I bought a PC with Windows 8 in it and being an IT Tech I was well able to adapt to the new user interface, what I got tired of was the fact that my additional hard drives caused issues with pipeline updates failing, it failed to comprehend my installation of Adobe Creative Suite products, and about every 3 or 4 times I tried to play online games it rebooted, locked up, and in the restart decided it couldn't handle life in general and took itself back to factory settings. I couldn't get work done, I couldn't play, I had problems with it dying during my email usage for crying out loud. There was one occasion it went to factory settings 3 times in a row without my getting anything going on in between! So, I hit the internet with my good computer that uses Window 7 and learned how to take this Win8 monstrosity back to Win7 and used this purchase of Windows 7 HP w/ SP1 as its replacement platform. Not one lick of trouble anymore. The Windows 8 monster is dead. I've used Windows products going all the way back to version 2 when it wasn't widely available and looked like DOS 6. Windows 8 is the worst OS since Windows ME (Millennium)! Thanks goodness Wal-Mart and other retailers still sell Windows 7!
