Reviews

Extremely fast, easier to navigate than Windows 8, and easy to install.

from completed build Critically Fractal

While 8.1 is an improvement over 8 in terms of performance, and they managed to place the start button on the desktop.... The UI choice is horrendous, should of been it's own thing for touch tablets.

Swiping things in certain places on accident brings up search charms, and all this other crazy non-sense. Moving your windows occasionally minimizes everything. It's a hassle to just have to turn all this stuff off as well.

If you have to get Windows 8 or have that thing pre-installed, get the update as soon as possible to 8.1.

from completed build Tali Nova (First Build)

Pro: Easy to install.

Con: personally not familiar with windows 8.
