It's starting to get like the linux community (just look for the "what happened to arch linux?" post) either you know how to use and modify the os or get sort of attacked by people that actually knows how to do it, change just the part of "know how to use the os" by "like metro interface" and see how similar they are...



This Sums up the reason why i sometimes feel i should not post a question on here, as Arceles says you post a question about something you dont know how to do and then get berated for being "stupid"

Windows 8 threads and news pieces receive the same vitriol that pretty much anything Apple related gets.

Apple iPhone User: I like my iPhone
Troll: You're a blind iSheep in the Cult of Steve!

Windows 8 User: I love how fast Windows 8 is.
Troll: YOU WORK FOR M$!!

You honestly don't even have to put down anything else. If you just like or even use something, you get labeled a fanboy.

As a user of both, I'm used to the crap from every end, and it doesn't bother me anymore.

I can accept people like it, I'm divided myself personally. I think some things are great and others are very poor.

Same here. Overall (using Start8&Decor8), I prefer it to Windows 7.

I don't think it really needed to be said. You're definitely not the only one.

let me just get my popcorn and soda ready for this one.

also Neowin was based as a Microsoft news site so not sure why people are surprised that there are Microsoft fans here. And I am certain there are current and previous Microsoft Employees on this forum (I mark myself on this as I am a previous employee)

Wouldn't any MS employee be paid? Just sayin'.

Shame MS? What's it have to do with Microsoft. Are you saying that any MS employee should be banned from the site just because of where they work? What kind of prejudice bull **** is that?

Riiight...I'd have to assume that you're an Apple employee trolling here then going by that logic.

yes, but they should be neutral. They should be pusing false fact about windows 8
