Worst Idea...go from Windows XP to Mac

Posted by Francis Obasi on March 30, 2014 0 Comments

I have read a lot of posts that suggest people should jump from XP to Mac OS instead of simply upgrading to Windows 8 machine. One of the reasons behind this advice seems to stem from the notion that Windows 8 will be such an "alien" OS for somebody who is life long XP user. Wow. Just wow. Um. have you seen a mac OS? It feels so left handed and alien that atleast with Windows 8, you have the Desktop mode which is more identical to old school XP. I mean all you have to do is click on the Desktop "live tile " and that's it.  And with the Windows 8.1 you can even have your PC boot in Desktop mode automatically...and thats it. I still do not understand why people think its soooo cool to bash any new Windows that comes out. It was exactly the same people who told us to stick with windows 98 when xp came out, and then vista came out (granted Vista was horibble), they told us to stick with XP. When windows 7 was launched...they also told us not to upgrade and when windows 8 was launched...oh they came out in full force and urged everyone to stay with windows 7 even though more than 90 percent of them never even touched Windows 8. They are the ones telling you that Win 8 was made only for touch screen even though that makes absolutely no sense.

Windows 8 is amazing. It runs like a charm. Mine has not crashed on me. I can easily access my files virtually from any screen. The apps are helpful and if I choose not to use any App, I do not have to. Most of the work I do on my computer are mostly in the desktop mode but sometimes I like  to browse the apps on the app store. So please let the idiotic screams of failure keep screaming...I bet you, if Microsoft comes out with Windows 9, those same people will tell you to stick with windows 8 till they work out the bugs.
