I've got a sound issue with itunes but i think it's my sound driver, not itunes.
Anyways, I've given this a fair chance and its been my primary OS the past month or whenever it came out.
Likes: I like the service pack update for windows 7. All the under the hood changes. Like copy n paste doing its thing with any errors to be addressed at the end of it. More details. I'd pay for an update to windows 7.1 even.
Dislikes: This just isn't worth putting up with Metro. This is some other OS. It's not windows. I hate it. Maybe you might like a Metro tablet, but I don't see the point. I sure as heck don't want it on my desktop. For the first time, this is something I don't want to pay anything for. I'm thinking they should pay me just to put up with it. It really is that bad.
If the Metro apps bundled here are what is capable (and why would MS design and include them if they weren't), then this is sad. A cruel joke to veteran windows users.
And the back breaker is MS making metro apps the default apps for opening music, pics, video, etc. This is the first thing i changed. But what's concerning about this is MS seemingly wanting to make windows..or desktop mode apps..a thing of the past. Legacy. Not preferred.
I have a huge problem with this. Metro is being forced down my neck and i don't like it. Rather than take certain features or functions of their mobile system and simply integrate into windows and actually improve the experience, (like Apple is doing with theirs), windows is a hybrid mess.
I'll need windows for work applications and this won't change. But for the first time, i've no desire for the next version of windows. I'm definitely considering getting a Mac later. Something that MS has forced me to consider.
Be careful MS.
