  • Just a reminder, or for those that dont already know, those using win 8 or 8.1 you can get the start menu back and boot to the desktop using the free program Classic Shell, Win 8.1 is coming out with an update that gives you the start menu back, but I doubt theres anything classic about it, Classic Shell will let you use the start menu from any version of windows, works on Vista, Win7 Win 8 and 8.1, heres a screenshot of Classic Shell used on Windows 7. ---------> http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h312/ColdWinter61/ClassicShellWin7_zpsf77f7a0d.jpg

    I do not miss the start button anymore

  • I do not miss the start button anymore
    Me neither. That little icons and folders list limited to the left side of the screen don't offer any advantage over pinning the apps you want in the start screen / task bar, you have much more space. Win+X (right-click start button) menu gives me access to many useful Control Panel shortcuts (not that I access it everyday) and the user folders are accessible via Windows Explorer. I use my CPU power button to put my PC to "sleep" (and I don't think the power button at the Charms or Ctrl+Alt+Del is very hard to use, though they already included a power menu in the Win+X and at the top of the start screen in 8.1+updates too). The Search feature was the only one that wasn't better in 8.0 since it required manually setting which data you'd like to search (apps, settings or files) via specific shortcuts for each or a drop-down menu, but in 8.1 it searches everything at the same time.

    Microsoft detailed the decisions that led them to drop the menu and design a Start screen, addressing the complaints, etc. It seems users ignored their explanations. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/tags/start/

    It's actually sad to see the "classic" start menu coming back, and also windowed metro apps (opposed to snapping which seems to work better as you won't have overlapping windows hiding content from others). MS wants to please everybody even the whiners, that makes it seem like it lacks direction. A unified UI for all kinds of devices or with little adaptations is an exciting idea for me, it kind of makes part of responsive web design ideas, and while metro apps retain that philosophy in the core OS it seems to be dead now. Not that I care much about the Windows OS, as all it brings are platform-specific apps (OS lock-in), while as the "web as the platform" evolves it brings responsive cross-platform cross-browser apps (obs: Google Chrome OS isn't about that).

  • Rafael, I tried to install Ubuntu on my computer but it did not worked. After the boot the screen freezed, I couldn't use it. I updated video driver and it did not resolved.

  • Try Linux Mint, it based on Ubuntu, but better.

  • I do not know if I am going to try to use Linux again.

  • Weird... Was it a properly downloaded LiveCD? I had some problems when I put Fedora into a faulty USB drive. Well, you probably got better help/instructions somewhere else at the time(?).

    Linux is nice after the initial setup ('cause of the world we live in today where proprietary tech became de facto standards for media consumption for example). If you don't care about AAA games and some software... Though some will say there are workarounds for it (searching for alternative software to run on Linux, or fiddling with Wine, and nowadays you can open any documents LibreOffice has trouble rendering at Microsoft's OneDrive / Office Online). It's an opportunity to experiment with different designs and ideas if you're open minded to learn different ways to do things.

    I saw you saying you think Mac OS is better than other systems. Why specifically?
