (mobile/tablets) and implementing it into the PC market.

    I grabbed windows 8 for my girlfriends all in one touchscreen desktop, I agree it's a piece of shit as far as usability goes, although it's pretty cool for our kids to play on with the app games/touchscreen stuff. I am still on 7 and would never personally upgrade to 8 though. I guess it has its uses.

    Default Re: Windows 8 is a Piece of Shit, and Here's the Solution:

    The B. Friendly is dead on about Windows 8 sucking on a desktop but underneath the fumbled UI there is a decent operating system. Here are some of my recommendations:


    1. I also wanted my damn Start Menu back! Rather than go free like you can with Classic Menu and as the OP suggested I opted to spend $4.99 with Stardock which is a program that also includes an option to boot directly to the desktop. They have a great desktop program I already use called Fences and the reviews have been positive on Stardock so I figured I would support them by buying this product.
    2. Getting rid of that annoying lock screen tablet swipe is as simple as by opening the Local Group Policy Editor by pressing the Win + R key combination to bring up a run box, then type gpedit.msc and hit enter. Now you will need to drill down into:

    Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel ->
    Personalization

    On the right-hand side, you will need to double click on the “Do not display the lock screen” setting. Change the radio button from “Not Configured” to “Enabled”, click apply and you’re good to go.



    1. Adding god mode by creating a folder and renaming it “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” – note: don’t paste the quotes.
    2. Add a movies video player because Microsoft decided to save money on licensing and dropped the player. Try the free .VLC Media Player and there are others.
    3. You can bring back Aero with Aero8Tuner but I may not bother with a slower laptop.

    Ummm...... you guys know that you can....... click the "Desktop" tile on the metro screen and use it like normal?

    I prefer W8 over w7 and vista. Start menu missing? not too hard to throw your mouse corner in the corner. By now you guys should be familiar with hitting the "Start" button on the keyboard and typing the first 3 letters of your desired app and hitting enter. Takes no longer than 1-1.5 seconds to open any app in your start menu. You can disable the UAC that was in Vista and W7. Other than that, its goood. Also instead of manually draggin up the lock screen, hit enter. bertbaby described how to disable it completely. I think space bar works too.

    They didn't TOTALLY replace the OS we know and love with some bullshit tablet interface. They just put the bullshit interface over what we all know and love.

    Also

    Download VLC for videos and remember to get Acrobat reader! Also make the Windows Image viewer your default for viewing images and you will never enter the Metro UI again until you reboot.

    Embrace the change! Thank god its not APPLE!

    I just read this..
    "Wait till you need to get to safe mode"
    Oh shit, that's been changed?!

    I apologize for having disparaged the profoundly useful nature of hallucinogens, and the honor and integrity of their Users.

    After installing Classic Shell you need to go to control panel and disable more junk in there or that charms bar rubbish comes out and annoys the hell out of you. So go to the new start in the bottom left corner and type in the search box, touchpad. Then disable them all except buttons. It worked for me and made my new HP laptop with Windows 8 usable.

    Funny how the OP throws around a clusterfuck of scientific words as if it's supposed to impress the reader, ignorantly switches from a natural hallucinogen to a synthetic one in medias res yet acts as if they're the same, describes their alleged effects in a corporate sense, then states he has no experience with hallucinogens in the slightest.

    Despite the fact that the completely unnecessary tangent (which seems more hallucinogenically-induced than the operating system itself) fails to make any conceivable point.

    Aside from that - if the designers had created the majority of the UI under the influence of shrooms, it would likely be much more intuitive than that which is the result of influence of careless corporate control.

    Interesting.

    There is a great and free software to add the menu bar again to the task bar.

    Classic Shell is free and very good with lots of optimization options
    http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/index.html
    Does this load the start menu straight from startup, or does it still start with the tiles?

    Default Windows 8 is a Piece of Shit, and Here's the Solution:

    I haven't used Windows 8 yet but it seems like every Windows computer that I have ever bought went to crap in less than 6 months. We still have 3 computers here on Windows but we finally got a Mac and it's so much better (at least IMO). The only thing that sucks about it is most of the programs out there are for Windows. I have been wondering about Windows 8. In their commercial they made it look like the best thing since sliced bread lol. I should have known it would suck though. There aren't many things in life that I hate more than Windows. Very interesting post btw, it definitely grabbed my attention lol.
