Makes Windows 7 feel outdated; start menu returning soon,
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (CD-ROM)
I find it extremely hard to use Windows 7 now after getting used to Windows 8.1, and with the Spring Update released today it just keeps getting better and better.
Windows 8.1 is easy to use with the traditional keyboard and mouse. Apps are now easier to close and minimise and you can pin them to the taskbar. As I write this, another update is coming which will BRING BACK the start menu on the desktop and allow you to run Windows 8 style apps in windowed mode. Once that update is released, there will be no reason to hold off on Windows 8.1.
I had mixed reviews when trying Windows 8 in the Dev Preview, Consumer Preview and Release Preview, but it's clear Microsoft recognise that we don't all use touch devices and are pushing to make all users happy. Give it a go.
