Windows 8.1 upgrade, is now available to download and Upgrade To Windows 8.1. If you are already using Windows 8.1 and want to download Windows 8.1 Free Download Full Version. Nov 18, 2012 I brought Windows 8 and installed it as a full version in 32-bit. I want to switch it to the 64-bit. How do I go about doing so?
The OEM license allows the OEM to resell the PC. The Personal Use license is for individuals who are building (and supporting) their own PCs.Neither are transferable once on the PC, but the OEM license allows for transferring the entire PC to different users. Model Brand Microsoft Model FQC-05920 Details Name Windows 8 Professional 32-bit (Full Version) 32-bit Professional System Requirements 1 GHz or faster processor 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver OEM Features Feature It's Windows reimagined and reinvented from a solid core of Windows 7 speed and reliability. It's an all-new touch interface.
It's a new Windows for new devices. Pros: I looks interesting. Cons: This version of windows is absolute crapola. Beyond Microsoft hiding the settings and shut-down menus behind a series of 4 to 5 clicks and right-clicks; difficulty navigating to even the accessory apps makes this OS frustrating. I have lost count of the blue-screens this thing has encountered which it does for every reason under the sun and no reason under the sun. 'Send details to Microsoft' after each blue-screen; I've done that and still, it blue screens for no reason at all.
On the flip side, it is an interesting-looking piece of software but has nowhere near the refinements of Windows 7. This OS is Junk. Other Thoughts: Their 8.1 release needs to completely erase Windows 8 and install Windows 7 in it's place. Pros: Your Grandma might like it, unless she already has computer experience. Cons: Too many to name. Interface is watered down and unintuitive, start button is gone, you are required to use the Metro to tinker with certain options. Compatibility with games has gone to the toilet also, as extra icing on the poop cake.
If all you want to do is play Angry Birds and check your 'Live Tiles' for the latest sports scores, this is the OS for you. If you want a functioning computer that can perform tasks besides singing and dancing for your amusement, jeebus help you. Pros: Easily replaced with Linux? I was able to get the Start Menu back with Classic Shell, but that's not a 'Pro' towards the OS itself. Pros: I sat here for a full minute trying to think of something to put here. I've got nothing. Swf File Compressor. Cons: Where do I start?
Opening Vdf Files more. If I put everything here, there wouldn't be enough room on the web page. I have been a loyal Windows user since the Windows 3.1 days, and am not anti-Microsoft. I just think this OS is the mix between a train wreck and a plane crash. Here is the condensed version: 1.
No Start Menu. This has been the staple of Windows for 18 years, but this version of Windows jerks the rug out from under you. (That is literally what it looks like as the Metro screen sweeps in.) It shouldn't take a third-party app to return Start Menu functionality either. The Control Panel doesn't have any of the controls in any of the same places I am used to seeing them. This is especially annoying for an IT professional that has been going the same general places for 18 years to change settings. I don't have a touchscreen, so the Metro interface is just plain annoying to use with my mouse.
The metro screen looks like a epileptic-inducing Vegas casino sign. The whole thing just sort of seems like an immature product - bandaided together and thrown out there. Other Thoughts: I am going to hold out for the next version. Hopefully Microsoft will take this negative feedback to heart and produce something better in the next version.
Historically, it has been unwise to adopt the first version of a new line of Microsoft software. Pros: It works with Microsoft Office.
Cons: This software is the most anoying OS I have ever used; I will have to say I would be highly annoyed if I paid 139.00 dollars for this. I would rather use windows NT than this. Wonder what was going throught the minds of MS designers when they released this OS. There may be a way to set this up so it is an acceptable OS but I don't see myself spending time making repairs on something that should be shinney and new. Other Thoughts: I will have to say that I didn't try this on a touch screen.
I think Microsoft needs to decide where they are going and then go first class. I do like their word processing software not sure if it is worth the money but MS windows 8 should be free as there are better OS systems for free. Pros: Stability: has been comparable to Windows 7 if not better. Speed: Modest speed. Faster response time from Notification Area Icons. Security: built in antivirus Cons: The introduction of Metro brings a learning curve and is definitely intended for the tablet environment. It has no place for the desktop computer.
Especially when considering the lack of a start button. Metro is my only frustration with Windows 8. Other Thoughts: The new minimalist look to the desktop and windows has grown on me. There are obvious ways around the new start environment, some are fortunately free. My current favorite alternative is Classic Start Menu. With it I've disabled the 'Active Corners' and skipped the Metro Screen while replacing the missing start menu.
I highly recommend going to a store to demo this OS. This copy of Windows 8 Pro was installed on a Gateway P-6831FX machine. Specs: 4GB RAM, Intel Core Dual 1.83GHz, GeForce 8800M GTS, 7200rpm hdd.
