Windows 8.1 Pro

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (1-License) [Boxed]:

I installed 8.1 on my MacBook Pro with Boot Camp & Parathe eqivalent of 3 terrific laptops integrated into 1.
8.1 boots quickly and runs more smoothly than the Win8 I had on my UltraBook that I used the free upgrade to 8.1.
Yosemite, Windows desktop & Win Metro work together seamlessly.
My only reservation is that Windows 10 is coming out soon & will probably address some of the shortcomings of Metro - & I kinda wish the Mac had touchscreen to take advantage of the tablet-like features.

Smoother than expected

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (1-License) [Boxed]:

A knowledgable friend warned me not to use the upgrade, but I did anyway. It turned out to be simple enough and I did not have problems after the install. Smooth sailing here.

Microsoft Windows 8.1, disapointing

By Sam

from Montreal

Verified Buyer

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (1-License) [Boxed]:

Found Microsoft Windows 8.1 very disapointing.
There is not much freedom to configure the system to your requirements; Wnidows 8.1 seems to railroad you in the PC settings with not much choice. For one who worked for fourteen years with Windows XP (one of the best OS from Microsoft) I find Windows 8.1 useless and a total waste of money. I would strongly suggest waiting for Windows 10, which is an amalgamation of the best of Windows 7 and Windows 8. And yes, there will be a task bar in Windows 10 which is absent in Windows 8.1

Upgrade from Win 7 Prem to Win 8 BEWARE

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (1-License) [Boxed]:

bought several copies for multiple users at our company. Microsoft failed considerably on documentation and user communication. It BREAKS installed apps if you DO NOT select convert APPLICATION and PERSONAL files. Tthey will not migrate. No brainer I know but that is NOT DEFAULT and option doesn't always show migrate APPLICATIONS.

CLEAN INSTALL no personal files
INSTALL and Personal files
BE VERY AWARE or you have to reinstall all apps
3 out of 5 failed
Extremely frustrating

New Good and Bad features

By 111111

from Plano, Texas

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (1-License) [Boxed]:

Window 8 has added new features, that are nice, such as the use of the touch screen. I think the use of the tiles could be better implemented, I would rather the charms be a part of a task-bar rather than the difficult swipe business, or at least a touch procedure, with finger or mouse-pointer. I am glad to see more options for recovery. Sorry to see the loss of Solitary and other similar games. The selling of these games, poorer ones at that, is a cheep and very disappointing shot.
