All of my games run better on 8. In fact everything runs faster.

Windows 8 is a great OS. All the people that hate on it have yet to give me a legitimate reason as to why.

The tiles can be customized and grouped exactly as you please, don't see what all the hate is for?

My guess would be that the biggest haters are the ones who have not used it and hate on it just because it is the "cool" thing to hate on Microsoft at the moment.

Yeah, just get a start menu replacement program (startisback or start8) and windows 8 becomes windows 7 supercharged with a coat of new paint.

It is just soo much faster.

It's the exact opposite for me, I had Windows 8 from work for a week, every app ran slower or with glitches, and the whole interface just looked like it was meant for phones or touch PC's.

Windows 8 proves technically capable, but its user interface leaves much to be desired, lacking the efficiency previous iterations of windows once had.

Windows 8.1 with the beta update is the best Windows ever but, they still have a lot to improve.

gamernova1815d ago

I love windows 8 and currently running the Beta 8.1 Don't really care too much about battlefield but it's nice to finally see the performance gains from windows 8 on games. Hopefully this trend continues.

In other words it'll look better on Xbox one because of direct x exclusivity
