Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 --- What benifits over W7-64?

I don't know any benefits other than consolidated store for apps.

I really feel like i'm running 2 different operating systems. Majority of the time i'm in desktop but for email i go back to metro. I have programs open in desktop and apps (which i have to admit look really nice) in metro.

I don't plan to upgrade my main PC from win7-64 because i have too many programs open at once for it to work in metro. I need to be able to see outlook while i'm in the browser and that doesn't work in full screen apps ( i know you can do side by side but that's only 2 programs).

Win8 will be good for tablets and hybrids. HP envy 2 looks like a really nice concept. Just need a superior company to make it.

IMO, I don't see any benefit over W7. I've hated Metro, from the start, since I can't scroll it vertically. Horizontally is just too awkward on a traditional PC (might be fine on a smartphone or tablet w/ touch). Think I'll save my 50-70 bucks.

You don't need to use Metro apps on your desktop. Use the desktop for desktop... not sure why I'm keep saying that.

I still loving Windows 8 for desktop. And I don't even have a touchscreen monitor...
