    I went back to the iPhone 5 from the 5S. The 5S was great and all, but I didn't find much if any bump in performance with my regular use, and I frequently had to use my passcode as TouchID would mysteriously forget what my fingers looked like. Don't judge, I made a whole bunch of money off of it, and I'll revisit my upgrade when the i6 comes out.
    The 5 is a great device ! BTW Welcome to our 20K Post Challenge thread ninjamattic ! We love it when new peeps join us

    been running it for a few months now it's really nice. I still don't like the changes in Windows 8 but since they aren't going anytime soon I've learned to overcome it.
    I'm used to a Windows 8 now. I need to update to 8.1.

    I would love some snow! Here in the Bay Area, CA we get no snow ever. If we want it, we drive. I'm planning to take my wife and son north one Christmas just so I can have a white one.
    Hello fellow west coaster!!

    I actually like Win8 (and 8.1 so far). I'm using a traditional desktop/laptop now. However, I'll be getting a convertible tablet soon (probably Lenovo Yoga).

    My desk at work is covered in Star Wars Lego. I don't seem to have matured well.

    I'm used to a Windows 8 now. I need to update to 8.1.
    I'm used to it but because I have customized it to get around the stupid changes they made.

    I actually like Win8 (and 8.1 so far). I'm using a traditional desktop/laptop now. However, I'll be getting a convertible tablet soon (probably Lenovo Yoga).
    I have been a Windows user now for close to if not over 15 years. I've used 95, 98, Millenium, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and now 8. I have used NT and Server OSes on a daily basis at work. So I'm not some Mac OS user spouting off about Windows. Some of the changes in Windows 8 is just stupid plain and simple. At the company I work for it is a 95% Windows environment. So I'm talking from both a consumer standpoint and a business user standpoint. Microsoft has spent more than a decade training people to use their OS. An OS to me is supposed to make a user's computing life easier, better and more effecient. So when you do stupid things like seperating the Shutdown and Log off to two different screens it makes no sense. You get rid of the Start button which is like iOS' home button. It's what users know, it's the first place they look for everything. You have a Full Screen Internet Explorer and a Windowed (Desktop Mode) Internet Explorer which is confusing. You give the ability to dock apps (weather, twitter, etc.) to the side of the screen except you don't give the ability to scale it down so the user can have both the information and a usable portion of the screen. I have spent the time since we have been getting Windows 8 machines explaining the same thing over and over and over to people who have used Windows for the last more than 15 years. Microsoft to me have turned their backs on the users that already exist in exchange for the users who will become the users of tomorrow. They have used the same OS for the touch devices as are on the desktop in the hopes that the same way iOS will draw people to Mac OS this will draw people to the desktop. I'm not saying Windows 8 is all bad I'm just saying the things that are bad are stupid changes that make no sense. Thank god I have easily found a way to put back a simulation of the start button of sorts without using some stupid third party crapware which is about 80% of the reason people push back from Windows 8.

    My issue is why not take time to make the OS better. Things like having a utility that backs up the registry daily or weekly so that when a machine gets a virus a part of the process would be to restore a clean working registry from a day or two before it hit. Why not make it possible for the hardware and the OS to become independent? I want to take a hard drive that is already loaded out of one computer with failing hardware put it into another computer and just boot up and get to work. Alternately I want to take a failing hard drive out of a computer put in a new one and just get to work. Windows backup goes part of the way towards making the second scenario possible but it is so limited. Try to backup a 512GB drive and then restore it to a 256GB drive lol good luck. These are things that users don't see but if they were changed would make a HUGE improvement. There are a ton of other things that come up from day to day that are common complaints by people that haven't changed from version to version. So this is why I have a problem with the changes in Windows 8. It's not like I can't get used to using it but I shouldn't have to get used to it or make some band aid solution to get use out of it.
