Windows 8 Pro OEM full version 64-bit fast and easy. I have done many installs of Windows Systems back to version 2.1. This install of Windows 8 Pro made getting up and running easy.

I'm dual-booting this with Debian now, as girlfriend needed something to run Microsoft Office on. the interface is different, but it works well enough. The install was painless, no issues. We had the whole thing running in under 30 minutes. A pleasant surprise, administrator tools had a utility for resizing the partition so replacing Debian (Windows goes on first) was very easy. There are Windows versions of Linux software I use (Corel AfterShot, Hammrick's Vuescan) so I've used it a lot over the past week. Debian Linux still seems slightly quicker and cooler (the fan doesn't run as much), but aside from that it does what it's supposed to do. If you need Windows I recommend giving this one a spin.

I am finally getting used to Windows 8. It is an okay OS, I dont like it as well as Windows 7. I will give you a warning, if you are installing this software on a computer that had another version of Windows 8, you may have a hard time. The Windows 8 product key seems to be embedded in the bios in a lot of the new computers coming with W8 pre-installed. When you install the pro version, it activates with the non-pro license. When you manually enter your key it will not accept it because it doesn't match with the key embedded in your system. I called Microsoft and they said my Windows was faulty, which was not the case.

W8 full 64-bit version

Price was very good, no doubt because MS got too creative and and the users couldn't easily figure how to use the software. Windows 7 is selling for greater amount, hence this could be looked at as a buying opportunity while the price is low. Old features you used before in Windows 7 are hidden and it takes some figuring out. Start menu is gone, but hear that it will be put back soon. Will not install legacy programs as Windows 7 does with compatibility mode. Windows 8 requires all software to be 64-bit for this verson.

I have used a number of Microsoft Products and found some difficult and others not so much. This product is intuitive and easy to work with as long as you don't compare it to other OS while you are learning it and it helped my brand new system work smooth with all the features I wanted.
